The Holy Loch is a Sea Loch, a part of the Cowal peninsula coast of the Firth of Clyde, in S.W. Scotland. Dimensions are: one mile wide and two-three miles long dependent on tidal conditions.The name is believed to date from the 6th century, when Saint Munn landed there after leaving Ireland. 

Today, we travelled from Glasgow to Gourock then to Dunoon by ferry and on to Glen Massan in the Cowal Peninsula. Here we availed of swimming in the River Eachaig then back to Dunoon via Kilmun and Holy Loch.
