Stirlingshire - Loch Lomond & The Trossachs

Visit this amazing National Park, full of lakes, paths, woodlands and villages

A place where the lowlands and highlands meet, with a variety of scenery in the north, including tranquil lochs, rugged mountains, and rolling lowland landscapes.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is a popular tourist destination that offers a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy.

There are lots of different cycling routes available in the National Park for all abilities, including family-friendly bike rides and hardcore mountain trails. Or, you could take a leisurely stroll along a tranquil loch, climb a formidable Munro, or learn about the history of a charming nearby village.

It's also a nature lovers dream: red squirrels, black grouse, golden eagles, osprey, pine marten, and otters are just a few of the many species of wildlife that can be found in this protected area. Loch Lomond itself is the park's center. In all of Britain, you won't find a larger lake or loch, and you arguably won't find one that's more beautiful either.

If you agree that nothing is more enjoyable than spending an afternoon on the water in a boat (or perhaps a kayak, canoe, jetski, cruiser, or even wind surfing), then Loch Lomond is the place for you. alternatively, take a boat ride to see Ben Lomond, Scotland's most southerly Munro, and the arched peaks of the Arrochar Alps in all their glory.

Loch Lomond Shores, which can be found at the water's southern end, is unquestionably one of Britain's most stunning shopping areas. You can shop for fine local fare and well-known Scottish brands. Stop for a drink and decide what to do next. Any fisherman will tell you that there is a lot going on below the surface as well, so keen anglers are in luck.

Six of Scotland’s Great Trails (long distance routes) connect in and around the National Park and are part of the national walking network across Scotland. And there are a lot of interesting areas to explore on foot. Stroll from the open lavish scenery of the southern segment to the rambling glens and rough tops in the north and you'll see the reason why geologists love this spot to such an extent. Because the fault line that separates the Lowlands from the Highlands runs right through the park, this area can be anything from a rugged hill to a wooded nook.

There are 21 Munros (mountains above 3,000ft) in the National Park, the highest of which is Ben More at 1,174m.
