The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park ensures protection for what is not only Britain’s largest freshwater expanse but also one of its most celebrated. West of Loch Lomond are the steep Arrochar Alps towering above Loch Long, while to the east are the Trossachs – a delightful landscape of forests, lochs and hills with easy access from the visitor hubs of Aberfoyle and Callander. The less explored side of the National Park is the remote but enchanting Cowal Peninsula.

This guide features 40 family-friendly walks that pick their way through the best this part of Scotland has to offer – from the famous heights of Ben Lomond and The Cobbler to delightful hidden glens and shady woodland trails, as well as glorious shorelines and riverbank strolls.

Description

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

Its ‘Bonnie Banks’, as celebrated in the romantic ballad, are clothed with native oakwoods, a fantastic habitat for wildlife and ideal for family walks.To the east are the Trossachs, a compact huddle of rocky hills, dense forests and jewel-like smaller lochs that have been dubbed the ‘Highlands in Miniature’. It was Sir Walter Scott’s poem Lady of the Lake, set on Loch Katrine, and his novel based on the life of Rob Roy that first made the area famous, and it remains a favourite on many itineraries of Scotland. West of Loch Lomond, the scene changes; here, clustered around the head of Loch Long, rise a group of mountains so steep and rocky that they have become known as the Arrochar Alps.
