Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Scotland

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

This National Park was Scotland's first, and with over 700 square miles of magnificent mountains, glens and lochs, there is a lot to discover.

Loch Lomond is protected by towering mountains in the north and levels out to a scattering of islands in the south, with pretty villages lining its picturesque shores. The best way to experience the views of the Loch is from the waters themselves. The Loch Lomond Water Bus Service is a great way to get a feel for all the different locations.

The area is a combination of glens, forests and lochs and is known as 'Rob Roy Country', being the chosen hiding place for the famous outlaw, amongst the dense undergrowth. Sir Walter Scott's The Lady of The Lake was also inspired by the area and special cruises, on a steamship named SS Sir Walter Scott, take tours of his Loch Katrine.

The highlands in the northern area of the Park encourage enchanting myths and legends and play host to the lovely Falls of Dochart. The Breadalbane Folklore Centre near the Falls has an interactive exhibition. There are a couple of visitor centres positioned right on the shore of Loch Lomond too: the National Park Centre Balmaha and the Luss Visitor Centre, both of which have exhibitions and access to walking routes.
