Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park

Loch Lomond

A tour to the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond is one of natural beauty and spectacular scenery. Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park was established in 2002 as Scotland’s first national park. The park is home to 21 Munros (mountains over 3000 feet), 19 Corbetts (mountains between 2500 and 2999 feet) and 22 larger lochs.

Our first stop at Loch Lomond is the pretty lochside village of Luss, where visitors can take a wander along the shore or browse its craft shops before continuing northwards. Along the western shore of the loch we pause at vantage points to admire the glorious scenery and view Ben Lomond towering above the loch.

At the picturesque lochside town Killin, the River Dochart meets Loch Tay at the dramatic Falls of Dochart. After stopping for a while to admire the thundering falls, we’ll have a delicious lunch in the town before setting off to Balquhidder. In the beautiful parish church here we’ll discover Rob Roy’s grave, last resting place of the famous 18th century Scottish folk hero and outlaw. Often likened to Robin Hood, the outlaw was immortalised in Sir Walter Scott’s novel Rob Roy and several films.

From Balquihidder we travel through stunning scenery and along the shores of Loch Lubnaig towards the popular tourist town of Callander, where there’s time for visitors to enjoy afternoon tea, peruse the local shops or take a walk along the River Teith.

Our route to Aberfoyle takes us along the shores of Lochs Venachar and Achray then over the Duke’s Pass. The pass was constructed as a private road for the Duke of Montrose to access the remotest parts of his estate and only opened for public use in 1931. The beauty of the Trossachs and nearby Loch Katrine inspired Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lady of the Lake. After viewing ‘Katrine in her mirror blue’, we’ll visit the Trossachs Discovery Centre and Scottish Wool Centre at Aberfoyle before making our way back home.
