Holiday Travel Guide
Loch Earn showing a lake or waterhole and forests

Visit this Scottish national park to hike through ancient woodlands, relax on the shore of the largest body of freshwater in Britain and enjoy local produce.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, just a 1-hour drive north of Glasgow. The villages in the area are steeped in history and legend, and locally sourced food takes pride of place at many of the local restaurants.

Start your adventures at Loch Lomond, the national park’s glittering centerpiece. This lake, which is 23 miles (37 kilometers) long and 5 miles (8 kilometers) wide, has been used for generations for water skiing, swimming, fishing and sailing. Pack a picnic and have lunch on its beautiful shores or rent a boat from one of the local rental companies and head out onto the water.

Hike along the river and through bluebell woods in the Argyll Forest or bring a bicycle and use the network of cross-country mountain biking routes. Established in 1935, Argyll Forest is Britain’s oldest forest park.

To the east of Ben Lomond (Beacon Mountain) is the Trossachs, an area of wild glens and glittering lochs. It is known as “Rob Roy Country” after the famous outlaw who hid from authorities here in the 17th century.

Head north to join the Rings of Breadalbane. These walking, road cycling and trail biking routes are a relaxing way to explore the area’s small towns, lochs and valleys. For those who prefer to get a lift, a mini bus also services this route.

If you are visiting in September, don’t miss the Food and Drink Festival which is designed to showcase local produce and attracts more than 20,000 people.

Most of the villages in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park can be accessed by rail and bus. Once in the area, use the network of buses to get around. Cycling is also a popular way to see the sights. Bicycles can be transported on many of the train and bus services but it is advisable to check with the transport company in advance.

Wild paradise
"We had a wonderful holiday. Take Smidge, or another insect repellent for the midgies, and all will be well. A kayak for the loch is recommended. Such a comfortable, warm and spacious house."
