Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

The new Loch Lomond National Park has ensured protection for what is not only Britain's largest freshwater lake, but one of its most beautiful, celebrated in ballad and song. West of Loch Lomond are the steep Arrochar Alps towering above Loch Long together with scores of much less visited lower hills stretching down to the seaboard. To the east is the Trossachs - a delightful landscape of forests, lochs and hills that has long been known as Scotland in miniature.

The variety means that there are routes catering for walking at all levels of ability, from easy rambles for the family, through longer, strenous hikes to ascents of the major Munros. There is also extensive listings of places to stay, including hotels, self catering cottages, and hostels. Each route is downloadable to your GPS in both GPX (for Memory Map, Anquet etc.) or QUO format.
