Loch Lomond and the Trossachs Scotland
You don’t have to travel to the highlands to experience Scotland in its finest form - Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are just 40 miles north of Glasgow. Stretching across 720 nature packed square miles, the region is a must for anyone escaping the city for a weekend of serenity. You can choose to stay on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, awakening to gentle lapping of water and vistas of rolling hills from a 5-star suite, or opt for the peaceful natural beauty of Loch Katrine or Loch Ard. Each loch has its own appeal. If you enjoy kayaking, windsurfing, gourmet cuisine and retail therapy Scottish style, Loch Lomond should be at the top of your list. However, if you prefer to spend leisurely days hiking, cycling, golfing and sipping single malt at a nearby distillery, choose Loch Katrine or Loch Ard in Trossachs National Park. Climbers will be in their element, Scotland’s most southerly munro, Ben Lomond is easily accessible wherever you decide to stay and fans of Scottish folklore can follow in the footsteps of Rob Roy MacGregor or step into a scene from Amazon’s ‘Outlander’ series on the shores of Loch Katrine.
