The National Park feels worlds apart from the bustle of city life. Yet it is less than an hour from Glasgow and not much more from Edinburgh. A place of contrasts, it covers four distinctly different and special areas: Ben Lomond standing guard over Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain. The Trossachs, wild glens and sparkling lochs between Callander and Aberfoyle. Breadalbane, the high country of the north, with some of Scotland's finest munros, Ben Lui, Ben Challum, Ben More and Ben Vorlich. The Argyll Forest of the Cowal peninsula watched over by the Arrochar Alps and bordered by sea lochs.
There is something for everyone to enjoy in Scotland's first National Park including low level walking, cycling, sailing, hill walking and for the more adventurous, canyoning. Whatever the weather, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs provides a stunning backdrop to your visit. National Park events are organised or supported by Park staff throughout the area. The events are free of charge and include everything from nature walks to arts and crafts.
