Romantic glens & braesLoch Lomond and the Trossachs

Deep, glittering lochs shimmer in the rare Scottish sunshine, surrounded by ancient woodlands that are home to a variety of wildlife, including the elusive red squirrel. Mountains stretch their time-weathered ridges to the sky and waterfalls rumble and flow over jagged edges into cool, crystal pools below. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is the perfect location for Scottish locals and tourists alike, with vast expanses of lakes to kayak or paddle board on, mountains to climb and stunning wild camping spots that combine to create an adventure-or-leisure seeker’s paradise.

Loch Lomond is a large freshwater loch, the largest inland stretch of water in Britain. The Trossachs National Park is centred on the loch and encompasses it and the Trossachs which is an area of wooded glens and lochs to the south west of Scotland. It was the first Scottish national park and is the fourth largest in the UK, covering 720 square miles. The park also encompasses many mountain peaks including 21 Munros such as Ben Lomond and Ben Lui and 19 Corbetts. There are also two forest parks here and 57 designated special nature conservation sites.
