Loch Lomond and the Trossachs - 40 Favourite Walks

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs - 40 Favourite Walks

by: Paul and Helen Webster
The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park ensures protection for what is not only Britain's largest freshwater expanse but also one of its most celebrated. West of Loch Lomond are the steep Arrochar Alps towering above Loch Long, while to the east are the Trossachs; a delightful landscape of forests, lochs and hills with easy access from the visitor hubs of Aberfoyle and Callander. The less explored side of the National Park is the remote but enchanting Cowal Peninsula.

This guide features 40 family friendly walks that pick their way through the best this part of Scotland has to offer; from the famous heights of Ben Lomond and the Cobbler to the delightful hidden glens and shady woodland trails, as well as glorious shoreline and riverbank strolls. Each walk entry begins with distance, time and terrain together with an outline of the walk area followed by route finding instructions and a simple colour sketch map.
