The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
This region has a contrasting landscape of lochs, mountains, forests and coastline and it's therefore no coincidence that it's one of the most popular holiday destinations in Scotland. Its popularity is easy to understand when you consider the mouth watering attractions within its boundaries; which include the beautiful Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park in the west and the wonderful forests, mountains and rivers which are characteristic of Tayside and Perthshire to the east. The city of Stirling can also be found in this area, with its rich historical significance in Scottish history and connections to William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The beautiful and unique coastlines here, both on the west coast and east coast, are ideal holiday destinations. Stretching in the west from Oban in the north down to Strathclyde and the Ayr coast, and in the east the coast extends from Dundee and Angus south the along the Fife coast to Edinburgh.
The surrounding area of Argyll has an endless amount to explore including fishing, on sites like Loch Awe with its brown trout and pike or salmon on the River Orchey. It is also home to the Bein Cruachan mountain range. At over 3000ft, the range features several peaks including the ‘The Hollow Mountain' which describes the power station built within the mountain itself. With a cavern the size of the Tower of London used to house a massive power station gathering hydro electricity a kilometre under the ground! The site is open to visitors almost all year round and truly is a one off experience. There is also an abundance of historical sites within the area such as the ruins of Kilchurn Castle and Conan's Kirk all with their own story of the area to tell.
