The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Dunbartonshire is the gateway between the Clyde estuary, with its rich industrial heritage, and the rugged highlands to the north marked by Scotland's first National Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
The abrupt change of scenery from lowland to highland is marked by the highland boundary fault line, a geological coming together of two historic continents to form Britain as we know it, manifested in a series of linear islands within the southern part of Loch Lomond which are rich in natural heritage.
Aside from the plethora of outdoor and sporting activities around and about, we are spoilt by an abundance of nearby cultural and historical attractions which celebrate our area's history, past and recent, and its importance in shaping Scotlands place in modern society.
Tourist information is provided in the cottage for a huge variety of places to visit such as castles at Stirling and Dumbarton, museums and galleries including the superb Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Riverside Museum (transport) in Glasgow, and marvellous houses such as Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House in nearby Helensburgh.
For those interested in the world of whisky our nearest distilleries are Glengoyne (the slowest distilled single malt) and Auchentoshan (triple distilled), both of which offer award winning tours.
Loch Lomond National Park
Curlew Cottage is superbly well placed to explore this wonderfully scenic area. Outdoor and sporting activities abound with golf, walking, cycling and water sports well provided for locally. Scotland’s two largest cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily accessible and provide many wonderful diversions including excellent museums and cultural interest. The iconic Loch Lomond is within walking distance and one of th best views of the Loch is from Duncryne Hill, the top of which is just 20 minutes walk from the front door.
