About Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, located in Scotland, was created in July 2002 under the National Parks Act 2000 to safeguard an area of outstanding and diverse landscapes, habitats and communities, parts of which were coming under severe visitor and recreational pressures. The National Park boasts some of the most stunning scenery in the world from the breathtaking mountains and glens of the Trossachs to the vast tranquil beauty of Loch Lomond, mainland UK's largest body of water. 15,600 people live in the park, which is customarily split into four sections: Breadalbane, Loch Lomond, The Trossachs, and Argyll Forest Park. One of the main purposes of the National Park is to promote the great outdoors and there are no shortage of activities available for a vast range of interests. Half of all the people in Scotland live within a one-hour drive of the park.
Things to do in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
Cycling is a great way to explore the park. Try the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path, which wanders along the loch's west shore. Bikes are available for hire at Balloch, as well as in other park communities. Birds (and bird-watchers) are very much at home in the Trossachs, where signature species include golden eagles, ospreys, and peregrine falcons. A quarter of Britain's flowering wild plant species grow inside the park's borders. Climbers love the area too, with a total of nine climbs on offer at Ardvorlich crag (and many more elsewhere), you'll find a good mix of balance and technical climbing.
For walkers seeking a challenge, the West Highland Way passes through the park, while the mountains of Ben Lomond, and the Arrochar Alps attract most hikers. Spend the day out on Loch Lomond kayaking, canoeing, swimming, angling and more - the sheer size of the lake is incredible! On nearby Loch Katrine, visitors can travel on the historic steamship SS Sir Walter Scott.
Explore Balloch Castle Country Park - 200 acres surrounding a classic castle, nature trails, and walled gardens. A perfect day out with the children. Throughout the whole year the local communities in the National Park organise events for the whole family. These include guided walks, festivals, markets, concerts and of course the Highland Games - where combatants show off their prowess at traditional Scottish feats of strength. It's never a dull day at Wellsfield Farm either, with adventure parks, fishing lessons, pony club, archery lessons, and outdoor assault courses.
