Close to you! Loch Lomond



Scotland is gifted with lush natural beauty, and most people in Scotland live within easy reach of a National Park.


I would dare to say the whole of Scotland is a National Park, as beautiful landscapes are not confined to the limits of a National Park. This national treasure of nature and cultural heritage makes of Scotland an all round holiday experience. There is so much to see!

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is one of these national treasures, a natural paradise on earth with a rich cultural heritage of Gaelic roots, quaint villages and industrious people offering the best of the local produce to the world.

Food and drink are elevated to art in this region. The outstanding quality of the local produce is the pride of the communities living in the National Park.

 With idyllic places to lodge and eat, it is always a truly authentic experience to visit.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park cover a big area, with Loch Lomond being the largest stretch of inland water in Britain. 

A boat bus service interconnecting the villages around the shores is a good opportunity to enjoy the loch and tour around the most picturesque villages, and some hiking and cycling trails include a boat bus ride to the next stretch of the trail.

Or just a trip on a boat peacefully cruising the lochs, with different cruises to choose from. Cruising Loch Lomond or Loch Katrina gives you the full experience of the lochs, islands and villages. 

There are several companies offering boat trips and boat bus service


Bagging Munros, hiking or cycling along beautiful trails, angling, playing golf, out on a trip on the Loch or enjoying the superb local food, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is really an exhilarating experience for everybody. 

Highland Games are held in Balloch each year in July, an exceptional opportunity to visit the park.

Distilleries and breweries around the Trossachs and Loch Lomond share the outstanding quality and spirit of this truly special place, and are an attraction themselves to the fans of the most popular and internationally renowned Scottish product.  

Local Water of Life


Raw nature, waterfalls, wildlife, and all the delicacies the local communities have to offer, your visit to the National Park is an unforgettable one.
