The Trossachs National Park offers a great range of Hills and Munros for the size of the park area. The most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond, is well-known among hill walkers and because of its location relatively easy to reach from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Ben Lomond is 974m (3,196 ft) high.
Even though there are higher Munros further North of Scotland, The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has a few challenging walks as well. For those who don’t want to climb a mountain, there are also many waymarked and unmarked walks of all levels with fantastic views. It is the beautiful scenery of the Highland Boundary Fault which makes hill walking around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs an unforgettable experience. With views on forests, lochs, farmland, hills and rivers, hill walking in this area is something special.
With the walking choice in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park area being huge and suited to all levels, we highly recommend a visit. From Glenbranter in the west to the Bracklinn Falls above Callander in the east, and similarly from the demanding heights of Ben Lui in the north, to the rewarding stroll up Duncryyne Hill near Gartocharn in the south, there are walking routes for all abilities and degrees of fitness. These even include well-surfaced roads over which general traffic is not permitted – for example, around Loch Katrine, or up to the Sloy Dam.
Much of the walking, especially in Forestry Commission areas, is signposted. The National Park Authority publishes a series of walking guides for various parts of the park.
During your time spend at this beautiful location and for a change of scenery, you could visit loch Lomond shores.
