Loch Lomond and the Trossachs: 40 favourite walks
Paul and Helen Webster
Loch Lomond is not only Britain’s largest freshwater expanse but also one of its most celebrated. West of Loch Lomond's bonnie banks and braes are the steep Arrochar Alps towering above Loch Long, while to the east are the Trossachs – a delightful landscape of forests, lochs and hills with easy access from the visitor hubs of Aberfoyle and Callander. The less explored side of the National Park is the quiet and enchanting Cowal Peninsula. This handy and informative guide features a wide range of walks that pick their way through the best this part of Scotland has to offer – from the famous heights of Ben Lomond and The Cobbler to delightful hidden glens and shady woodland trails, as well as glorious shorelines and riverbank strolls.
The guide includes 40 short to moderate walks. Many walks follow forestry tracks or prepared paths, and mention is made when the terrain is particularly boggy, steep or rocky. High ground may be snow-covered in winter. Waterproofs should be carried and the mountain climbs require full hillwalking clothing, a map and navigation skills.
