About the local area

There is a cycle-way close by which can take you to Loch Lomond or Helensburgh, both only 2 miles away. You can explore Glen Fruin’s quieter back roads. There are numerous way marked paths within the surrounding forest where you may hear and see the wild peacocks. The National Park has fantastic mountains to climb including Munro’s and Corbett’s – Ben Lomond, Ben Venue and Ben Ledi to the east or north to the Arrochar Alps and Ben Arthur (better known as “The Cobbler”). There is also an abundance of wildlife with Osprey, red squirrel, deer and pine martens, so bring your binoculars.  There are numerous golf courses in the area and on Loch Lomond side. A variety of boat trips can be taken on the loch or you can hire a boat/kayak, go fishing and explore the loch yourself.  The small picture postcard village of Luss sits on the banks for Loch Lomond is well worth a visit.  Balloch at the end of the loch is the home to the National Park Gateway Centre, Loch Lomond Shores and a new sea-life centre. From here you can head east further into the Trossachs.   Helensburgh lies to the west, on the banks of the Firth of Clyde and provides all the essential amenities and leisure facilities, with a great railway link to Glasgow in the south, or north to Oban/Fort William.  Helensburgh is also home to “The Hill House” designed by Charles Rennie MacKintosh, a must to visit for all architectural lovers.    Glenfruin Lodge is an ideal central location to base yourself to explore the surrounding countryside, placing you in the heart of the National Park and also giving you easy access to travel further a field in all directions.
