There are miles of scenic walks, cycle routes and picnic spots for you to explore from your front door as well numerous Munros to climb, in the most beautiful area of unspoilt countryside and mountains. Nearby Loch Ard offers water sports including sailing, kayaking, and is a popular location for swimming. If you prefer a less strenuous way to admire the area, the forest drive is a good way to see the lochs and forest or a cruise on the historic steam boat SS Sir Walter Scott on Loch Katrine which has various events including Jazz, firework display and pirate cruises. For days out there are local distilleries, historic monuments and castles and for fans of the epic series Outlander, there are lots of opportunities to see where they were filmed including Doune Castle nearby.

About the local area

Loch Lomond is the single biggest expanse of inland water in the British Isles. The broad island-dotted shallows in the south gradually narrow into deeper water surrounded by steep sided mountains dominated by Ben Lomond. The loch is ideal for sailing and water-sports and there are some beautiful walks.

Talk a gentle stroll through Queen Elizabeth Forest Park or Balloch Castle Country Park and visit charming lochside villages and sandy bays. There really is something for everyone. If hill walking, cycling, boating, golf, wildlife watching, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing or mountain biking are your thing then this is THE place to go!

Nearby to the north is The Trossachs National Park, with heather-clad peaks known as `The Highlands in Minature'. This place includes the Crainlairch and Ben Lawers mountain ranges, which are amongst the highest in Scotland. A true haven for keen walkers and hikers. For more relaxing activities visit one of the many historic buildings in the area or take a guided bush craft tour, try bird watching, or do a spot of retail therapy. The Trossachs is a wonderful area to visit and no trip to Scotland would be complete without spending some time in the area.
