Immerse yourself in Loch Lomond and Clyde Sea Lochs

Beautiful Loch Lomond sits at the heart of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, just 30 minutes from Glasgow. Its ‘bonnie, bonnie banks’ are world renowned. Take a boat trip to explore one of the loch’s 37 islands or enjoy a variety of watersports. There’s so much more to enjoy in the surrounding area, from hiking and biking to gardens bursting with colour. 

Go hill walking in the Arrochar Alps or follow one of the area’s many long-distance trails and cycle paths, from the John Muir Way to the Three Lochs Way. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Helensburgh; with broad avenues, piers, promenades, shops and eateries, it’s a great place to spend a day and is home to the fascinating Hill House.

Planning your journey

The traditional road route into Argyll and the Isles takes you along the A82 either as far as Tarbet when you can head west on the A83 over the Rest & Be Thankful or continue further north on the A82 to Crianlarich.

However, there is a lot more to discover by either following the A814 along the Clyde from
Dumbarton to Helensburgh and then following the A814 northwards to Arrochar with a
detour on the B833 to explore the stunning Rosneath peninsula.

The A817 linking Loch Lomond to Garelochhead is a stunning drive in either direction offering panoramic views to the east and west.

Or why not access this area by train and bus, or by walking the Three Lochs Way or using the cycle routes - and leave the car behind.
