Things to See & Do

Discover Helensburgh & Loch Lomond

Beautiful Loch Lomond sits at the heart of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, just 30 minutes from Glasgow. The surrounding area offers brilliant walking and climbing, from gentle woodland strolls to epic hill walks. Go hill walking in the Arrochar Alps, discover the woodland trails at Ardgarten or follow one of the area’s many long-distance trails and cycle paths, including the John Muir Way, Three Lochs Way and Clyde Sea Lochs Trail. 

But Loch Lomond is also a hot spot for watersports, including kayaking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. You can hope on board a waterbus to discover the villages, islands and beauty spots of Loch Lomond. A number of operators offer scheduled waterbus services. Another way to experience the magic of Loch Lomond from the water is with a tailored cruise. A number of companies offer cruises and excursions, including trips to the islands.
