The Trossachs

When it comes to The Trossachs, Gaelic for “bristly territory”, you’re spoilt for choice. History, nature, adventure and culture are all booming in this beautiful Scottish location.

Steeped in national heritage and history, the Trossachs is home to some of the most influential and quintessentially Scottish icons of all time such as Rob Roy MacGregor and Sir Walter Scott.

Renowned for its amazing outdoor activities and landscape, the best way to see The Trossachs is by getting out there – on foot, by bike, or via the Loch.

Get on your bikes – The ‘School House Cycle’ is a family friendly trail that follows the stunning views across Loch Katrine and the surrounding hills such as Ben A’an and Ben Venue. The trail itself is 0.5 miles and can be combined with a cycle from Trossachs Pier or Stronachlachar, the perfect way to enjoy a family afternoon out at Loch Katrine. The Trossachs has a great variety of cycle routes; from flat tarmac routes and wide forest tracks, to hard-core trails and challenging terrain for mountain bikes.

With close links to Loch Lomond and neighbouring tourist favourites such as Luss and Balloch, The Trossachs serve as a great starting point for your Loch Katrine Experience and exploration of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
