Outlander Comes to Loch Katrine

After being sworn to secrecy, we can now reveal that Brenachoile Point was used as a location for Outlander series 2, episode 13.  We’re not surprised, considering the view you get from the point over the Arrochar Alps and Ben Venue – but we are a bit biased – come to Loch Katrine and see for yourselves!   This handy PDF from our chums at VisitScotland gives you a bit more detail on all the Scottish locations.

Cycling at Loch Katrine

Cycling on the north shore of the loch has proven to be a very popular activity, so much so that Scotland’s Mountains (@steamingboots on Twitter) took a break from walking to shoot this video showing the route from Trossachs Pier all the way to Inversnaid. Why not follow on thier cycle tracks or if thats too far take the Steamship Sir Walter Scott one way and cycle back! There is ample parking and toilets in our car park. Great work

Beautiful Loch Katrine

Loch Katrine and the Trossachs National Park looks different every day at this time of year. The sunlight hitting the hills lets you see things you might not see when all the leaves are on the trees.  Birch trees look purple and bare.  Every time you look there is a different view. Worth dropping by for a walk or cruise on the Lady of the Lake.
