WALKING LOCH LOMOND AND THE TROSSACHS
By Ronald Turnbull
Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Scotland’s first National Park, is beautiful, accessible, wild and yet familiar, – all the ingredients needed for some fantastic mountain days.
Slightly less savage than its northern counterparts, the landscape of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has a rugged charm. The ridges are wrinkly schist and grassy picnic places, the lower slopes are oakwoods and ferries cruise the lochs in between.
The park is the fourth largest in the British Isles, and includes 21 Munros (including Ben Lomond, Ben Lui, Beinn Challuim, Ben More and two peaks called Ben Vorlich), 20 Corbetts, two forest parks and 57 designated special nature conservation sites.
