Things to do in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park


Loch Lomond and the Trossachs is one of Scotland’s two national parks and located on the west of Scotland. With pine forests, smooth, sweeping roads and plenty of loch views it's a beautiful place to explore with my fave picks below:


📍Dukes Pass

An awesome drive through the Trossachs starting at Aberfoyle with stunning scenery and some serious climbs! Finishing at Loch Achray which might be my fave loch, for it's peaceful nature. This is said to be one of the best driving routes in the UK.

 

📍Three Lakes Drive

This 7 mile driving loop takes you on a scenic drive of Lochan Reoidhte, Loch Drunkie and Loch Achray south side and is super quiet (go early in the morning to avoid the crowds)


 

📍Loch Lomond

The East coast of Loch Lomond was by far the best - quieter and where the locals go. We drove up as far as Ben Lomond and even went for a dip at this scenic spot. In summer months it's a great little place to go out on a paddle board or kayak.


 

About driving in the Highlands:


Driving in the Highlands was not what I expected!


First of all, most roads are small A-roads with a single lane each way. Put a camper or nervous driver in the mix and before you know it you’re stuck behind them for miles. The roads are anything but straight so opportunities to overtake are slim. Patience is needed!


The roads very much line the coast and lochs, there's no quick or direct route from A to B so strap in and enjoy the views as you drive.
