Loch Lomond

Glasgow is never more than 30 minutes from stunning countryside and heading north leads you through the Clyde Valley to the splendour of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. In this beautifully-dressed region are eye-catching glens, deafening waterfalls, nostalgic castles, shadow-filled abbeys, towering mountains and awe-inspiring views. Ben Lomond stands guard over Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain and the romantic centrepiece of the National Park.
