Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park covers 720 square miles and is made up of four distinctive landscapes: Loch Lomond and its surrounding peaks, Argyll Forest,The Trossachs, and historic Breadalbane. It touches the shores of no fewer than 18 lochs, contains Scotland’s only lake, and has 27 mountains exceeding 3000 feet.
Lying barely half an hour from Glasgow by car, the very fact that we can speak of a 'wilderness' area is a testament to the many years of effort which have gone into preserving this staggeringly beautiful landscape, even before it was designated as Scotland's first National Park. It could be argued, indeed, that this breath-taking scenery is not wilderness. It is paradise.
