Welcome to the Trossachs region of Scotland, a popular holiday and vacation area.
Tell me a little about the Trossachs
The Trossachs region encompasses a large and scenic geographic area between the Highlands and Lowland of Scotland within which can be found many lochs (lakes), forests, wildlife and mountains. Access is relatively easy from Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
Tell me more about the Trossachs region
The name is derived from the Gaelic na Trossaichean which is a small range of hillocks between Loch Katrine and Loch Achray. The area now includes the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which extends to 1,865 sq km (720 sq miles). The Park and wider region is ideal for outdoor activities and sightseeing. This was the home of 18th century Scottish legend Rob Roy.
What can I see and do in the Trossachs?
- Outdoor activities include hiking, mountain biking, water sports, canoeing, bird watching and climbing mountains such as Ben Lomond. Here is the view from summit of Ben Lomond.
