There are many things to do in Loch Lomond, making it a popular weekend getaway for locals from Glasgow and Edinburgh looking for outdoor and natural activities. In 2002, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs became Scotland's first national park.
If you're in Glasgow or Edinburgh and looking for breathtaking scenery or outdoor activities, think about taking a day trip to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. We'll highlight our top Loch Lomond attractions and provide travel guidance based on our individual experiences.
On the other hand, off-season hiking or cycling may be a great way to enjoy the outdoors without the crowds, and many people enjoy viewing the wintertime landscapes that are covered in snow. There are festivals and special events all throughout the year, and Scotland celebrates the holidays at Christmas and Hogmanay (New Year's).


Anyone looking for a peaceful lochside stroll or a difficult multi-day excursion can find it at Loch Lomond. This area is traversed by several of Scotland's most well-known hiking trails, as well as the long-distance routes West Highland Way, Rob Roy Way, and The Three Lochs Way.
Because Loch Lomond & The Trossoachs National Park comprises 22 lochs and 39 miles of shoreline centered on three Clyde sea lochs, it’s no wonder that many visitors come to spend some time on or near the water. Aside from the previously mentioned tourist boat trips, the region offers fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, diving, windsurfing, boating, seaplane rides, and even river sledging on occasion.
