If you’re looking to do some cycling but don’t fancy riding all the way, there are some public transport services that can help you.
On both Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine, cruise operators provide shore-to-shore waterbus journeys as well as cruises, allowing you to combine your cycling trip with a bit of loch cruising.
From Tarbet on the A82, you can take the waterbus to Inversnaid and cycle along Loch Arklet up to Loch Katrine. Or from Balloch, you can combine the waterbus to and from Luss with cycling along the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path.
Between the months of May and October, a minibus with bike trailer service operates between Balloch and Ardgartan. The bus stops at points en route such as Lomond Shores, Luss, Tarbet and Arrochar, giving cyclists the chance to combine rides like the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path or three forest track circuits at Ardgartan.

Also running between the months of May and October, the Ring of Breadalbane Explorer minibus with bike trailer runs a hop-on, hop-off circular service between Killin in the NE of the Park and Crieff, with stops at Comrie, St Fillans, Lochearnhead, Kenmore and Aberfeldy.
