The Great Trossachs Path is a 30-mile long route running between Callander in the east to Inversnaid and Loch Lomond in the west, and also passing through Brig o’ Turk, the Loch Katrine area and Stronachlachar. The path connects the Rob Roy Way with the West Highland Way and also links to the Three Lochs Way, so long-distance walkers will now be able to undertake an extraordinary journey across the centre of Scotland. But it’s also accessible to cyclists (connecting, among others, with the NCN7), and has numerous smaller walks, which should appeal to families, or those just looking for an amazing place to take a weekend stroll.
Embedded in heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, The Great Trossachs Path has short, long and circular routes of various lengths and challenges. These trails are a series of loop walks each with its own unique character and beauty – from lochside paths, woodland trails to hilltop vistas. The Great Trossachs Path has it all, as the Trossachs is within an hours drive for 80% of Scotland’s population.
A new Great Trossachs Forest App is available giving smart phone users a wealth of information about the area’s wildlife, geography and history.
