With over 720 sq miles of National Park to explore, you might need some help planning what to do when you get here. Below is some useful information about some of the most popular land based activities in the National Park.
Enjoy Scotland’s outdoors! Everyone has the right to be on most land and inland water for recreation, education and for going from place to place providing they act responsibly. These access rights and responsibilities are explained in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park has many recreational opportunities away from the road network. If you get into difficulty in these areas and require help/medical assistance, please follow this procedure:
- Phone the emergency services on 999.
- When the operator asks which service state: Police.
- Provide accurate details of the incident and location (grid references are very useful) - it is important to emphasise the remote location and difficult access.
- Answer any other questions which the Police Service asks.
The Police Service will assess the situation and send help – this may include a Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) and other medical support.
