Full description

Spend a day exploring the wonderful region of the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond on a guided trip. Experience the magical landscape with 2 hikes and breathtaking views, encountering Highland cattle, and stopping in the village of Luss.

Begin on the eastern side of Loch Lomond, hiking around the water’s edge. Climb up the rolling green hills to experience breathtaking views of where the Scottish Highlands meet the Lowlands. Look out for the nature reserve Inchcailloch among the islands on the Loch. 

Depart from Loch Lomond and travel through the Trossachs National Park, watching in awe as the landscape around you transforms into clusters of wooded glens and braes. 

Go on your second hike of the day in this natural paradise. Meet the cute and friendly roaming inhabitants of the park, fluffy Highland cattle, and keep your eyes peeled for some of Scotland’s finest wildlife, like red deer, red squirrels, and even the golden eagle.

After your hike, take a spectacular drive to the northern section of the Trossachs. Find your way to picturesque waterfalls and feel like you’ve entered into the world of the fairies.

Make your last stop of the day in the historic village of Luss. Learn about the history of this place once invaded by the Vikings, before climbing up to one last viewpoint over the Trossachs National Park to say goodbye.

We had an amazing day- got to see and experience most of the national park. Our guide Derek was lovely and very knowledgeable about all sorts of things and I really enjoyed learning more about Scottish history!

This day of several hikes with Derek and the other women on the tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Scotland. Derek is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the areas we visited. We highly recommend this day trip.
