The northern part of Stirlingshire, including the Trossachs, has long been viewed as the day-trip destination by those living in the northern half of Glasgow.
Families would pile into cars on a Sunday and drive to Callander,  Doune and the Trossachs for afternoon tea and a wander round the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park or Loch Katrine.
It is no less popular a destination today, being part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is now also a mecca for walkers heading up the hills surrounding Loch Lomond’s eastern shore, like Ben Ledi and Ben Lomond.

There are many beautiful lochs to explore, including the only lake in Scotland, the Lake of Monteith, with its ancient ruin, the monastery Inchmahome Priory which served as a refuge to Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1547 when she was just four years old.

Explore Scotland’s past and some of its beautiful lochs with our hand-drawn map of Stirlingshire North.

North Skye includes the town of Portree, which features in many a Scottish and Gaelic song, and is just a short hop from the Old Man of Storr and the island of Raasay.

Western Isles

The Western Isles or Outer Hebrides should be on everyone’s ‘100 places to visit in a lifetime’, with some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland, beautiful deserted beaches, blue seas, a wealth of  history, amazing wildlife and a cultural heritage second to none.

Thanks to investment in road and ferry links it is possible to now travel from one end of the Western Isles to the other without having to go back to the mainland first.

From the tiny island of Vatersay, slow to the Western Isles pace of life as you journey over the causeway through Barra to catch the ferry to South Uist, amble through the Uists and Benbecula and sail to Bernary and there to Lewis and Harris.

On the way, take a boat trip to see the wildlife – dolphins, porpoises, seals, whales,  rare birds –   pick up some hand crafted luxurious gifts, explore the castles and ruins, photograph the stunning wildflowers of the machair, soak in the atmosphere, take in a ceilidh and sample some true hospitality.

Loch Lomond North

Loch Lomond is part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and one of the most spectacular, best known and popular lochs in Scotland.

The main route into the West Highlands runs alongside the loch, where there are ample opportunities to stop and admire the views, have a cup of tea and drink in the scenery at Tarbet, Inveruglas, Ardlui or Inverarnan. To fully appreciate the many attractions, walks, glens and the cylce path stay a few days at the many hotels, caravan parks and bed and breakfasts in the area.

The loch narrows as it reaches its northern most point, and the road continues to Crainlarich.

Keeping to the main road through Tarbet leads you towards Mid Argyll but take time to stop in Arrochar, where the first taste of the pace of Highland life will strike you as you unwind along the shores of Loch Long.
