From the shore of Loch Long to the summit of Ben More, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is a land of diversity that offers striking contrasts between the rolling lowlands in the south and the rugged highlands in the north. Glaciers have carved its glens, water has filled its lochs and rivers and greened its forests and fields, and people have given colour and character to its countryside. Four great Scottish rivers - the Forth, the Clyde, the Tay and the Teith - are fed by its water; innumerable lochs, lochans and burns flow across the country and are home to rare freshwater fish and plants. Trees swathe its land, including remnants of ancient Caledonian pinewood and lush, mossy oakwoods and in its heart a new forest is being created that will grow into the largest native woodland in Europe. Ancient pre-historic sites, shielings and abandoned townships lie scattered across its now empty landscape, where druids and saints, kings and queens, crofters and clansman, writers and artists, climbers and walkers have all been inspired by this place. This rich mosaic of history and nature is the backdrop against which we come to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park today. Its scenic beauty, wildlife and local culture offer recreation, tranquillity, remoteness, enjoyment and relaxation. This practical guide to Scotland's first national park will help to you to discover it all.
