ACTIVITIES AROUND THE TROSSACHS
Lochend lies at the quiet southeastern corner of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, a spectacular 720-square mile pocket of loch, glen and ben centred around Loch Lomond. Not for nothing the area is known as the Highlands-in-Miniature: the park has a wild, dramatic Highland feel, but is also relatively compact. As remote as Lochend feels as you stare from your chalet across the lake, we’re actually never more than half an hour from an array of castles and distilleries, golf courses and pretty, mountain villages.
EXPLORING LOCH LOMOND & THE TROSSACHS NATIONAL PARK FROM LOCHEND CHALETS
Dominated by mountains – Trossachs means ‘ragged rock’ – the park is a fantastic landscape for walkers, horse-riders and mountain-bikers, with mile-upon-mile of mountain paths and lochside forest trails.
Not that you need break sweat to enjoy some epic mountain grandeur. There are wonderful boat trips on Loch Katrine, Loch Lomond and even on our own Lake of Menteith, while the 26-mile loop road from Callander via Port of Menteith, Aberfoyle and the Duke’s Pass – a section built so Queen Victoria could soak up the magnificent mountain views from horse-and-carriage – is heaven in a hatchback!
