This week marks the beginning of National Parks Week. This is National Parks family’s annual celebration of everything that is unique and wonderful about our 15 National Parks across the UK. Here in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park we are spoilt for choice in terms of stunning Scottish scenery.
There are many things to do in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, which is a hot pick destination for both tourists and Scottish locals from the likes of Glasgow and Edinburgh in pursuit of beautiful nature and outdoor activities. Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park was Scotland’s first national park, designated in 2002. Loch Lomond is the largest inland stretch of water in Great Britain by surface area, and the park contains 21 Munros, otherwise known as Scottish mountains, two forest parks, 22 lochs, and over 50 designated special nature conservation sites that are home to a variety of wildlife.
Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is a stunning spot to visit all year round. If you love water related activities, campsites, and boat cruises, then Summer is a fantastic time to come. The most popular time to visit is between April and October as there is warmer weather, longer daylight hours, and more attractions are open.
However, the national park is also magical in the winter and if you are seeking peace and tranquillity then this could be the perfect time to come. We love to see the snow-covered landscape in the winter and of course, it is extremely comforting sitting by our open fire in Gartmore House and looking out over the views.
Wherever you spend this week, we hope you enjoy some wonderful views.
