Exploring beyond the hills of Loch Lomond we have included a cultural program of visits: the medieval city of Stirling and its famous castle, Loch Katrine, beautiful backdrop to Walter Scott's legend 'Lady of the Lake' and the 18th century town Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne and its magnificent castle of the Dukes of Argyll, chiefs of the Campbell Clan. And, of course, a visit to Glengoyne Distillery for a taste of whiskey.
On the way, you can find out as much as you would like about Scottish wildlife, history and nature, about wild goats with spectacular horns, stories of local clans and their warfare or the story behind the coppiced oak forests along the shores of Loch Lomond and the people who lived in these forests not so long ago.
Generally, a day includes about 3-5 hours walking, a relaxing and delicious picnic lunch and, because water is so much part of the scenery, a boat ride along the way and sometimes even a little island exploration (on Loch Lomond)or, back on land! a cycle ride.
