Loch Lomond Shores Walk
This may only be a short walk, starting from the Loch Lomond Shores shopping complex, but it enjoys some beautiful views out over the lake. It’s also great for families, with the path suitable for baby buggies and some wheelchairs. 0.75 miles long.
It may not be the largest but Inchcailloch is the most accessible and probably the most beautiful, of Loch Lomond's islands. The island boasts glorious wonderlands and offers stunning views out over the loch. The walk is fairly straightforward along woodland paths with some steps and ascent. 2 miles long.
Conic Hill, Balmaha
This sharp summit rises above Balmaha and is located right on the Highland Boundary Fault. This short hillwalk offers truly fantastic views over Loch Lomond and its many islands. The path here is good with some steps although the detour from the West Highland Way up to the summit involves a short rocky scramble. 2.5 miles long
Beinn Dubh - Glen Striddle Horseshoe, Luss
Looking for somewhere with spectacular views and want more of a challenge? The circuit of the hills above Glen Straddle makes an excellent short hillwalk. The ascent up the grassy ridge rising from Luss is a delight and the views over Loch Lomond and towards the Arrochar Alps are superb. 7.2 miles long
One of the regions’ most popular Munros, Ben Lomond is climbed by some 30,000 people who make it to the top each year – and boasts fantastic views of the length of Loch Lomond and far into the hills to the north and the Trossachs to the east. The route has been well made, however the optional return down the Ptarmigan ridge can be muddy and is rocky in places making the going more difficult in poor visibility. Please be aware that you will need full hillwalking clothing and equipment to tackle this walk – including an ice-axe and crampons if there is snow! 7.5 miles long
