Things To Do

There is an abundance of things to do in the Arrochar, Loch Long and Loch Lomond area. You will quite simply never get bored. More information on lots of activities can be found from pages on the drop down menu.

The perfect base for touring, head west to Dunoon, Inveraray, Oban and the West Highlands, or take the opposite direction to Callander, Aberfoyle, Stirling and the Trossachs. Take the seaplane to Skye. Or take the train northwards through Glencoe to Fort William or Mallaig on the scenic West Highland Railway Line.

For walking and climbing, the area is second to none. Perfect dog walks in the local vicinity and walks for all ages and abilities abound. The Arrochar Alps include four Munros (mountains over 3000 ft), as well as the famous Cobbler, ideal for the more adventurous hill walker.

Mountain bike routes in the Argyll Forest Park are easily accessible, while low level bike rides along Loch Lomondside suit all ages. The area is renowned for road cycling.

Arrange a guided canoe safari on Loch Lomond; take a cruise on Loch Lomond; hire a mountain bike and explore the Argyll Forest Park; stalk red deer stags; go pony trekking; play golf; go fishing; enjoy a spa day at the Carrick on Loch Lomond, or visit one of the many visitor attractions in the area.

Right on the doorstep is Mansefield Studios, contemporary craft gallery, which showcases the work of independent Scottish designers and makers: Harris Tweed homeware, lambswool knitwear, textiles, pottery and jewellery. So if a shopping spree is what you are after, you won’t need to go far.

…alternatively stay in, sit in front of the fire and take in the truly beautiful views.
