The Trossachs National Park
The Trossachs lie to the east of Loch Lomond. Access to open water paddling by canoe or kayak is particularly good within the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. In particular, Loch Drunkie, Loch Achry, Loch Ard and Loch Katrine can be easily and safely reached. At Loch Katrine you can sail onboard the historic Steamship Sir Walter Scott and have the legends of the beautiful loch narrated to you by a member of the ship’s crew. The town of Callander a few miles east of Loch Katrine has many craft and woolen shops as well as the Rob Roy Centre which has an exhibition and film about the legendary local outlaw.
