Trains to Loch Lomond
Taking the train to Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park is a great option for visitors wanting to help maintain the area’s outstanding natural beauty while enjoying the views on the way. Regular services go from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Balloch in the south, with bus connections to the Trossachs. The West Highland Line travels through the park heading for Fort William, with stops at Arrochar & Tarbet for the Argyll Forest and Upper Tyndrum for the Breadalbane area.
About Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park was Scotland’s first, established in 2002. It’s the fourth biggest in the British Isles and covers around 720 square miles of varied landscapes, from the beautiful rolling lowlands to the high dramatic mountains, encompassing lochs, rivers, glens and forests in between. Half of Scotland’s population can get to the national park within an hour and many come to visit the park’s namesake and largest body of freshwater in Britain, Loch Lomond. Its beauty and romance has been captured in song, and the loch and its villages, islands and mountains are worthy of a trip all of their own. But don’t miss out on the Trossachs, known as ‘Rob Roy Country’ for their connection with the famous outlaw, or Breadalbane up at the north end of the park, where the Highlands begin.
Alongside the stunning natural landscapes, the wildlife in this part of the world is also a big draw for visitors. Red squirrels, otters, ospreys, water voles, deer and capercaillie – the world's largest grouse species – all make their homes in the unique habitats of the national park. When you’ve finished exploring, head to any of the wonderful pubs and tuck in to some neeps and tatties.
