Looking across Loch Lomond and her Islands towards Conic Hill from the Western Shore

We love Loch Lomond and the Trossachs very much, so thought we'd break it down into some interesting numbers for you.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs in Numbers

There is 1 Highland boundary fault line cutting through the centre of the National park.  This helped create the spectacular scenery and shape the land to what you see today.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has within it, 2 Forest parks which are, Argyll Forest Park and the Queen Elizabeth Forest park. Both really great locations for a day out.
