This book details 60 varied walks to the west of Loch Lomond from Balloch and Luss to Tarbert and Arrochar, Lochgoilhead, Cowal, Inveruglas and Inverarnan and extending north to Crianlarich and Tyndrum. This is the first and most comprehensive walkers' guidebook to cover the entire 1865 sq km sized Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park; an area within an hours' reach of 70 per cent of Scotland's population and also readily accessible to those travelling from further afield, as well as a popular short break and holiday destination. This title is ideal for both the first time visitor and those seeking to fully explore this wonderful area. As well as covering popular walks there are also many walks that have never been described before. This title is image driven and well illustrated with detailed maps of each walk and more than 200 inspirational colour photographs. It features user friendly size and format with tourist information, fauna & flora identification and a glossary of gaelic and scots hill and place names. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park: West v. 1: 60 Walks.

The beautiful region which contains Loch Lomond and the Trossachs has long been a magnet for visitors. It was already popular when Sir Walter Scott made it world-famous. Here are the stories of the people who came to it, why they came, how they travelled and what they found. Most visitors came as tourists: they included Wordsworth, Mendelssohn, Hans Andersen, even Queen Victoria herself. Others came in the course of their work: sixth-century saints brought Christianity, redcoats - and sailors - pursued Rob Roy, politicians and engineers came to revive the fortunes of Scotland with hydro-electricity after the Second World War. The region is notable for variety in means of travel. Tourists a century ago found an intricate network of connecting trains, steamers and horse-drawn coaches, by which they could range about the region with greater facility than their descendants can today. This too is fully described. The story of how Loch Lomond and the fast-flowing River Leven were used as a highway for trade and commerce, by galleys, birlinns, sailing gabbarts and, on the loch, paddle-steamers, is told more comprehensively here than anywhere else.
