south of Loch Lomond to Tarbet in the fjord-like north. This flat cycle route is 14.5 miles
long, and is mostly off-road. The 4Bs bus with bike trailer means you can take the bus
to Tarbet, then cycle the return route one-way, giving you more time to have a relaxing
day out, take in the amazing scenery, and spend some time in the beautiful conservation
village of Luss.

height of 3,194 feet. Enjoy spectacular views from the summit of this famous mountain
which towers over the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. This is a strenuous hike, and

shore. Enjoy a one-way leisurely 8 mile walk enjoying stunning views across the Loch
