The Trossachs walks - Callander and Aberfoyle. The Trossachs are often referred to as the Highlands in miniature.

The Trossachs walks - Callander and Aberfoyle

The real beauty of the region are its richly forested lochs, with especially spectacular colours in autumn. They include Lochs Ard, Venachar, Achray and Chon, but most famous is Loch Katrine, indelibly associated with Sir Walter Scott. Scott helped to popularise the region in the nineteenth century and the Trossachs became immensely fashionable - on the itinerary of many distinguished Victorians. Today the Trossachs are as popular as ever, and the small town of Callander and village of Aberfoyle are hugely popular with visitors.

The steamship Sir Walter Scott still plies its trade along the lovely waters of Loch Katrine and the hills have become known and loved by thousands.

Le Loch Lomond - Bienvenue à Glasgow

C'est un grand lac entouré de montagnes qui a déjà des allures de paysages écossais comme on en voit sur les cartes postales. Il est très fréquenté par les Glaswegiens. Un parc naturel protège les rives du lac et les montagnes environnantes. La plupart des îles sont privées. Possibilité de faire des croisières sur le lac en bateau (pas forcément passionnant...) Depuis Glasgow, vous pouvez vous y rendre en train (destination Balloch, descendre au terminus ! Balloch est la ville principale autour du Loch Lomond. Il est possible de longer le lac depuis Balloch à l'intérieur d'un vaste parc dont l'entrée se situe sur votre gauche juste après le pont (quand vous venez de la gare - sur votre droite juste avant le pont quand vous venez de la gare routière !).
