Autumn in Scotland is well known for its glorious colours and dramatic sunsets. The landscape is transformed by a breathtaking explosion of colours - brown, gold, yellow and russet red. Enjoy strolls through the oak woodlands and pine forests as a sense of relaxation takes over the landscape. This year, the Autumn Equinox in the northern hemisphere will fall on Tuesday 22nd September, resulting in a night and day that are as long as each other. Renowned for its incredible beauty and tranquility, there is no better place to enjoy a staycation or day trip, than by the bonnie banks. The communities and businesses of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park welcome visitors back safely.
