Autumn in Scotland is well known for its glorious colours and dramatic sunsets. The landscape is transformed by a breathtaking explosion of colour - brown, gold, yellow and russet red - every artists’ and photographers’ dream! Enjoy strolls through the oak woodlands and pine forests as a sense of relaxation takes over the landscape. Now is the time to visit Loch Lomond as the landscape transforms.
Visit Loch Lomond
Lying on the Highland Boundary Fault, the loch is 24.5 miles (39 km) long, it is the largest freshwater loch in Scotland and has more than 30 islands, the largest of which is Inchmurrin. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs area of Scotland was awarded National Park status in July 2002. A popular leisure destination located between the lowlands of central Scotland and the Highlands. In 2005, a poll of Radio Times readers voted Loch Lomond the sixth greatest natural wonder in Britain.
Enjoy the seasonal colours of autumn and explore the diversity of landscapes in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which have inspired painters, musicians, artists and writers. In September, Scotland hosts the Ryder Cup 2014 and we invite visitors to extend their stay and visit Loch Lomond.
Escape the city and wake up in real Scotland! It's only a thirty minute drive from Glasgow and within easy reach of Stirling and Edinburgh in central Scotland.
"I have seen the Lago di Garda, Albano di Vico, Bolsena and Geneva and I prefer Loch Lomond to them all... Everything here is romantic beyond imagination" Tobias Smollett, 1771
