Hotels in Dumbarton
Once a busy industrial centre, Dumbarton is now a popular base for day trips to Glasgow and the wonderful scenery of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, one of the most breathtaking national parks in the country.
The town, which is still the headquarters of BBC Scotland, has been an area of human habitation since at least the Iron Age, and was known for its very successful shipbuilding industry by the Industrial Revolution.
Overlooked by the dramatic Dumbarton Rock, Dumbarton Castle is an intriguing medieval landmark that was a strategic defence until just after the English Civil War. However, this site was probably inhabited in the Roman era and was the capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde, which lasted for more than 600 years until 1093 AD.
The Scottish Maritime Museum
One of Scotland's principal exhibition venues, the Scottish Maritime Museum showcases the country's illustrious maritime past and is housed in the Denny Ship Model Experiment Tank. The venue also exhibits the history of the entrepreneurial shipbuilding company William Denny and Brothers, which built many of Britain's most famous ships and was in operation from 1840 to 1963.
Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park
Witness the phenomenal panoramic views over the vast freshwater lake of Loch Lomond, which features Inchmurrin Island, Britain's largest lake island. Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, which was created in 2002, also contain the dramatic wilderness of the Argyll Forest Park and part of the famous walking route known as the West Highland Way.
