Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park
Filled with mountains, forests, rivers and glens, plus more than 30 islands on the loch, the national park is nature at its loveliest. Walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders have a myriad of routes to choose from. The West Highland Way links Glasgow and Ben Nevis and runs along the eastern shore of the loch, while the John Muir Way links the park to Dunbar. Cycle routes range from family-friendly tarmac routes and forest tracks to hardcore terrain for mountain bikers. There are also plenty of opportunities for canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, waterskiing and fishing, as well as a nine-hole parkland course at Loch Lomond Golf Club. The park is home to array of wildlife, including otters, red squirrels and deer, and birds including capercaillie, osprey and black grouse.
The SEA LIFE Loch Lomond Aquarium houses more than 5,000 creatures, including seahorses, octopuses, rays, Scotland's largest collection of sharks and the country's only giant green sea turtle. You can touch crabs and starfish in the rock pool and see the animals being fed. The Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre is home to more than 30 birds of prey, including owls, kestrels, falcons and eagles.
The pretty, whitewashed Glengoyne Distillery prides itself on being the slowest distillery in Scotland – its oak casks are prepared over six years. You can tour the premises, sample a dram, learn about the art of whisky blending and even blend a bottle of your own creation to take home.
At the Scottish Maritime Museum in Dumbarton, you can learn about the history of shipbuilding and the people behind the William Denny and Brothers shipyard, the world-renowned Victorian shipbuilding company. The company reputedly built more boats than any other Clyde shipyard, including the Cutty Sark. Kids get in free at the museum, which has been awarded a four-star rating by Visit Scotland.
Eating and drinking
The Michelin-starred Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond restaurant at Alexandria is the place to go for fine dining. A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, the restaurant offers a six or eight-course tasting menu at dinner – both have a vegetarian version – or an à la carte lunch menu. Tuck into tapas and paella at another Certificate of Excellence winner, La Barca, in Helensburgh, named best Scottish Mediterranean restaurant at the Scottish Entertainment Awards in 2014. Both chefs and waiters are Spanish, and there's Mediterranean décor, a boat-shaped bar and a mural of a harbour scene. For an Indian, head to Annaya's Grillhouse, also in Helensburgh, which doubles as an ice cream parlour. There are plenty of non-Indian options for anyone who doesn't like curry.
