Loch Lomond is popular for boating, water skiing and kayaking, while Loch Earn is one of Scotland’s premier watersports venues and Loch Tay offers sailing and canoeing.
Walkers and climbers are spoilt for choice. The famous West Highland Way skirts Loch Lomond’s eastern shore, Ben Lomond is one of Scotland’s most popular Munros and Ben Arthur - ‘the Cobbler’ - draws walkers and climbers. Join the Glen Ogle Trail at Lochearnhead, take to the Ochil Hills or explore the Drymen Paths, a series of routes for walkers and cyclists.
As far as cycling goes, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park has Britain’s largest off-road cycle network and is great for families. The Devon Way is a quiet cycleway through Clackmannanshire and if you want something more challenging head for the Carron Valley Mountain Bike Trails.
For fishing, the River Leven is one of Scotland's most renowned salmon and trout fishing rivers and the rivers Teith, Devon, Allan and Forth are also good. Try fly fishing on the Lake of Menteith or go boat fishing at Lochearnhead. Queen Elizabeth Forest Park has a number of brown trout lochs.
Golfers can experience the joys of the Carrick course at Loch Lomond, while the Trossachs has plenty of picturesque venues. The closing hole at Killin is one of the most beautiful in Scotland.
