This all inclusive guided walking tour through the very heart of the Trossachs, 3 great days walking with a little history along the way. Pick up and dropped off at Stirling train station. We walk, talk and feed you all the way!

This Guided Tour taking you through the heart of the Trossachs over 3 days. The Three Loch walk is a 3 day All Inclusive Guided Tour, with camping for one night at Inversnaid (accommodation upgrade available) and a luxury stay at Balmaha for the second night. We provide two breakfasts (no breakfast on day 1) 3 dinners and 3 packed lunches. This walk starts from Loch Katrine pier and ends at Tarbet, taking you through the lands of the MacGregors as well as other Clans and along with the scenery it makes it more than just a walk. Starting from Loch Katrine pier at 9.30am to Inversnaid bunkhouse where the stunning scenery along the way will please your eyes I'm sure, with the passing of two lochs, a MacGregor island cemetery, Rob Roy's birth place and with the likes of Ben A'an, Ben Venue, the Arrochar Alps and Ben Lomond in view, it certainly doesn't disappoint! Stopping along the way through these MacGregor lands for a few breaks, a bite to eat, a wee cup of tea, rest the feet (of course) taking in the surroundings and the peacefulness of it all will leave you with great memories! Reaching Loch Arklet you can still see Loch Katrine and Ben A'an in the distance which was the starting point of the today's walk. Loch Arklet only takes around 2 hours to walk where the Arrochar Alps are absoultely stunning! This brings us past the garrison of Inversnaid to Inversnaid's bunkhouse, where you feel the comfort inside the old church, with great music and great people. The walk will take around 8-9 hours to do, but it's well worth it. Day two - Inversaid to Balmaha which will take around 7-8 hours to reach Balmaha. Walking by Loch Lomond on the West Highland Way going south is stunning, especially if you have the time to relax along the way and we will! With so many great spots to relax to get a few pictures as we have lunch at around the halfway point. Reaching Balmaha we will have dinner at the Oak Tree Inn which will also be our place to rest for the night, a little luxury! The last day to Tarbet will be a little more relaxing on the feet, once we've had our breakfast at the Oak Tree Inn, we will head over to Luss via the waterbus at 10.45, arriving at Luss for 11.30, here we can have a visit around the village of Luss or a walk over the bridge to Glen Luss for a good hour or so. 12.30-13.00 we head North towards Tarbet taking us around 3 hours with a tea break along the way as we look over the Loch towards Ben Lomond. On arrival our dinner will be served on the Bonnie Bonnie banks of Loch Lomond itself as we sit in an air shelter away from the fearsome midge with some great views as you eat. With dinner all done and settled it's one last jounrney as we head to the battle site of Glen Fruin in the van just before we head home I'm afraid, where we will drop you off the starting point at Stirling train station.
