Great UK Winter Walks

Great UK Winter Walks.

If the countryside is not snowed under, this article of travel tips is a recommended read. Although the article reviewed twelve country walks, we will just explore Loch Lomond’s eastern banks (see more details below). You can visit the east shore of Loch Lomond all year round. There are parking, information, a play area, toilets, and picnic tables at the Balmaha Visitor Centre, which is operated by Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. It is open from Easter to October. Start exploring East Loch Lomond from Balmaha. The village is on the B837, 4 miles (6.5km) north-west of Drymen. You’ll also find a range of refreshments and be shopping at Balmaha. The nearest railway station is at Balloch. There is a frequent bus service to Balmaha from Balloch, via Drymen. You’ll find details at Traveline Scotland. There’s plenty of other places to explore across Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, whether you’re here just for the day or on holiday. An excellent place to start is The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre near Aberfoyle, where you can find out all about the Forest Park (and relax in a café with one of the best views in Scotland!).
