The final leg of our Scottish Road trip had us right in the centre of the Trossachs National Park. Keen to make the most of the area we set off no matter what weather to discover as much as we could in the two days we were there. When dog walking in the Trossachs you really are spoilt for choice, with a whole array of terrain to cover, there is something for everyone.
Here are our favourite walks and swimming stops, I have selected something for everyone – With lots of water for those little monsters!
We were lucky enough to be staying right on the waterfront of the gorgeous Loch Earn, a gorgeous fresh water loch. Most popular for water sports the loch has a number of footpaths around it, where you can make the most of the beautiful views.
Anything water related is a highlight for Alfie, there is nothing he loves more than splashing through the icy waters. Be sure to take a walk around the loch side or if you are feeling a little more adventurous you can tackle Ben Vorlich giving you some spectacular views.
Little Druim Wood
Set in Glen Finagles, a nature reserve in the heart of the Trossachs you will find Little Druim Wood. Little Druim Wood is nestled amongst the ancient woodland, you will find a family friendly trail. Suitable for everyone you can take a walk through the most gorgeous woodland learning all about it as you go.
There is something about a new woodland to discover that gets Alfie on his toes, he sets off as fast as his little paws can carry him – Taking in all the new sights and smells.
Our stop at Loch Lubnaig wasn’t a stop I had initially planned, but after driving along the waterside how can anyone just drive past? It was just gorgeous! Loch Lubnaig is a small loch, with some great fishing [if that’s what you enjoy!], and some beautiful views. If you are feeling adventurous you could even hire a canoe and set off exploring.
Alfie hadn’t even dried fully from his previous swim, he dived straight in. Running up and down the bank in complete happiness – That’s what makes our adventures even more special! Watching Alfie enjoy every single minute.
Lennach forestry circuit gives you some incredible views over the centre of the Trossachs. Without having to climb a mountain to see them! Take a walk along these winding tracks to see gorgeous mountain ranges, with it’s lochs and tree-clad hills. The route itself is around 5 miles, so pack a picnic and enjoy!
Have you been to explore the Trossachs with your dog? We would love to know your favourite walks. Ready for our next trip, as I’m sure we will be back in no time.
I have completely fallen for Scotland and it’s beautiful scenery.
