Ben A'an - Hiking Day Trip in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
Private Day Tour from Glasgow
Guided Walking Tour for private groups up to 8 persons

A perfect day trip outdoors! Less than an hour’s drive from Glasgow Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park offer you a quintessential experience of Highland landscapes complete with forests, lakes, streams and steep, rugged hills. Hiking up the ancient volcano Ben A’an gives you a stunning bird’s-eye view across the mountainous world complete with Scotland’s famous ‘lochs and glens’. 

Following your hike, we’ll visit the very lake you will have looked down on from the top of the Ben – Loch Katrine. Here you can take some time to enjoy the beauty of this romantic lake taking an easy amble  along its shores.

Alternatively, you may be tempted by a boat cruise or a cycle ride (not included in price). 

Other suitable options to add to your hike can be a visit to medieval Doune Castle and/ or our local whisky distillery at Dumgoyne (not included in price).
Please contact us to discuss these options before making your booking.

Did you know? Loch Katrine is the scene that the 19th century writer Walter Scott chose for his famous ballad ‘Lady of the Lake’. Once there you can see why …
