You’ve taken in the mountains, the glorious views of Loch Lomond from Cashel, or enjoyed the peaceful ambience of a morning at Cobleland. Now you’re ready to tackle the day’s activities feeling refreshed and most definitely disconnected from everyday life. Don’t hang around for too long, though, because there are plenty of things to do in Loch Lomond and Queen Elizabeth Forest, and relaxing, however peacefully, won’t get them done! Oh go on then, take another ten if you must…

When you do eventually get up, you have plenty things to choose from. Climb an iceberg, master an assault course, soar on a trampoline and do other unexpected things at Go Country’s Loch Ard Water Park – something you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. If you don’t want to test the water, try climbing, abseiling, gorge walking, clay pigeon shooting and more.

For something slightly less extreme things to do in Loch Lomond, try taking in some of the incredible forest and mountain views afforded by the many miles of walking and cycling routes. Pick a path and follow it to be taken through Queen Elizabeth or Loch Ard Forest, around Loch Lomond or over Ben Lomond, its mountainous counterpart.

When you’ve done all that, take a notch off and enjoy a leisurely shop at Loch Lomond Shores, sitting on, you guessed it, the shore of Loch Lomond at Balloch. A beautiful place to shop, this is the perfect way to while away the afternoon.
