Because we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country, I’ve decided to start a new series of posts titled, Snippets from Scotland starting with a lovely visit to Loch Katrine.
Loch Katrine is based in the heart of the Loch Lommond and The Trossachs National Park and less than an hour away from where we live so a perfect place to head to for a great walk.
You can take a boat trip across the loch on one of their one or two hour boat trips either on the old steamer boat or the cruiser. We have never done the boat trip but if the views from shore are anything to go by, it looks like it would be a gorgeous trip.
When we visit it’s for the lovely loch side walk which is just perfect for tiring out the excitable doggy. You can hire bikes from the pier as well but a word of warning is that there are plenty of steep inclines as you make your way around.
It is debatable how far this walk actually is, given that there is no phone signal round here, never mind a 3G signal we had no way of tracking it properly and I would have to say that we did disagree with the one sign we actually did find! Our tracker on the health app on the iPhone had it at just over 5 miles though it felt like so much more with the hills!
It is worth the walk for these views though!
