Scotland's Great Trails

Traditionally traversed from Portavadie in the south to Inveruglas on the shores of Loch Lomond, the last section of the route from Lochgoilhead via Arrochar to Inveruglas passes into Helensburgh and Lomond district.

Over 90% of the route is suitable for mountain bikes, and the path reaches a height of 500m. The route covers varied terrain, including coastline, forest tracks and open hillside, with stunning views, abundant wildlife and historic sites. It has been described as ‘Scotland in 57 miles‘!

At the northern end of the route, travellers can join up with the Three Lochs Way at Arrochar, or get the ferry across Loch Lomond to join the West Highland Way. From Portavadie in the south there is also a link to The Kintyre Way
