“Conic Hill has fabulous views over Loch Lomond and, even though the track is a bit steep in places, it's an easier walk than Ben Lomond. Depart from Balmaha on the east side of the Loch.”

Park
“An iconic part of Scotland. A must-see but perhaps avoided on weekends or public holidays. Rather opt for Loch Katrine which is in the Trossachs, the other national park.”
