The hills and glens of the Trossachs and Loch Lomond are the first of the Highlands as you come from the south, and first in the affections of many hill-goers. Slightly less savage than their northern counterparts, they have a rugged charm all their own. Their ridges are wrinkly schist and grassy picnic places, their lower slopes are oakwoods, and ferries cruise the lochs inbetween.
This book suggests the most straighforward routes to each of the area’s 21 Munro summits but seeks out also the wilder ways around the back and the slightly smaller hills that this area is rich in. With their easy access, convenient shops and accommodation and good transport links, these mountains make an excellent introduction to the Scottish Highlands. From Lomond’s bonnie banks to the Hill of the Fairies here is some of Scotland’s best, and best-loved, hill country.
