Guidebook to over 70 walking routes in the hills of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The routes range from 1 to 17 miles, and are clearly graded for distance and difficulty, as well as dividing between low-level, mid-level and mountain walks. Each of the area's 21 Munros are included, as well as plenty of Corbetts and Grahams. From short, loch-side strolls suitable for all walkers, to long, challenging mountain routes with rocky scrambling, including all three peaks of the Cobbler, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs hills have plenty to offer.

The walks in this guide are divided into areas: the Trossachs, Callander and Loch Lubnaig, Balquhidder and Lochearnhead, Crianlarich to Inveraran, Tyndrum, Ben Lomond, Loch Lomond West, Arrochar Alps and Glen Croe to Loch Goil.

This guidebook includes plenty of background information on the area, practical information on getting to and around the region's walks, advice on accommodation, what equipment to take, when to go, as well as interesting details on the schist rock that makes the hills, and important information on access in the hills and on Scottish estates.
