Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park: Volume 2 East

Walking Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Ronald Turnbull - The hills and glens of the Trossachs and Loch Lomond make up Scotland's first national park. They are the first of the Highlands, and easiest to get to, if approaching from the south. They are also first in the affections of many hill-goers. Slightly less savage than the mountains further north, on a slightly smaller scale, they have a rugged charm that's all their own. This book suggests the most straight forward routes to each of the area's 21 Munro summits of 3000ft (910m) and over, but also seeks out the wilder and less walked-on ways around the back. It also covers the many slightly smaller but equally worthwhile hills in the area, from the Cobbler to the Luss Hills and Ben Ledi. From Lomond's bonnie banks to the Hill of the Fairies, from Arrochar Alps to lowly Ben A'an, and whether you take the high road or the low, here is some of Scotland's best, and best-loved, hill country.

Pathfinder Guide: Loch Lomond and Trossachs

Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, 40 Favourite Walks, Paul and Helen Webster - The new Loch Lomond National Park has ensured protection for what is not only Britain's largest freshwater lake, but one of its most beautiful, celebrated in ballad and song. West of Loch Lomond are the steep Arrochar Alps towering above Loch Long together with scores of much less visited lower hills stretching down to the seaboard. To the east is the Trossachs - a delightful landscape of forests, lochs and hills that has long been known as Scotland in miniature. This latest pocket guide features 40 of the best walks in this popular area in an attractive and accessible format. Published March 10.

Walking the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Fells, Patrick Baker - As rugged and spectacular as they can be tranquil and picturesque, the Campsie Fells, the Ochils and the Lomonds are the most accessible hills in Scotland's Central Belt. Despite their close proximity to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, these three ranges remain a remarkably uncrowded wilderness area. Combining a rich mixture of open moorland peaks, steep sided glens, fast flowing burns and lush woodland, few other areas can treat the hillwalker to such diverse scenery and varieties of animal and plant life in the space of a single day's outing. This guide describes 33 contrasting walks that will take the walker over the three ranges. The majority of these walks are circular. Published June 08

Pathfinder Loch Lomond and The Trossachs and Stirling, Dennis Kelsall - The walks in this guide introduce the many facets of the Southern Highlands and range from easy loch-side strolls to strenuous expeditions onto some of the area's highest mountains. Walking in Scotland is quite different from walking south of the border. In England there are only eight summits that top 3000 ft, while in Scotland there are 277, with 45 of them situated in the Southern Highlands. Walks taking in the mountains of the National Park include Beinn Dubh, Ben Vorlich, The Cobbler, Ben Ledi, Ben Lomond and Ben Venue. The Trossachs are particularly spectacular when clothed in autumn colours and provided the setting for The Lady of the Lake and Rob Roy, by Sir Walter Scott. The Ochil Hills, Loch Lomond and the West Highland Way are also included, and there is an opportunity to see Stirling and the Wallace monument, overlooking the scene of the Scottish patriot's victory over Edward I.

The Rob Roy Way: From Drymen to Pitlochry, Jacquetta Megarry Rucksack Reader -  This long-distance walk from Drymen to Pitlochry was developed by Rucksack Readers in partnership with walking enthusiasts. It runs for 79 miles (126 km) along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycle route, forest tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). The route has no official status, but was negotiated with private landowners, Forest Enterprise, Stirling and Perth Councils and others. The Way offers superb views, but is less strenuous than the West Highland Way. It is not fully waymarked as such, but the book gives detailed directions and most of it is straightforward. Walkers are always advised to carry a compass, but are unlikely to need it unless walking an exposed section in winter. This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: background on Rob Roy MacGregor, history, heritage and wildlife; summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops; drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels; visitor attractions and hills to climb (Munros, Corbetts and Grahams); special notes for people with no previous experience; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane. In full colour, with over 60 photographs; waterproof paper throughout.

It starts by passing through the lush lowlands north of Milngavie into the rugged landscapes of Loch Lomond, Glen Falloch and Strath Fillan before heading for Rannoch Moor and Black Mount.

The West Highland Way, Anthony Burton - The 93-mile West Highland Way is indisputably Britainís most spectacular long-distance path. The first section, following the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, offers an idyllic waterside walk, with the full grandeur of the Highlands gradually revealing itself. Then, after crossing the barren wilderness of the Rannoch Moor, the walker climbs the Devilís Staircase above Glencoe and traverses classic Highland landscapes to reach Fort William and, if he or she wishes, a grand finale at the peak of Britainís highest mountain, Ben Nevis. This comprehensive, easy-to-use guide is an authoritative companion, packed with indispensable information. Published July 13.

25 WALKS: Loch Lomond & The Trossachs

Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Hugh Taylor - These walks are Scotland in microcosm. With water everywhere reflecting the sky, forests and the hillsides in still clear lochs or tumbling down crags and glens in rushing white torrents. There is the fresh smell of damp forests in the morning and wood smoke at night. The colour may be bright as blue skies and fresh green meadows or rich as autumn gold all around and underfoot or dim as misty mountains wreathed in cloud. You can see the majestic golden eagle soaring high above a mountain pass or a buzzard swoop on its prey over marshland. The fortunate will see otters, foxes and maybe even the shy pine martin but most will see red and roe deer. Twenty routes of between 2 and 5 miles in length. Graded according to difficulty. Contains OS maps. Limited availability. Published April 05

Trossach Glens, Peter Koch-Osborne - The aim in this series of books is to provide the mountain biker and walker with information on an intended route so they know something of what to expect. One of the problems is that O.S. maps give no indication as to whether an 'other road' is metalled, a path or a forest fire break, or anything in between. Many bridges shown on O.S. maps do not exist. Rivers are difficult to judge in size from the map, and a building may be anything from a pile of stones to a maintained bothy. All is revealed without removing the sense of adventure and exploration. Gradient profiles help to assess how strenuous a route is, and each hand-drawn page contains a wealth of information. The object is to save wasted leisure time and enable the armchair explorer to plan ahead or relive experiences. "The Glens of Trossach" includes: Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, South Tayside and Lochearnhead, Callendar to Comrie and Crieff and the Ochil Hills. Limited availability. Published June 04
