Munros & Bens around Loch Lomond and The Trossachs
It is the beautiful scenery of the Highland Boundary Fault which makes hill walking around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs an unforgettable experience. With views on forests, lochs, farmland, hills and rivers, hill walking in this area is something special. Munros are mountains in Scotland higher than 3000ft (914m) and at present there are 283 Munros in Scotland. They are named after Sir Hugh Munro, 4th Baronet, who produced the first list of such hills, known as "Munros Tables", in 1891.
The smaller mountains between 2500ft and 3000ft are called Corbetts. There are currently 220 Corbetts in Scotland and one of the most climbed has got to be Ben Arthur, also known as "The Cobbler". This is a fantastic mountain of 3 peaks, forming part of the Arrocher Alps and we include it in this section due to its popularity with many climbers, walkers and mountaineers.
Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park offers a great range of Hills and Munros for the size of the park area. The most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond, is well-known among hill walkers and because of its location relatively easy to reach from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Even though there are higher Munros further North of Scotland, The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has a few challenging walks as well. For those who don’t want to climb a mountain, there are also many waymarked and unmarked walks of all levels with fantastic views.
