When you use alternatives to a car for travelling you get to savour the views and feel the health benefits of the Scottish fresh air. We campaign to bring you the current alternative travel options available when visiting Loch Lomond and Trossachs and to increase the provision for the future.
Loch Lomond and Trossachs have several cycle routes which include cycle paths, forest tracks, country roads and trails. Details of the routes including NCN7 and West Lomond Cycle Path can be found on the National Park website https://www.lochlomond-trossachs.org/things-to-do/cycling/
Ebikes are a growing trend in active travel. They are a great way to travel further or on more hillier routes than you would on a traditional bike. For group cycle trips, differences in capability can be erased or they can offer assistance when pulling a child bike trailer.
The #ebike smile campaign has brought together details of routes, charging points and places to hire ebikes in Loch Lomond and Trossachs.
We have been inspired to campaign to increase the provision of ebike infrastructure along the south and west side of Loch Lomond. These are not only great places to visit but can be accessed via public transport.
The Waterbus service allows you to enjoy relaxing loch journeys and have time onshore to enjoy a short walk, cycle, lunch stop, wildlife spotting or even bag a Munro. Details of the routes and timetable can be found on the National Park website:
