[Loch Lomond Shores]

Loch Lomond Shores is probably the busiest part of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, barely 10 miles from the outskirts of Glasgow. A row of tourist-orientated shops curve gracefully around the southern tip of Loch Lomond, dominated by Drumkinnon Tower which houses a shiny aquarium. For obvious reasons this is a good rainy day option, although in clear weather there are also spectacular views north across the water towards mountainous country. Newish ropes courses and a bird of prey centre complete the offering.
