Paths & Access

One of the charitable purposes of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs Countryside Trust is to improve the visitor experience and enjoyment of the National Park by providing recreational facilities with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities or activities are primarily intended.

We will therefore be seeking involvement with projects which provide new access opportunities or which maintain or improve the visitor experience and enjoyment of the National Park, these projects will include path works, cycleways, car parking, the promotion of active travel opportunities and other recreational facilities within the National Park.

  • Assessing path conditions

  • Enabling everyday walks
  • Encouraging Hill walks


The National Park Outdoor Recreation Plan clearly identifies a number of actions that cover a broad spectrum of recreational activities including:

  • Family friendly activities
  • Accessible and diverse range of activities at entry level
  • Recreational off road cycling
  • Linking up the Park and creating journeys
  • Water based recreation
  • And letting people know what they can do and where

We also hope to work with our partners at Paths for All to ensure that active travel opportunities within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are provided, enabling more people to leave their cars at home and to enjoy visiting or commuting within the National Park in a sustainable way.

In the future we will also be working alongside the Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust to deliver improved upland and mountain paths within the National Park.
