Camping At Scotland’s Glen Luss

camping spotThere are many picturesque places in Scotland, a large number of which are perfect for camping, one place in particular has been recommended by a national organization called the Camping and Caravanning Club, is Glen Luss.

Loch Lomond recently became Scotland’s first national park and it includes a region called The Trossachs and this is where the camp site can be found.

It includes many tent pitches that are situated on the shoreline of the loch and is ideal for hikers.

Glen Luss is central to many interesting attractions and to the north is an art gallery and in the summer months visitors can catch the ferry over the loch, to the town of Rowardennan. The village of Tarbet is even further north and from there several loch cruises are available.

Firkin Point has both a cycleway and footpath, with wheelchair access, that follows the old road that goes around the loch. There are woodland walks, a site for picnics and plenty of wonderful views to enjoy.

It is well worth taking a trip to the country’s largest city, Glasgow which is easily accessible by bus. This vibrant European city was 1990’s culture capital and has many galleries, museums and shopping areas. The People’s Palace is especially interesting and should not be missed.

Other places to visit include a house built by Charles Rennie Mackintosh called The Hill House which is in Helensburgh and in Dumbarton there is a museum that celebrates the world of William Denny who was a Victorian ship designer.
