Celebrate National Parks Week and Get Active

To celebrate National Parks week, which starts on Monday 29th July,  Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond Shores are proud to announce a free event on Friday 2 August from 10am to 4pm at Loch Lomond Shores, Balloch. Get Active is designed to give people a taste of different activities including archery, mountain biking, climbing and rowing. All activities are free and ideal for the school holidays.

Speaking about the event, Charlie Croft, Tourism Adviser for Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park said: “During National Parks week, what better way to showcase what Loch Lomond & The Trossachs has to offer than to share lots of different activities with our visitors. And in this Year of Natural Scotland, we’re encouraging people to get out and about and use the fantastic landscape of the National Park to get active. There’s something for everyone to try so if you’ve always fancied having a go on a segway, tackling a climbing wall or kayaking on Loch Lomond, come along and have a go.

Clare Gemmell, Manager for Loch Lomond Shores added: “The range of activities which are available within the National Park is tremendous, so it’s fabulous to be part of an event that offers visitors the opportunity  to try their hand at such an amazing range at no cost.  It is going to be such an action packed day with horse and trap rides for those looking to take it easy right through to guided canoe trips for the more adventurous.  My only advice is to get here early to take advantage of this amazing event”.

Other activities on the day include bushcraft, katakanu and rib rides. All activities are free with visitors asked to sign up for different activities on the day.

Get Active is supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Natural Scotland celebrations 2013.
