Five Things to Know about The Clyde Sea Lochs Trail

Linking a necklace of coastal communities fringing the south western edge of the National Park, the Clyde Sea Lochs Trail leads visitors on a fascinating and scenic journey of discovery.

The trail, which has a dedicated map as well as a new Facebook page, is a great way to explore the coastal area by bike, touring by car or even by geocaching which is popular with kids and families.

Volunteers from destination organisation Love Loch Lomond have created the trail’s Facebook page to promote the Clyde Sea Lochs Trail, which launched a set of updated information panels along the route earlier this year.

A spokesperson said: “It’s all about getting more people to know of and appreciate what is on offer along the route between Dumbarton and Arrochar and including the Rosneath Peninsula”. “We aim to focus on the attractions, people and places which make this an interesting area for both visitors and locals to discover”.
