We spent a week in the Trossachs exploring and saw endless beautiful places, at a good time of year due to the trees turning lovely colours but the Lake of Menteith was breathtakingly lovely.

Delighted to report that if anything it is even more beautiful than we remembered. Peaceful, serene, and beautifully framed by the gentle hills all around. We were pleased to see... 更多
