Lace up your boots while you're here and discover this landscape up close. Our break includes a Rover Ticket allowing unlimited travel on cruise, waterbus and ferry journeys with Cruise Loch Lomond which depart from opposite our hotel meaning you get even further off the beaten track!

Excursions

Succoth to Colregrogain Circular walk

Starting from the small nearby village of Succoth you'll walk along the valley between Glen Loin and Argyll Forest Park to Coiregrogain. From there we skirt the hills of A' Chrois and Creag Tharsuinn before walking through the astounding valley of Beinn Narnain and Ben Arthur along the Allt a' Bhalachain which bring you back into Succoth.


Hidden Heritage Trail

Walk between Tarbet and the next village of Arrochar. The villages are on either side of a isthmus with one on the shore of Loch Lomond and the other on the shore of Loch Long, yet only separated by just over a mile. This was the place where in 1263 the Vikings pulled 60 ships overland to take them from Loch Long to Loch Lomond in order to raid further inland and you can learn about this important patch of land's history during the walk. Be sure to take in the view of Ben Arthur along the route. 


Climb Ben Arthur

Ben Arthur, also known as The Cobbler, is said to be one of the finest peaks in the Southern Highlands, with views stretching for many miles around. The peak itself is very recognisable too, with three separate peaks making the mountain recognisable for miles around.
