From Loch Lomond to the Trossachs
The Trossachs is a naturally beautiful part of lowland Scotland and, to some extent, mirrors the beauty of the Highlands with its lochs, glens and mountains. But it is some of the stories connected with this part of the world that draw thousands of visitors each year.
The stories of fairies and a book written by a clergyman who truly believed in their existence and strange happenings just after the book was published. Hear about Rob Roy, Scotland’s Robin Hood and also about the famous Loch Katrine, brought to life by the epic poem by Sir Walter Scott, the Lady of the Lake.
