3 lochs way

The Three Lochs Way

A long-distance walking route linking Loch Lomond, Gare Loch and Loch Long

Three Lochs Way has a railway station at the start and end of each section, except at the very end at Inveruglas where there is only a bus stop.

Beginning at Balloch, gateway to the Loch Lomond National Park, the route crosses the moors to reach Helensburgh and Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House. It then crosses over to Glen Fruin and then enters the military training areas high above the nuclear weapons base at Faslane. After a detour to Garelochhead the route continues through the military ranges high above Loch Long. Arrochar, famous for its mountain skyline, is the next stop before a final stretch through the hills leads to Inveruglas on Loch Lomond. The route joins with the Cowal Way at Arrochar and both link to the West Highland Way by ferry from Inveruglas. Three Lochs Way
