SCOTLAND ~ Loch Lomond - The Trossachs National Park ~

... Breathtaking and stunning nature views... at the heart of the park is Loch Lomond itself....  Britain's largest freshwater lake,.... it’s the perfect place to visit for hillwalking, climbing and boat trips....,this NP is home to the world’s largest grouse, the Capercaillie... It’s so popular because 50% of Scotland’s population live within an hour of the area... with nice purple "thistle" stamp, the floral symbol of Scotland... I can't thank you enough dear Andrene for all these amazing NP \_(♥‿♥)_/ (it took almost a month to cross the Channel  o͜͡o)

The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is Scotland’s first National Park and was established in the year 2002 and has a size of 720 square miles.

The park is centred on Loch Lomond and falls into four distinct parts: The Trossachs, Breadalbane, Argyll Forest (Britain’s first forest park) and Loch Lomond. In the north of the park you will find impressive mountains. The mountains above 3,000 feet are named after the man who first listed them, Munros. The park consists of 20 Munros and the high point is Ben More at 3,852 feet. The south of the loch consists of a scattering of islands and more than 50 flowing rivers.
