For a trail with views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond, take the 27.4km route from Tarbet (near Ardgartan Argyll) down to Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond.
This is a trail runs along the banks of Loch Lomond, taking in the pretty village of Luss where you can stop off to try some Scottish Tablet (a favourite local sweet treat). A train station at Balloch to bring you back to Tarbet.
There are two exciting trails for thrill-seekers at Glenbranter. The Glenshellish Route is described as a gentle taste of the wild, with the potential for sighting rare wildlife and enjoying glorious views. The Glen Eck Loop is a full day out and one for the fittest of cyclists, with some hard climbs. Those climbs are worth it though, for views of Loch Eck, Dunoon and the Clyde, Beinn Mhor and, on a clear day the islands of Jura and Islay.
The perfect way to kickstart your break at Ardgartan.
Want to get straight out into the forest as soon as you arrive? Book bikes at the same time as your break so they’re ready for when you get here. Log into your account to add bike hire or give us a call on 03330 110 495 and we’ll take care of the details. But be quick, bikes are already selling fast.
