Inversnaid RSPB Nature Trail
Follow the lovely nature trail in this RSPB reserve by Loch Lomond on this short walk. The route starts at the Inversnaid Hotel and follows the West Highland Way along the loch before climbing to oak woodland and open moorland where there are fabulous views. Look out for pied flycatchers, buzzards and woodpeckers on the way.
If you would like to extend your walk you could continue along the West Highland Way in either direction. You could also visit the beautiful Inversnaid Falls which are a short stroll from the start of this route.

The Inversnaid Hotel sits in a splendid location right next to the loch. It has some interesting history having previously been a hunting lodge for the Duke of Montrose. There are also links to Scotland's famous clan warfare and the clearances in the 18th century. From here there are fine views of nearby Arklet falls, the muse of Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott.
