Trossachs Parish Church

A picturesque area forming part of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the Trossachs was originally the name given to a pass extending from the head of Loch Achray to the end of Loch Katrine, with Ben A'an (463m / 1520 feet) to the north and Ben Venue (727m / 2386 feet) to the southwest. It is now loosely used to designate all of the scenic area between Callander and Loch Lomond, comprising lochs, mountains and forests. The Trossachs, which featured in Sir Walter Scott's poem Lady of the Lake and in his novel Rob Roy, are synonymous with Scotland's scenic beauty and the evolution of tourism from the early 19th century.
