Those who fancy putting on some climbing gear
and taking on some rocky challenges can do so as part of a festival
for all the family run by the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority.
Glenbranter in the Argyll Forest will be the venue for the Outdoor Recreation Festival
this Saturday (July 24th), where rock climbing is one of the many activities people can try out.
Others include guided walks, geocaching, orienteering, archery and abseiling.
Those who get bitten by the bug may wish to find some climbing hardware
at one of Go Outdoor's two Scottish stores, in Clydebank and Coatbridge.
Formed in 2002, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs was Scotland's first national park and includes a variety of scenery including lochs, forests and mountains.
Popular peaks include Ben Lomond, the southernmost of all the Munros, as well as the tricky climb up The Cobbler, which features an exposed scramble to reach its summit.
