Those looking to go walking
in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park may be interested in a new website started by a village in the area.
Gartocharn.org is a community site aimed at providing information for both locals and visitors, including details on things to see and do.
It notes that those who come with their walking equipment
can enjoy a hike round Duncryne to the south of the village or northwards to the Aber shore of Loch Lomond, with a nature reserve just beyond this location.
Visitors seeking somewhere off the beaten track may consider a trip to this part of the national park, which lies on the lowland side of the highland fault line.
Those keen to climb some hills and avoid the crowds may wish to leave the park's Munros behind and opt for a round of the Luss Hills, six Grahams (peaks between 2,000 and 2,499 ft) located to the west of Loch Lomond.
