As an in-house writer for Off the Beaten Path, a good chunk of my day is spent researching travel destinations – reading magazine articles, perusing traveler reviews, gaining insight from travelers’ blogs, and speaking with locals.

You’ll take the high road—to the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomand. This largest lake in all Great Britain crosses the boundary between the Scottish Highlands and the lowlands of Central Scotland. It also happens to be surrounded by the Trossachs, a magical region of sparkling lochs, wild little glens, jumbled mountains, quiet forests, and quaint villages.
Explore Loch Lomand and The Trossachs National Park on an active adventure that has you walking, hiking, biking, and savoring it all over a single malt after a fun distillery tour. Local guides are on hand to get you out into the countryside and keep you hillwalking to your heart’s content. You also have a day and night in Edinburgh to appreciate the iconic sights there.
One of the beauties of this trip is that, after Edinburgh, you can settle into one welcoming, vintage-chic local inn for the duration of the adventure, and base your day trips from there. The café sources food from their own farm, and boasts a “cracking wee wine and beer list.”
