Driving in Loch Lomond/Trossachs - things to do

We will rent a car for a day from Edinburgh – very keen on driving around Loch Lomond/Trossachs to see the scenery, countryside villages, sheep, loch & hills. I would appreciate if you could help me with -

1. Which place to rent the car in Edinburg – airport?. We will be staying in Edinburgh Park (The Gyle).

2. Where to get the boat trips on Loch Lomond or Loch Katrine? How long is the boat trip?

3. Any suggestion on places to visit around Loch Lomond/Trossachs? Short stay for 1-2 hrs before driving again?

I don’t mind driving the whole day, I am sure the traffic would be better than driving on M25 in London.

Thanks you.

Yes, the airport is good from the point of view that it is easy to get out onto the motorway to Glasgow or Trossachs.

Have you loooked at the website for the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park for ideas, routes, etc?

Both lochs will be good for boat trips.

ALso google for Rabbies ot Timberbush to spot the routes they use. That will give you the idea, as will:

undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/usmapindexes/west… for things to do

The usual place to get the boat is here http://goo.gl/maps/wudks . It then takes you on a tour and back or lands at the other end of the loch. This is better than the Loch Lomond boat (personal opinion)

Doesn't the Park's site tell you about the boat?

Last time I was on the loch, I got a boat from Cameron House. But I suspect regular services probably advertise. Have you tried Googling?

If you can't find any information, try Balloch. The park HQ is there.
