The Friends

For over 35 years our independent conservation and heritage charity - the Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs - has been working to protect, promote and provide for this special part of Scotland that extends to 720 square miles and embraces precious mountains, lochs and glens made famous by writers and artists over many hundreds of years. The area is enjoyed by large numbers of visitors and locals each year and to ensure everyone can continue to enjoy and celebrate the special landscapes of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs we need your support.
