    This stage starts by exploring Balloch Castle Country Park; where you experience lovely views over Loch Lomond amid a stunning landscape.

    

    You ascend gradually from the park and will notice the landscape change from farmland to rugged moorland as you get higher.

    

    The trail passes woodlands, skirts Thief
