Sea-Lochs-Trail-plaqueTHE Clyde Sea Lochs Trail from Dumbarton to Arrochar has been brought back to life, with new panels telling the story of the coastal communities.

The trail was first launched 15 years ago, but the information panels became faded or damaged, so local tourism group Love Loch Lomond decided to take action.

They commissioned new-look durable interpretation panels which have now been unveiled.

The trail leads visitors on a fascinating and scenic journey of discovery. Each panel is packed with information about the Clyde Sea Lochs, their origins, scenery, wildlife and communities, and features new panoramic and wildlife illustrations.

Stuart Cordner, chairman of Love Loch Lomond, said: “We are delighted to relaunch the Clyde Sea Lochs Trail.

“The new interpretation panels have been completely rewritten and designed, and now include a geocaching trail making the Clyde Sea Lochs an even more appealing area to visitors keen to get off the beaten track.”

The nine panels are sited at a point of interest or viewpoint: Dumbarton's Denny Tank, Ardmore Point car park, Helensburgh, the A817 Haul Road above the Gareloch, Whistlefield, Arrochar, Clynder, Kilcreggan and Cove.

All the panels are easily accessible from the road and have a good car park nearby. The picture shows Anne Urquhart of Love Loch Lomond with one of the new panels.
