Walk: the Hidden Heritage Trail, which follows part of the Three Lochs Way and forms a circular route between Arrochar and Tarbet. Download a leaflet here. There are interpretation panels at the Three Villages Hall and along the trail. Thanks to St. Andrews University Open Virtual Worlds group, we now have a phone app for our heritage trail! Special thanks to Ade Fabola and Alan Miller for making that possible. You can download a version of the 'Arrochar Mobile App' for Android devices HERE, or an IOS version from iTunes HERE

Walk: the Forestry Commission's Tarbet Loop starting at Arrochar and Tarbet Railway Station. The trail is circular, climbing above Tarbet Village and through mixed woodland, taking in views of the isthmus and Loch Lomond.

Walk: the Forestry Commission's  Arrochar Walk starts at the Arrochar and Tarbet Railway Station (Grid Ref NN311045) or near Arrochar Village Post Office (at Grid Ref NN299045). The walk takes you through attractive mixed woodland and skirts the isthmus, enjoying panoramic views down the length of Loch Long.

Walk: the Three Lochs Way which takes you on a fascinating journey through place and time as it links a necklace of communities around the Clyde Sea Lochs fringe of Scotland’s first national park. As the trail approaches Arrochar from the south, you will begin to glimpse the isthmus in all its glory. The Three Lochs Way follows the Viking portage route near to its end at Tarbet on Loch Lomond. Crossing our historic 'corridor' of land at Ballyhennan, the trail returns through Forestry Commission woodland, joining the 'Arrochar Walk' to the head of Loch Long.

Drive and Park: in Arrochar, near the Three Villages Hall or at Tarbet Pier, and visit the isthmus. The A82 crosses the isthmus and you can park in numerous places to view the intriguing humps and bumps in the landscape.

Drive: Follow the trail of the Vikings from Arran and Largs all the way to Arrochar. This route highlights 13 sites along the Clyde with archaeological evidence of Viking activity. Download a map and leaflet here.

Rail: sit in comfort on the stunning West Highland Railway line as it travels on the southern edge of the isthmus and crosses it to reach Arrochar and Tarbet Station.

Virtual: Have some fun and explore the wonderful world of archaeology by visiting the 'GAMES- with an archaeological theme' section of the British Archaeological Jobs & Resources website.
