Red deer wearing their winter fur, golden eagles soaring through white skies, frost on fir trees — who says that The Trossachs are just a summertime delight?
This region of lochs and forests looks stunning in glittering winter too. And what better way to enjoy it all than by gliding across Loch Katrine on an elegant cruiser?
And if your loch tour should include a three-course festive meal, then all the better.
Enjoy a day out to remember this winter with today’s Big Deal on a Christmas meal and cruise on Loch Katrine, which includes a warm and spicy glass of mulled wine too.
