Full Day Loch Lomond Own 4x4 Experience

This is a fantastic day out - a great opportunity to put your own 4x4 through its paces in a safe environment, as you discover the stunning landscape around Loch Lomond and Loch Long.

We start with a driver briefing, with off road instruction and own vehicle familiarisation (where required). Then it's time to practice on our off-road skills course, before a wonderful gourmet Scottish buffet lunch.

In the afternoon, we run a guided trek, taking on lots of challenging terrain, led and followed by our instructors in our support vehicles. The tracks are exciting and the views and photo opportunities are nothing short of breath-taking. 

The Day in Detail

The full-day experience starts in the village of Luss, with morning coffees and driver briefing, covering basic off-road driving techniques. Vehicles must then pass our ‘scrutineering’ - a visual inspection to ensure that they have suitable tyres and ground clearance, and are in good roadworthy condition, with no fluid leaks or serious defects.

Our experienced instructors are always keen to chat about your own particular vehicle, and chat through the 4-wheel-drive system and offer advice, if required.

Each vehicle is issued with a two-way radio so that all of the vehicles on the trek are in radio contact, which makes for good banter and allows our team to give instruction and a tour along the way.

The trek begins with a visit to our off road skills area in the hills above Luss, where we have a range of challenging and fun obstacles, including steep ascents, decants, side slopes, mud and ruts. Our instructors are on hand to offer expert advice on off-road driving techniques, with one to one tuition available, helping you to get the best from your 4x4.

We return to The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel for a wonderful buffet lunch (included) before setting off on the afternoon trek. We visit two fantastic areas, the first overlooking Loch Lomond’s islands, and the second high on the hills overlooking Loch Long and the ‘Arrochar Alps’.

The trek is led and followed by our instructors in our fully equipped support vehicles, which are on hand should anyone get into any difficulty.

Vehicle Requirements

The trek takes place on historic, unmaintained estate tracks, which have lots of loose rocks, so all-terrain tyres are required. We cannot take vehicles with low profile road tyres, as they risk having wheels damaged, or soft sidewalls punctured by sharp rocks.

There are rocky areas, ruts and ditch crossings, so ground clearance similar to a standard Land Rover Defender is essential (around 240mm under the diff, or lowest mechanical point). 

If you are unsure about the suitability of your vehicle or tyres, please don’t hesitate to give us a call, or drop us an email and we can give you some guidance.
