Situation
2 The Orchard is part of a small exclusive development, situated within the village of Arrochar in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The area enjoys impressive scenery and offers an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities. The village itself offers a good range of local shops, hotels and restaurants as well as a village primary school.

Arrochar village is located at the head of Loch Long and at the bottom of Glenloin. The surrounding lochs, mountains and glens are dominated by the Cobbler, the centre piece of the Arrochar Alps, which at 884 metres (2,900 ft) in height, is a Corbett, not quite a Munro. Despite falling just short of a Munro, it is one of the most impressive summits in the Southern Highlands and is also one of the most important sites for rock climbing in the Southern Highlands.

Arrochar has village services which include; a petrol station, post office, newsagents, pottery and craft gallery, licensed grocers and there are also welcoming country pubs and restaurants.

At Tarbet there is the opportunity to catch a passenger ferry to explore the rest of Loch Lomond and to view the exceptional scenery from the water. A hotel and several bed and breakfast businesses cater for visitors to the area, as does the Tarbet Tea Room. Tarbet also has a Post Office and seasonal Tourist Information Centre.

Primary schooling is available in Tarbet and the nearest state secondary school is Hermitage Academy. Lomond School in Helensburgh is the nearest independent school.
The A82 and A83 provide good road access to north and south. There is a good local bus service and the scenic West Highland Railway runs through the villages, with a station at Tarbet (Arrochar & Tarbet), from where trains carry passengers to and from destinations including London, Glasgow, Fort William, Mallaig and Oban. There is an early morning commuter rail service from Tarbet and Arrochar station to the centre of Glasgow. Glasgow international airport is 33.9 miles away.

Loch Lomond is the centrepiece of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and is an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty. On all sides of the loch there are some of the most scenic and challenging walks and hill climbs in Scotland.
