  Delivering for a   Decade 2002 –2012  Since its designation as Scotland’s rst National Park in 2002, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs has continued to grow in popularity and represents some of Scotland’s nest landscapes.

Whether you’re lucky enough to be a resident of one of our many communities, a frequent visitor or even if this is your rst trip to the Park, have a look through this booklet at some of the signicant achievements made over the past decade. Delivering for a Decade  Infrastructure As the Park was designated, a funding package of £1.83 million was made available to upgrade visitor facilities including road signs, interpretive plinths, specially designed picnic benches, seating, bins, cycle stands, interpretive exhibitions and lms for National Park Centres and displays for Visitor Information Centres throughout the Park. Community Partnership The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Community Partnership was set up to steer the early stages of the Community Futures Programme project. The Partnership became a limited company with charitable status allowing it to develop programmes of support to communities and to pursue park or area-wide priorities and projects. In its rst couple of years it helped 24 communities in and around the Park to prepare action plans, detailing their vision for the future, the current situation, the issues that matter most and priorities for action.  Community Futures Programme The Community Futures Programme was instigated in 2002 with the objective of providing communities with a way of thinking about and planning for their future. The key objective was to create and foster a support environment at local level within each of the 24 communities in and around the National Park. Each community undertook a Community Futures Process and established its own Community Development Company (CDC) - a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. Membership is open to residents and/or local organisations and is run by a Board of Directors. Inchcailloch Under an agreement with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), the Park manages recreation on Inchcailloch. The island closest to Balmaha forms part of the Loch Lomond National Nature Reserve (NNR). Many events take place on the island including guided walks with a natural and cultural history theme (the island has a history of settlement including a church and a graveyard), early morning bird watching and wildlife crime awareness. Rangers also host groups from schools, youth groups, outdoor education, universities and overseas. A wide range of conservation work is carried out on the island including wildlife surveys and removal of alien plant species. Visitors can make the most out of the island by staying overnight using theinformal campsite, managed by the Park.
