Beautiful scenery. Loch Katrine boat cruise is lovely. Take the boat to Stronachlachar at the north end where you will find the Pier Cafe ( 01877 386 374) and after a lunch/ coffee there are walks from here, cycle back down the east side of the loch on traffic free road( book ahead with www.katrinewheelz.com) of take the boat back down.
Great walks with stunning views. Even on a rainy day, the forests here can provide distraction and beauty.
Often described as ‘The Highlands in miniature’ the Trossachs is a beautiful area of shimmering lochs, craggy hills, peaceful forests and picturesque villages that sit to the west of Stirling and the east of Loch Lomond. Sure to provide picture perfect moments for your visit, films that have used the Trossachs as an atmospheric backdrop include 'Rob Roy' (1953), the Bollywood epic ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ (1998) and the epic, historical drama ‘The Eagle’ (2011) starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell.

We are at the gateway to the highlands and the Trossachs National Park which has a great range of walks and hillwalking for Munroists.
TROSSACHS DRIVING TRAIL (24 miles) One of Britain’s best drives with views around every corner and lots to do. There are quaint & quirky tea rooms or visit the local bakeries, deli, sandwich shops in Callander and pack a picnic as there are some lovely secluded picnic spots along the way. A walker’s paradise with enough to keep you busy for a whole week. Do take one of the Trossachs Trail guides on display. The best way to go round is to turn left in Callander Main Street and take the A81 road towards Glasgow. Follow the signs to Aberfoyle and follow the road northwards through the Duke’s Pass. The best views are then in front of you rather than behind! Do take a detour before Aberfoyle to the Lake of Menteith (Scotland’s only Lake) and take a boat to Inchmahone Priory on an island in the Lake. Mary Queen of Scots spent part of her childhood here. It is a lovely, peaceful spot but don’t miss the last boat back! In Aberfoyle is the Scottish Wool Centre, an interesting place to browse, and just outside the village is the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park Visitors Centre with many lovely walks nearby. There is also the Loch Achray forest drive, a 10 mile drive down forest tracks, with plenty of places to picnic. On the drive you will see signposts to Loch Katrine. If time allows, take a trip on the steamship, ‘Sir Walter Scott’. Bike hire is available at Loch Katrine and it’s possible to take bikes onboard for a one-way sail which allows you to cycle the 10-mile loch side road back (only Water Board vehicles allowed). THE GREAT TROSSACHS PATH This is one of Scotland’s great walking trails, is a 30-mile long route running between Callander in the east to Inversnaid and Loch Lomond in the west, and also passing through Brig o’ Turk, the Loch Katrine area and Stronachlachar. The path connects the Rob Roy Way with the West Highland Way and also links to the Three Lochs Way, so long-distance walkers are now able to undertake an extraordinary journey through the centre of Scotland. Spurring from The Great Trossachs Path are 165km of short, long and circular routes of various lengths and challenges. And each has its own unique character. Please see the Great Trossachs Path Leaflet for the list of walks. Here are a few of our suggestions: Brenachoile Trail from the Pier at Loch Katrine: This 4 ½ miles/7.1 km tarmac trail to Brenachoile Point and back is ideal for gentle walking or cycling, and the views across the loch are breathtaking. Follow the beautiful oak-laced shore of Loch Katrine to the wonderful viewpoint on Brenachoile Point. Wide, smooth tarmac surface with moderate slopes. Brief uneven grassy path to the viewpoint with short fairly steep slope. Learn how the landscape and its history inspired artists, writers and musicians. Discover the story of the Lady of the Lake and why this place sparked the travel bug in Victorian times. Allow 2½ hours. Glen Finglas: Glen Finglas has an extensive and varied network of walking routes to suit all abilities. You can find more details in the Glen Finglas leaflet and via the interactive screen at the Visitor Gateway in the Lendrick Hill car park (opening hours: April to October, 10am – 4pm). Information is also available at Visit Scotland’s Aberfoyle iCentre (tel: 01877 381221) and the Callandar iCentre (tel: 01877 330342). You can also download an app from the Great Trossachs Forest website. Our favourite walk in Glen Finglas is as follows: Little Druim Wood and Brig o’ Turk Loop (moderate; 5.5km/3.5 miles; 2 hours) This figure-of-eight walk explores the beautiful native woodland and open countryside around Brig o' Turk (Bridge of the Wild Boar). It combines several shorter way-marked loops and gives some excellent views. Please borrow our walking notes for details of this walk.
