The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with many places to explore. You can hire bikes at Loch Katrine, sail on the steamship "Sir Walter Scott" to the top of the Loch and then walk/cycle back home. Or there is a fantastic circular route round Glen Finglas (staring from Brig O Turk), which can be also cycled or walked. There is numerous forestry marked pathways within the Queen Elizabeth Forest. Drive over the Duke’s Pass and count the number of bends in the road! and then return via the 3 Lochs Forest Drive. The Trossachs has fantastic mountains to climb - Ben A’ An, Ben Venue and Ben Ledi to name a few. There is also an abundance of wildlife from osprey to red squirrel, wild goats and pine martins, so bring your binoculars... Ideally situated to explore Callander (6 miles) or Aberfoyle (9 miles) and you are only half an hours drive from Stirling where you can explore historical places of interest or do a spot of retail therapy!
