ACTIVITIES The beautiful natural backdrop of the Trossachs provides a multitude of activities to appeal to every taste, from gentle forest walks to hillwalking, climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, golfing, canoeing and other watersports. WALKING There are myriad forest walks available, ranging from the short 2 mile excursion to Doon Hill, near Aberfoyle (the setting for a local fairy tale!) to the longer 12 mile walk from the Trossachs Pier to Stronachlacher (returning by steamer). Details of various walks can be found in the Trossachs Footprints Walks leaflets contained in the information box in the cottage, and a wider selection is available at the Aberfoyle Tourist Information Office. HILLWALKING For hillwalking enthusiasts there are a selection of Munros (Scotland's mountains of 3000ft & over) in the area, as well as other hills: Ben A'an(461m - footpath from A821, north of Loch Achray) Ben Venue (727m - accessible from behind Loch Achray Hotel near Trossachs Pier, or Glen Ledard from Kinlochard) Ben Ledi (879m -footpath from A84, 2.5 miles from Callander) Ben Lomond(974m - footpath from Rowardennan on east side of Loch Lomond) Ben More & Stob Binnein (1174m & 1165m - from A85 close to Crianlarich) Ben Vorlich & Stuc a'Chroin (985m & 975M - from Ardvorlich on south side of Loch Earn) Stron Lochie (501m - the hill on the other side of Loch Dhu! - no path, and requires a bit of scrambling through undergrowth & trees!)

Fabulous Stay!
We had great time staying in this wonderful homely cottage. There was an issue with the heating not working, but it was fixed very quickly so no problem. Amazing location with lots of fantastic walks nearby, and great wildlife. Really recommend staying here!

5/5 Excellent

Scottish Hideaway !
Lovely location , lovely cottage ! Spotlessly clean . The photographs do not do the cottage justice, it is larger than it appears. There is plenty of room to chill and enjoy the views , yet it still remains cosy . Everything required for a peaceful holiday in a perfect setting. Endless local walks were not spoiled by the Scottish rain , colours fantastic in October . Thank you for the welcome Jules .

5/5 Excellent

Great Escape
We can't recommend this property more. The cottage exceeded expectations and was a lot bigger than it looks in the photos. The location is perfect, within 10mins of Aberfoyle but it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. We spent 5 days with our 10month old exploring the area and enjoying the tranquility of the area, walks, ferry ride, safari park and Stirling which is only 45mins away. We will return for sure.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic house and views
Location was great, as secluded but easy to get to everything locally. The house itself was lovely with everything you need.

5/5 Excellent
