The Trossachs Trail
Explore the lochs, glens and mountains of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park on foot. The Trossachs Trail explores the most picturesque area of the Trossachs, an enchanting area filled with rivers and forest, rich in both scenic beauty and historical interest. The Trossachs inspired Sir Walter Scott to write “Lady of the Lake” and “Rob Roy”, both of which popularized the Highlands of Scotland.
Your walking break starts in Callander, a charming town often called the 'Gateway to the Highlands'. You begin with a wander along Loch Venachar and then climb over the Menteith Hills to Aberfoyle, enjoying wonderful views to the south. Turning north you walk through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and over the Duke’s Pass to the hamlet of Brig o’ Turk. The route continues through Glen Finglas and to Balquhidder, a beautiful glen famous as the site of Rob Roy’s Grave. If you have chosen the shorter break this is where your journey ends, or for those continuing to Callander you have a magical final day’s walking down Strathyre to look forward to.
