    We rented for two people and had more than enough space in this cozy apartment conveniently located close to the Co-op (supermarket), gift shops (several), butchers (2), and restaurants (many). The Co-op has everything, from sandwiches to meat and veg. We stopped at Liz MacGregor's restaurant and coffee shop and we enjoyed a breakfast and a soup, which were very good and recommended. One night we had dinner at The Faerie Tree - also within walking distance - and splurged on their 'black rock' menu items. £50 for two, but lots of fun to cook top quality steak, gammon, and prawns on a volcanic rock! The sides were cooked and presented marvelously! The other dinners were bought from the Co-op and both butcher shops. The Aberfoyle Butcher on the edge of town is the more traditional and we got fantastic steaks and a variety of tasty sausages, including one with haggis. The other one is the Aberfoyle Delicatessen and Trossachs Butcher, and as the name suggests, has more items, including the best steak pies ever. The owner, Flo, left us milk, shortbread, a soft drink, and other tea/coffee items, which were appreciated. The apartment is spotlessly clean, with everything we needed, and the appliances worked perfectly. In the apartment, the bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage - wardrobes and drawers. There is a second TV in the master bedroom. The view from the second bedroom looks down on the main street, a stone bridge and the river. There is not much traffic, but the windows are double glazed anyway. Decor has plenty of tartan, which is lovely. The kitchen and bathroom are perfect for the size of property and everything worked perfectly. There are heaters everywhere to use if the temperature drops below normal, which it did on a couple of days, but the apartment was lovely and warm. It is very convenient to the Go Ape attraction at the David Marshall Lodge, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. We went there for the wildlife hide and got great photos of red squirrels and birds, such as robins and a tree creeper. Beyond that, there are lovely lochs to explore with tons of photographic opportunities, whatever the weather. All in all, great accommodation in a picturesque area of Scotland.

ABERFOYLE

Stirling 19 miles.

The village of Aberfoyle lies within The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, a popular tourist destination. From Aberfoyle there is easy access to Loch Katrine, where you can take a gentle boat cruise, or the Lake of Menteith, reputed to be the best location for fly fishing for rainbow trout in Central Scotland. Aberfoyle itself offers a selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. It has its own 18-hole golf course, and for the more adventurous, the largest ‘Go Ape’ experience in the country, situated at the David Marshall Lodge Visitor Centre. Approximately 20 minutes’ drive away is the Glengoyne Distillery where you can enjoy the Scottish malt whisky experience, or head towards the shores of Loch Lomond, the single biggest expanse of inland water in Britain, offering a variety of activities. Within The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park there are a huge variety of attractions; enjoy a gentle stroll through the Balloch Castle Country Park or the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, or, for the more adventurous, the mountains offer challenging walks and climbs. For a family day out, stop off at the Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park on your way to the nearby city of Stirling, with its ancient castle and Wallace Monument of great historic interest. Further away, the city of Edinburgh is well worth a visit.
