    “The bike shed was really lovely and comfortable, good place for base to look around the area.”

    The couple that own it are very nice and friendly and say just to ask if you need anything.

About the location

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.
