The Trossachs wouldn’t be The Trossachs without its woodlands. At the heart of this majestic location is the Great Trossachs Forest, a vast and stunning stretch of woodland walks and natural beauty.
Beginning at Aberfoyle, stretching over the Duke’s Pass to Loch Achray and nestling around Loch Katrine, this woodland runs for miles continuing around Loch Arklet to the iconic shores of Loch Lomond. As one of Scotland’s largest native woodlands, it’s no surprise that this is the setting for many an outdoor adventure.
Packed with cycle and walking routes, and steeped in national history, this is the perfect location for families, ramblers and tourists alike. With paths and trails for all ages and experiences, one of the best ways to experience the sight and sounds of this lush woodland is by foot. Why not take a stroll around Primrose Hill or Little Drum Wood with the kids, discovering some of the forest’s ‘feely’ boxes as you go? For the more experienced walker, there’s the Brig o’ Turk Loop or the Loch Katrine North Shore walk.
The Great Trossachs Forest website offers all the details and directions you could possibly need for your woodland wanders. From wildlife watching and fishing to cruises and even a high wire adventure, there is an activity waiting for you in The Great Trossachs Forest. Not only are the woodlands packed with signature events such as the RSPB Cruise or the Art and Literature Trail, but the Forest also plays host to seasonal activities. Stay updated on all Forest activities on offer via the website’s dedicated page.
Glen Finglas will soon be home to the site’s new visitor centre. This will be a much welcomed and exciting hotspot for all explorers and visitors looking to experience the epic wonder of the Trossachs.
