Some Places We Will Visit

  • Aberfoyle

    The sleepy village of Aberfoyle suddenly bursts into life in the summer with the arrival of hordes of tourists. It lies on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and, along with Callander to the east, is one of the main tourist centres for the Trossachs.

  • Stirling

    As you'd expect with such a strategically important town, Stirling has a long and fascinating history and is packed with major historical sights.

  • Balmaha

    Balmaha located on the East Shore of Loch Lomond is a great stopping off point at the foot of the Conic Hill. This beautiful place has been slowly transformed into a popular tourist destination on the Loch. Balmaha is an ideal spot for walkers on the West Highland Way. The name Balmaha is said to be originated from the Gaelic from the St Maha’s place giving the village an ancient origin.
