Park the car for the duration of your break and pull on your walking boots. The Rob Roy Way passes our cabins at Strathyre taking you along a 7km trail up to Callander. You pass by the Falls of Leny, encounter an ancient Roman Fort and skirt the banks of the River Teith before arriving in Callander for refreshments.
The The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park has all the walking you could wish for, from gentle woodland walks to strenuous mountain climbs. Head for The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre for a range of family walks. More challenging walks will reward you with views over Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine. Or take the Duke’s Trail and look out for red squirrels. Rest up at the Lodge Visitor Centre café, which has one of the best views in Scotland.
Discover the Scottish Thistle Award winning BLISS trail of 25 art and architectural installations linking Strathyre with Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, and St Fillans. Walk, cycle NCR7 or drive around the audio trail. Download the Geotourist audio route finder app or the map. Don't forget your camera!
Wander around the shores of Loch Drunkie, take a forest walk to Loch Venacher or enjoy a gentle buggy-friendly walk along the shores of Loch Katrine completing the circuit by steam cruiser across the loch. Excite your senses at the white water Falls of Leny, climb up to the idyllic Bracklin Falls in Callander or take the Waterfall Trail in the Queen Elizabeth Forest park, where the waterfall appears before you as if by magic.
Strathyre is on the edge of the Trossachs, at the gateway to the Highlands, so you won’t be surprised that there are mountains to conquer. If you are an experienced walker looking for a challenge, head for the spectacular summits of Ben A’an, Ben Venue and Ben Ledi. Closest to Strathyre, Ben Ledi is a tough climb, being the highest hill in the Trossachs. Also close by are the Callander Crags, where the views of the town and the valley below are your reward for the climb.
