The picturesque region of Perthshire South could be straight out of a fairytale. Nestled between Loch Tay and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the spirits of Robert Burns and Rob Roy live on and the ancient past is palpable.

 

Killin, which means ‘White Church’ in Gaelic, is located on the dramatic Falls of Dochart, one of the most photographed in Scotland. From its bridge, you can see the ancient burial ground of the once powerful MacNab Clan, and nearby is a prehistoric stone circle and Finlarig Castle, which is said to have once hosted Rob Roy.

 

And speaking of the famous Scottish hero, Rob Roy Way runs right through the village and along Loch Tay, offering panoramic views of the Tarmachan Ridge and Ben Lawers.

 

Dunblane is an ancient town, founded, according to legend, in 602 by St Blane, a Celtic missionary. The Medieval cathedral and nearby buildings, with the Allan Water running through it, give Dunblane a true old world feeling. Bookworms will enjoy browsing rare volumes in Leighton Library, the oldest private library in Scotland.

 

Escape to Perthshire South for a relaxing holiday in true Scottish style.

The northern part of Stirlingshire, including the Trossachs, has long been viewed as the day-trip destination by those living in the northern half of Glasgow.
Families would pile into cars on a Sunday and drive to Callander,  Doune and the Trossachs for afternoon tea and a wander round the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park or Loch Katrine.
It is no less popular a destination today, being part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is now also a mecca for walkers heading up the hills surrounding Loch Lomond’s eastern shore, like Ben Ledi and Ben Lomond.

There are many beautiful lochs to explore, including the only lake in Scotland, the Lake of Monteith, with its ancient ruin, the monastery Inchmahome Priory which served as a refuge to Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1547 when she was just four years old.

Explore Scotland’s past and some of its beautiful lochs with our hand-drawn map of Stirlingshire North.

Loch Lomond North

Loch Lomond is part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and one of the most spectacular, best known and popular lochs in Scotland.

The main route into the West Highlands runs alongside the loch, where there are ample opportunities to stop and admire the views, have a cup of tea and drink in the scenery at Tarbet, Inveruglas, Ardlui or Inverarnan. To fully appreciate the many attractions, walks, glens and the cylce path stay a few days at the many hotels, caravan parks and bed and breakfasts in the area.

The loch narrows as it reaches its northern most point, and the road continues to Crainlarich.

Keeping to the main road through Tarbet leads you towards Mid Argyll but take time to stop in Arrochar, where the first taste of the pace of Highland life will strike you as you unwind along the shores of Loch Long.
