The village of Aberfoyle is very well situated in the scenic Trossachs area of Scotland, just 26 miles north of Glasgow and 22 miles west of Stirling with some stunning scenery on your doorstep. LOCATED in the heart of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park area, , it is an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful landscape. Nearby you will find Loch Ard, which boasts exciting activities including water sports, many walking trails such as the Loch Ard Sculpture trail, fishing opportunities with permits available locally as well as Loch Katrine where you can hop on-board a lake cruise on the SS Sir Walter Scott or hire a bike and explore on 2 wheels. ABERFOYLE is a popular holiday village, with its local amenities, a well stocked Co-op supermarket (open 7am-10pm daily), cafes, pub, chemist, shops, post office, fuel station, a new cycle hire shop and the Scottish wool centre, a regional attraction on the story of wool with live sheep shows, spinning demonstrations and working sheepdogs. The village also boasts one of the most scenic golf courses in Scotland, the Aberfoyle Golf Club, established back in 1890. The house is ideally positioned just above the main street of the village and a short 10 min walk from the door through the forest up to The Lodge visitors centre in Queen Elisabeth Forest Pk with waterfall, scenic views, cafe, lake & mountain walks &, Go-Ape zip wire experience (one of the longest in the UK). Hill walkers and cyclists can enjoy many wonderful trails across bens and lochs, through Dukes pass and onto Callander, around Loch Lomond. For those who wish to go further afield, there’s Stirling Castle, Blair Drummond Safari Park, the Falkirk Wheel, Glasgow, or even Edinburgh. Whatever the weather there’s something for all the family!

Interaction with guests
The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and has an unusually spacious living area ideal for groups of people staying, or families of different ages. Of course when the sun shines you'll be up those hills but should it rain, as well as the TV, there are board games and books to browse, the third bedroom upstairs is an adaptable space & can be easily used as a day room/an office/small dining area or kids playroom. There's even a small hatch that you can open if you need to keep an eye on the kids whilst cooking.Suggestions for a rainy day? Go up into the forest to check out the animal hides, watch the waterfall & make dams in the streams, perhaps you'll see a woodpecker or red squirrel on the way!
