The Trossachs is an area of woodlands,
rivers and mountains stretching from Stirling to Perth.
Popular with walkers, canoeists and wildlife enthusiasts
it has a wide range of landscapes and villages to explore.
The largest village is Callander which has a tourist information
and visitor's centre as well as plenty of tourist shops,
cafes and places to stay. The village also has a dramatic
waterfall further up the hill, where there are more woodland
walks to follow.
During the summer the Trossachs
Trundler Bus can be caught in Stirling and will take
you through the main scenic areas. The tourist information
will be able to advise you of departure times and tickets.
To explore some of the more challenging mountain walks
it is advised to go by car with a map and proper clothing
as well as seek advice from the local mountain rescue
for your own safety.
