Located on River Firth, Aberfoyle is the gateway to the Highlands. Boasting connections with Scottish legends (Rob Roy) and literary greats (Sir Walter Scott wrote 'The Lady of the Lake' here), the village has a healthy tourist track record. With its church ruins, craft shops, cluster of restaurants and views of Ben Lomond it's hardly surprising.
As with most Scottish villages the great outdoors is a key attraction. The nearby Queen Elizabeth Forest Park offers some stunning vistas and leisure opportunities with lochs, crystal clear rivers, tumbling streams, lush forests and moor land all on the doorstep. The Scottish Wool Centre and village's eighteen-hole golf course are other attractions of interest to visitors, as well as Braeval Old Mill restaurant that is owned by celebrity chef Nick Nairn, although booking well in advance is advised! Then there's the pony trekking and bird watching, as well possibilities to venture further a field to Stirling, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
