Lakes and Boat Rides, Mountains and a Castle

A Perfect Potted Scotland Adventure Day!

The Hike – Ben A’an is a small volcano with a big view! Think: Walk up a Hill and Come Down a Mountain! It is well worth the bit of puffing to get up those 340m ascent which takes about 3.5 hours (up and down, 4km), including a good break on top taking in those wonderful views over the loch and hills of the National Park.

Cycle Ride – After lunch you have the choice of a fabulous cycle ride along the scenic shores of Loch Katrine or you can walk it, if you prefer, or take a

Boat Ride  (as available per season)– on Loch Katrine and learn about the fascinating history and events surrounding this secretive lake. Great activities for families and kids.

Did you know? Loch Katrine is the scene that the 19th century writer Walter Scott chose for his famous ballad ‘Lady of the Lake’. Once there you can see why …

A Castle – Of course, a castle is the essential item on a Scotland trip and it would be sacrilege to pass by without stopping. Medieval Doune Castle – of Monty Python fame – presents a fantastic opportunity en route back to Stirling.
