Things to do

Many people come to enjoy the scenery and just get away from it all, but for those of a more active inclination, there is no shortage of things to do.


For those of you of a more active persuasion, here are a few of our personal favourites:

  • We have two golf courses within 5 minutes (one with a driving range)
  • Bike hire
  • Canoe hire
  • Boat trips
  • Fishing (permits available locally)
  • Hill walking, rambling and hiking


And if you'd like to take it just a little bit easier:

  • Painting
  • Photography
  • Glengoyne Distillery (10 minutes away)
  • Luss Village (Glendarroch in the ITV soap Take the High Road) with a sandy shore on Loch Lomond, kiltmaker and bagpipe works
  • Lomond Shores (retail, sealife centre and National Park visitor centre)
  • Glasgow for excellent shopping
  • Stirling and Edinburgh (exceptional historic cities)
  • There is also usually a Pipe band in the Square every Thursday evening during July and August.


Family favourites:

  • Blair Drummond Safari Park
  • Sea Life Centre at Lomond Shores
  • Briarlands Farm (a working farm with outdoor children's activities including jumping pillows, maise maze and pedal carts
  • David Marshall Lodge (forest visitor centre) with outdoor adventure playground, Go Ape! high-wire adventure course, extensive forest walks, Osprey watching (via hidden cameras), ranger-guided activties, shop and cafe.

(And three pubs to relax, unwind and meet the locals.....)
