with great view all around.

You can either visit the exhibition at the Cultybraggan WWII POW camp

and the charming Highland Perthshire village of Comrie.

There are great walks all around Comrie including to the Deil’s cauldron & the Melville monument

Alternatively after Braco you may wish to head towards Muthill and the stunning Drummond castle & gardens

  • featuring as Versailles in the Outlander series.

Once you are at the old market town of Crieff

you are only a short distance from the Famous Grouse Glenturret distillery

From there you can head out west through picturesque Comrie and stunning Highland scenery to the small village of St. Filans  by the shores of Lochearn with nice walks.

You may either go along the main or the southern back country route and then enter Highland Stirlingshire and the Loch Lomond & Trossachs nationalpark

Rob Roy, the famous clan chief of the local MacGregor clan lies buried in Balquhidder

from Balquhidder you can head to the beautiful Highland Loch Voil

and then along to the shores Loch Lubnaig

with more walking options – incl. the Falls of Leny

or take a break at the cosy log cabin cafe at the Loch Lubnaig Forestry commission cabines

From here you might wish to visit Hamish and Moira the Hairy Coos at Kilmahog or spend some time in Callander

Callander is the gateway to the Trossachs or go out exploring the Bracklinn falls.

If you are into some more adventure, while others go walking in the Queen Elizabeth forest park

and others relax in Aberfoyle.

The adventure might want to have a go at Go Ape & the zipwires

As this is only a short day tour we might like to point out that spectacular Loch Katrine

is just a short drive away over the spectacular Duke’s pass through the Queen Elizabeth forest park.

At Loch Katrine you might wish to join a cruise on the Sir Walter Scott steamship, which also drops off at the far end of the loch, if you wish to go walking or cycling back along Loch Katrine.

On the way back we pass the Deanston distillery

which also runs guided tours.

Through Doune and past the historic Doune castle

which also featured as “Castle Leoch/home of the MacKenzie clan in the Outlander series” and was  used as a historic backdrop to film Monty Python and others.

For your info for another trip of your own, just as an idea, if you wish to visit our great Blair Drummond safari park you would  need a minimum of 2 – 3 hours for that, we could drop you off there) and from the safari park corner of the main road every hour you could take bus number 59 back to Stirling
