Aberfoyle

Stirling | Village |

[Scottish Wool Centre; Aberfoyle beyond]

Aberfoyle is right at the southern edge to the Trossachs, on the Highland Boundary Fault at the foot of beautiful Duke's Pass. We don't rate it as highly as the alternative gateway town of Callander to the east (it's a tiny place and can be overwhelmed by high season tourists), but there's plenty to do in the immediate area surrounding the village. Except in winter, the Scottish Wool Centre runs fun and free livestock demonstrations three times daily: worth watching if your visit happens to coincide with one. There's also a spacious tourist information centre and several places to eat including a great chippy. The local walking is also excellent, no matter your ability or ambition.
