Loch Venachar

Stirling | Trossachs | Loch | ★★★

[Loch Venachar from the north bank]

If you're heading into the depths of the Trossachs from the east side, leave some time in your itinerary to pause at Loch Venachar: a popular sailing destination with great views for the rest of us. Ben Ledi and the Menteith Hills provide barriers to the north and south, so access is from the east or west. The A821 traces the loch's north bank for a mile or so, with a couple of parking areas providing access to the waterside. For the ultimate escape, the south side has a cycle track for its whole length - hire a bike from nearby Wheels Cycling Centre at Gartchonzie.
