Route Description:

Starting in the town of Aberfoyle, a popular stop for tourists visiting the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, we begin our bike tour with a fairly relaxed cycle on tarmac roads along the banks of Loch Ard, with great views of Ben Lomond looming in the distance. Our route then gains elevation as it passes Loch Chon, before leveling out to give a perfect view point of one of the dramatic mountain landscapes around. The road then descends towards the hamlet of Stronalachar, situated on the banks Loch Katrine, where we stop for some delicious homemade food and a coffee at the Pier Cafe, while taking in the stunning views across Loch Katrine and the Highlands.

Refueled and watered the next stage of our bike tour skirts around the north shore of Loch Katrine, along a very quiet and well maintained local access road. The route dips and rises along the length of the Loch Katrine, giving a different view of the loch at the top of each rise. Have a thoughtful moment as we pass the walled graveyard of the MacGregor clan,.where the family of folk hero 'Rob Roy' have been burying their dead for hundreds of years. If you're lucky enough, you might also see the SS Sir Walter Scott steamship chugging her way along Loch Katrine. This fine looking passenger ship has been ferrying tourists around the loch since 1900.
