Walk Instructions

Start Point

The Lodge. (Forestry Commission visitor centre - previously known as the David Marshall Lodge).

Turn right out of Tigh Mor and follow the A821 towards Aberfoyle. The lodge is on your left, about ½ mile short of Aberfoyle as you descend towards the village. NN517015.

Pay & Display parking. Toilets, cafe & gift shop at the lodge.

Walk Instructions

Start at the front door of the lodge. Walk down the driveway and in less than 100m, just after a slate built cottage, turn right down a footpath towards the lochan and the car park.

Pass a ‘Pay & Display' machine on your right then in less than 50m where the road takes a left turn, turn sharp right, down a path.

In a few metres (½ min) ignore a board walk on your right. In about a further 150m (2 min) keep left, uphill past a blue waypost at a fork just before a small stone bridge - Point 1 (NN521017).

The path ascends gradually following the line of a burn and past a seat on your left. In about 500m (8 mins) cross the main road - there are wooden barriers at each side. This is the A821 - the road across the Duke's Pass to Tigh Mor.

In about 300m (4 mins) ignore the path on your left between two blue wayposts. You will now traverse the hillside travelling roughly parallel to the road and with the old tramway from the slate quarries above you.

In about 500m (8 mins), at a sharp right bend, ignore the faint path on the left and start downhill, past a blue waypost, towards the road. The path zig-zags gently downhill and in another 500m (8 mins) you will cross the road again at Point 2 (NN518027).

Pass a green metal barrier onto a forestry track and in about 1 minute it bends to the right to run parallel to the road. Ignore the track on the left in about 400m (6 mins). In about 1 Km (15 mins) you will come to a cross roads at Point 3 (NN526022). Turn right, downhill past a blue/red waypost and in about 400m (6 mins) you will a see a waterfall and viewpoint on your right.

Continue down the main track ignoring a mountain bike trail on your left and in 200m (3 mins) or so you will pass the ‘Go Ape' ropes course on your right & another mountain bike trail on your left.

Continue downhill for about 300m (5 mins) to Point 4 (NN526017) - a T junction on a sharp right elbow.

Keep right, following the blue/red wayposts downhill, ignoring a path on your left in about 1 min. In 300m (4 min), cross over the burn by a wooden bridge and turn right towards the waterfall.

From the waterfall ignore the boardwalk with the white/green/blue/red waypost and instead fork right to follow the blue wayposts uphill, back to Point 1 in about 300m (4 mins).

From here carry straight on to the car park in 150m (2 mins).
