Walk Instructions

Start Point

Braeval Car Park. From Tigh Mor, drive over the Duke's Pass to Aberfoyle. At the foot of the hill, by the bank, turn left along the main street and continue out of the village heading to Stirling & Glasgow. At the roundabout by the Rob Roy Motel, take the 1st exit (signed Stirling) and in about ½ mile, just beyond the golf course, the Braeval car park is on your left - NN541006.

Walk Instructions

Several tracks and paths lead out from this car park. To find the correct one, go to the track which leads up from the road and stand with your back to the road. The track you want is at about “2 o' clock” and has a metal barrier across it. Start off up this track.

At the fork in 300m (4 mins), keep left and in a further 300m (4 mins) come to Point 1 (NN545010) - a T junction on a sharp left elbow.

Keep left here and continue up hill. In about 100m (1-2 mins) a path joins on the left and in a further 200m there is a fork. Keep right and in a further 50m (1 mins) ignore a track doubling back on your right.

Continue for a further 400m (4 mins) to reach an-other fork at Point 2 (NN539011).

Keep right, still ascending steadily. In about 400m (6 mins), Point 3 (NN538014) there is a distinct left hand bend across a burn. Keep right at the fork just afterwards and continue the steady ascent.

In about 700m (11 mins) at a sharp left hand bend, ignore the path going straight ahead (for the time being) and follow the major track for a further 100m (1 min) to Point 4 (NN535019) - the top of Lime Craig.

Retrace your steps for 100 (1 min) to the sharp bend and this time turn left onto the path, dropping quite steeply to Point 5 (NN523019) in about 300m (5 mins). Ignore the path dropping steeply on your left and continue downhill on the main track.

In about 400m (5 mins) there is an informal view-point on your left looking out over Aberfoyle. In about 700m (10 mins), shortly after a distinct right hand bend, reach Point 6 (NN526022) - a major crossroads.

Turn left downhill in about 500m (8 mins) you will see the ‘Go Ape' ropes course on your right. Continue downhill to Point 7 (NN526017) - a T junction on a sharp right elbow. Keep right, still heading downhill and in about 70m (1 min) there is a path on the left which goes past a small building. Follow this path down through oak woodland to join a track at Point 8 (NN527015) in 300m 3-4 mins).

Turn left, and in 300m (4 mins) ignore the path going steeply uphill on your left. Just after this, ignore the track on your right going down to the Dounans Outdoor Centre.

Carry straight on passing above the golf course and in 800m (12 mins) cross a burn after which a path can be seen ascending to the left. Ignore it, and continue along the track for another 600m (9 mins) to Point 9 (NN541008) - a junction with an indistinct path leading downhill to your right.

(If you overshoot this junction, you will come back onto the track on which you set our earlier - between Point 1 & Point 2. In this case it is probably simplest to keep going back to Point 1 and then back to the car park from there).

Follow this path downhill for 300m (4 mins) back to the car park.
