Walk Instructions

Start Point

Little Drum Car park. Turn left from Tigh Mor to head towards Callander, pass Brig o' Turk and also the Glen Finglas car park & visitor centre. Little Drum is on the right hand side. Approx 2.5 miles from Tigh Mor.

Leave the car park by the vehicular entrance, following olive/blue wayposts, turn right and walk 100m (1 min) to the end of the pavement. Cross the road and pass through the kissing gate (more olive/blue wayposts) onto a sometimes muddy path. In less than 100m, keep left at another waypost. The path now improves, passes behind Lendrick Lodge, bends to the right and starts to ascend to a metal gate in a deer fence where there is a convenient seat from which you can enjoy fine views down Loch Venachar and along to Ben Venue. Approx 500m (7 mins) from the car park.

Continue up the path and in 2-3 minutes pass a cairn, a seat & another waypost. Continue to ascend steadily through replanted native woodland till you come to T junction from where you can look across Loch Venachar to Loch Drunkie, nestling in the hills in approx 500m (7-8 mins) from the gate in the deer fence. Grid Reference NN553067. You have now finished the steepest of the climbing.

Turn left, still following olive/blue wayposts. The path levels off and you contour along the hillside in a generally NW direction. In approx 200m (3 mins) pass through a gap in a stone wall - the old Head Dyke of the crofting community. In a further 250m (3-4 mins) you will come to a big rowan tree on your left, just before the track crosses the burn. On your right is a path with a blue waypost leading towards Stuc Odhar. (Although this is a nice extension on a fine day, note that the track is only wayposted to the edge of the woodland. After that you are on open hillside with no established track and are responsible for your own navigation. This entails an extra 5Km with approx 450m of ascent - allow 2 hours extra). Carry on across the burn, following the olive wayposts and descend to a T junction at Point 1 (NN545070) in about another 500m (7-8 mins).

For those who want a shorter walk, you can turn left here and follow the olive wayposts down to the Glen Finglas car park, from where you can follow the pink/olive/blue wayposts along the path on the north side of the road back to Lendrick and Little Drum. Approx 1 Km.

Turn right uphill past a seat, following orange/pink wayposts. In 150m (2-3 mins), just before a bridge over a burn, a small path on the left leads approx 50m down to a viewpoint. Continue contouring around the hillside and in about 800m (12 mins) you will pass under some power lines and a few minutes later pass under them again. In another 800m (12mins), as you descend through birch woodland, look out for some stone memorial seats on the left. This is a fine spot to take a break and to admire the view across the Loch Finglas dam. In another 150m (2-3 mins), pass through a gate in a deer fence and drop down to the Glen Finglas Road at Point 2 (NN531083).

For those wanting a longer walk, turn right and walk along by the loch.......for as far as you fancy before turning round and returning to this point.

Turn left, following orange wayposts, and start to descend down the road towards Brig o'Turk. This is a quiet road, but be aware that there may be occasional vehicles using it. In about 300m (5 mins) there is a drystone viewpoint on the right - another pleasant spot to take a break with lovely views up the loch towards Meall Cala. At the foot of the hill in a further 800m (12 mins) you join the public road where there is a small car park, with an information board and leaflets.

Keep left towards the village. Continue on past the school to Brig o' Turk's famous tea room and a T junction with the main road in approx 1 Km (15mins). Grid Reference NN536066).

Cross the main road onto a pavement & turn left. In about 250m (3-4 mins) where the pavement ends keep to the right, following blue wayposts along the path, across a driveway and in another 200m (3 mins) there is a wooden gate on your right at Point 3 (NN540066). From here there is a choice of two routes back to the Little Drum car park. Both are about 1 Km, the first option is easier walking.

a) Carry on past the gate. In approx 100m (1-2 mins) you come back to the main road. Cross over, through the gate and take the path to the right (blue/pink wayposts) across a boardway. This is a good path which follows the line of road past the Glen Finglas car park & visitor centre, and on to Little Drum.

b) Go through the gate and follow pink wayposts across an often muddy field which sometimes has cattle in it. In about 500m (7-8 mins) enter mixed woodland, descend some stone steps, pass through a gate and in a further 250m (2-3 mins) you come to a log seat at a T junction at Point 4 Turn left and you will arrive back at the Little Drum car park in another 300m (3-4 mins).
