First time in a Forest Cabin and pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. We booked a 3 bedroom Golden Oak for ourselves and 2 grandsons so they decided to be alone in separate rooms - probably a good idea judging by the experience of 4 in one room while travelling there and back. We only went on the Dusk Watch - could not persuade them to do the other Forest Ranger activities - but everyone including the slightly disabled 10 year old enjoyed it although we didn't hear/see many bats. The surroundings were magnificent and the boys spent all their time on site playing with new friends either in the play area or trying to catch the baby fish in the loch or skimming stones. There are lots of things to do around such as the steamer on Loch Katrine, Stirling Castle, Callander Leisure Centre (for swimming). Although the waymarked forest trails were a little difficult for these youngsters, the site is on the line of the old Callander and Oban Railway so flat walking to the north and south. We walked north towards Strathyre village one day (did not get there) and south past the Falls of Leny to Kilmahog (1 mile north of Callander) for ice cream another day. The shop had or could order most things but for meat, fish, vegetables, etc then you need to get these somewhere else. All in all a good place to holiday.
