After experiencing extreme difficulties with pre booked accommodation (Which we found to be nothing like advertised or described) After exploring other many options around the area no other accommodation was available we visited the I centre and met Colin and Sara who showed immediate concern, kindness and perseverance in helping us secure accommodation for our stay in the area. Nothing was too much trouble and basically myself and wife felt they went over and above all expectations. Well done and thank you both and credit to visit Scotland.

A day trip to the beautiful Trossachs and stopped in at the Visitor Centre for info on walks at Loch Ard and Lochan Spling. Collette and Gillian were really helpful with suggestions, providing a map and directions. Will be back to cover some of the other walks suggested. Thank you ladies

My favourite part is the local pub as it has lovely beer garden and serves the most delicious food at great prices. It's a lovely little village and ppl really nice. Has lots to do for everyone from cycling, parks and Go Ape adventure park.

Hello Margo M, We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit the village of Aberfoyle and surrounding area. You are so right there is something for everyone from a gentle lochside walk or cycle to the more adventurous Go Ape adventure park in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, along with some fantastic restaurants and cafés serving delicious homemade food. Hopefully it won’t be too long until our lovely friendly locals get the chance to welcome you back again, and if we can help you with further ideas on what else you can see and do in the area please pop into the Aberfoyle iCentre where the team would be eager to help. Thank you

My husband and I visited the ALBERFOYLE Visitor Centre in October for information on the area. We initially spoke to Susy who was helpful and suggested we speak to Colin. He couldn’t have been more helpful and went out of his way to give us advice, suggestions and information on our proposed trip. His knowledge of the area which he enthusiastically passed on was amazing. Thank you so much.

Came to the visitor centre looking for help on how to reach Ben A'an. A small challenge when you don't have a car. However, what I thought to be a challenge became one of the best experiences while backpacking. Colin quickly gave me advice and a taxi number to get me there and back. When I told him I wanted to try to get a ride from someone instead, he showed me some maps and gave me directions on the best way to do it. Such a lovely embracing experience today with Colin and Sarah. I made it to Ben A'an and back safe, super happy and accomplished with my experience. Thank you both!

They have a great selection of souvenirs, plus they have free single sheet of paper maps. One of these maps we found better than any we had purchased.

We walked past about 1400 on Christmas Eve thinking we would go in later. When we returned it had closed early for Christmas.

There were a lot of tourists in the area and it is the staffs Christmas as well but they depend on the tourists for trade in the area.
