I hadn't actually heard of Aberfoyle before this trip - I didn't realise what a trreat I was in for!
Aberfoyle is a small and friendly village in Loch Lomand and The Trossachs National Park. Wherever you look/walk or travel you get to enjoy stunning and lush countryside.
We did lochs, we did woodland, we did hills - all in two days! I took hundreds of photos - the scenery is so dramatic.
As an outdoorsy person it was a very easy place to holiday - there's lots of brochures available in the village with maps of local trails to do and there's a handy visitors lodge up in the woodland a ten minute walk away. There's also a Go Ape by the lodge for the more adventurous types!
If I'd have had more time I would definitely have hired a bike from the local bike shop - there were plenty of places to have biking adventures. Next time...
'12 On The Hill' our holiday home was perfectly situated literally a minute's walk from the village where there's a huge Co-op, a pub that serves excellent food (The Forth Inn) and McGregors Coffee shop (the cakes looked tremendous!).
The house itself was a very sociable space for my holiday with my friends because of the huge and beautiful lounge/living room. I was very taken with this room. The glorious corner sofa became my favourite resting place! And the large rustic dining table was a cosy gathering place for meals. The room itself is very tastefully decorated in warm greys and browns which compliments the views of the mountains and woodland from the window. The rest of the house was great too, but the lounge was the showstopper for me!
I'd highly recommend 12 On The Hill as a holiday location - the house itself would suit friends, families and couples as the lounge is so vesatile and large. And Aberfoyle is a delightful, friendly village to base yourself for an scenic holiday in this National Park.
