So, you’re planning a relaxing weekend away in the Trossachs and you’re excited to have booked Trossachs Ebike Tour’s Loch Katrine Explorer. What other activities could you do near Callander and Aberfoyle? The Trossachs has plenty to offer, but here are our best suggestions. Here are the top 10 things to do in the Trossachs.

Doune Castle – Historic Scotland’s location for Monty Python and Outlander has a hilarious audio tour narrated by the Python’s late Terry Jones.

Deanston Distillery – Whisky distillery set in a historic cotton mill, where processes from mashing to distilling are still carried out by hand. Tours and tastings are a must.

Stirling Castle – Visit the luxurious Royal chambers, interactive displays in the vaults and discover life in the historic kitchens. In our opinion, a better experience than Edinburgh Castle!
