Walking and Sightseeing
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park offers some of the best and most varied walks anywhere in the UK. From gentle strolls around one of the many lochs to challenging hill climbs, the scenery is breath taking and once experienced will leave you with a yearning to return.
Cycling and Canoeing
Cycling in the national park can be as beautiful and challenging as you would like it to be. Meandering along the village cycle path on the converted old railway line you can head north all the way to Strathyre, Crianlarich and the highland way. There are also mountain bike trails in forests around the village and access to these is easy. We can arrange bike hire delivered directly to the hotel. For canoeists there is a whole world of adventure on our doorstep with many large lochs and rivers stretching across the national park.

A nice 'run' on our stretch of the teith
We have our own salmon, seatrout and brown trout fishing on the River Teith which is free for resident guests and available to non-residents at a rate of £25 per rod per day. Fishing is also available on the renowned Landrick estate four miles downstream as well as at Gart Farm and Cambusmore. In addition to salmon fishing on the Teith, we can also arrange fishing on both the River Earn, and the River Tay as well as loch fishing for wild brown trout.
With prior notice we can organise a ghillie to guide you and if needed instruct at a cost of £60 for a half day and £100 for a full day. One ghillie is able to guide up to four fisherfolk. We can also hire equipment for you and arrange transport if required.
There is a riding stable within a ten minute drive of the hotel where we can help you hire ponies for hacking and trekking. There are also many other stables throughout the national park where ponies and horses can be hired or group trekking organised. Riding lessons can also be organised.

Winter Shooting and Stalking Parties
The Roman Camp was first built as a hunting lodge and retains much of the atmosphere that those early sportsmen and women must have experienced a century ago. With notice, shooting and stalking can be arranged by the hotel with local landowners. We also do winter packages for shooting and stalking parties.
