Your National Park adventure starts IN CALLANDER


The easiest way to get to Inversnaid is over the loch by ferry. Inversnaid is one of the many places in this area which can rightfully be described as 'the end of the road' - and a long road at that. To get to Inversnaid by car you must first get to Aberfoyle and then follow the largely single track B829 road for 10 very scenic but testing blind humped miles to a T junction near Loch Arklet then turn right for a further 4 miles before dropping steeply to the car park at Inversnaid.

But it is worth it!

At Inversnaid you can take a walk north or south on the 'West Highland Way' and get a small taste of the pleasures enjoyed by those who 'do' the complete walk.

A few hundred yards north of Inversnaid on the WHW is 'Rob Roy's Cave' where the famed highland outlaw is reputed to have hidden from his pursuers. In the other direction, almost in front of the hotel is a bridge over the Arklet Water just below q beautiful waterfall.

About 1 mile east of Inversnaid is the ruinous remains of Inversnaid Garrison - the fort which was built by government forces during the time of Rob Roy McGregor. Legend has it that Rob Roy was instrumental in destroying the fort by bursting a dam in the hills above the garrison so that the flood waters undermined the fort, causing it to collapse.
