Local Area

At Forest Hills you can experience the very best of Scotland on your doorstep. We're surrounded by lochs, mountains and forests and even have castles and distilleries nearby. 

Within Aberfoyle, just 4 miles along the loch, you'll find a range of great shops plus a few pubs and restaurants. Further afield and Callander is worth visiting for locally produced gifts, art and artisan produce. For those who like a wee tipple we recommend three distilleries within the area; McQueen Gin, Deanston Whisky and Glengoyne.

For great walks, bike trails, ranger activities and more visit the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, just up the hill from Aberfoyle village. This 50,000-acre forest park extends from the eastern shores of Loch Lomond to the mountains of Strathyre and has a wonderful visitor centre and cafe with stunning views across the Trossachs.

If you're looking to get really active then visit our neighbours Go Country. Their wide range of activities include a fabulous floating water park, paddle boarding, canoe and kayak hire.  Go Country can also arrange bike hire, guided hikes, archery, rafting and more.  Just north of Aberfoyle you'll also find Go Ape, where the really brave can explore the forest canopy via a treetop rope course and the UK's longest zip line!

If its Scottish history you're here to explore then both Doune Castle and Stirling Castle are within a one hour drive of Forest Hills.
