Should you want a little exercise, then try a walk to Kippen along the Jennywoodston road. You can eat well at three wonderful pubs or cafes, including the Cross Keys, Rhubarb and Lime and also the Inn at Kippen. For a more energetic day, then drive to Kilmahog, past Loch Vennacher and to Brig O Turk and the walk up Ben A’an. Its an easy climb and suitable for all the family of all ages.. Many more walks in the Queen Elizabeth Forrest.
For Culture, then visit Edinburgh and Glasgow. Shopping in Glasgow is reputably the best. Both cities have wonderful museums and art galleries. More than you can cope with in either city if you are only staying with us for a short week. Edinburgh Castle is the most visited tourist attraction in Scotland – Stirling Castle is the second most popular and not far behind in having an amazing history.
