Half a mile north of Aberfoyle, this nature centre has info about the many walks and cycle routes in and around the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park . There are live wildlife cameras offering a peek at osprey and barn owl nests among others. The centre is worth visiting solely for the views. Picturesque but busy waymarked trails start from here, ranging from a light 20-minute stroll to a nearby waterfall – with great interactive play options for kids – to a hilly 4-mile circuit.

The centre has a popular cafe. Also here, Go Ape! will bring out the monkey in you on its exhilarating adventure course of long zip lines, swings and rope bridges through the forest.
