Callander and Achray forest is a new SMBO event location for 2012. With woods and trails, open hillside and amazing views heading across the Menteith Hills into the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park it makes for a wonderful playground.
For solos and generations of all abilities there are technical and less strenuous route choices. There are miles of tracks unmarked on OS maps surveyed for this course to provide more route options and give new interest – local advantage? Maybe not!
Facilities at the McLaren include changing and hot showers. Families and friends can enjoy the leisure facilities or explore Callander blossoming in the springtime.
