Another great local drive to add onto that route is to head out to Loch Katrine, up and over the Dukes Pass several times 8)

Dukes pass is one of the best. Get there early morning or late evening to avoid the bulk of the tourist traffic. It's also popular with cyclists & can get busy daytime.


Apologies, this is probably well known and already been discussed on cptspaulding's thread here:

Think this deserves a thread all on its own. Drove for first time today. The road runs between Callander and Aberfoyle in the Trossachs national park, near Stirling, and passes Loch Venachar & Loch Achray. Tight hairpins, lochside straights, forest canopies, some fair changes in elevation, stunning scenery. It's amazing.
