Overview

A gentle walk from Aberfoyle taking in the River Forth and Lochan Spling.

Start in the large car park behind the Woollen Mill and from there we walk what used to be an old railway line until we reach Cobleland.  The River Forth is alongside for the next section before we take right turn towards Kirkton. We follow the Rob Roy Way for a distance and then cross Mary Queen of Scots Way, before reaching Lochan Spling.

Return to Aberfoyle is by way of Mary Queen of Scots Way to Kirkton and eventually Aberfoyle.
