Aberfoyle is nestled at the foot of the Trossachs in Stirlingshire.
Within a relative short distance you have the Queen Elizabeth Forest and The David Marshall Lodge which is a fantastic vantage point for landscapes of the surrounding countryside, waterfalls and many forest walks. There are plenty of opportunities for wildlife shots and there's also a wardens lodge which has a few bird feeders to attract the local birds.
Further up the Duke's Pass you have access to Loch Drunkie, Loch Venacher, Loch Achray,Loch Katrine, Loch Voil, to name but a few as well as being a short distance from Loch Lomond and Balmaha / Rowardennan.
You can visit Scotland's only lake, The Lake of Menteith whilst meandering across to Callander/Strathyre and onto Balquhidder where the famous highland legend, Rob Roy is buried.
If you so wish, there is even Blair Drummond Safari Park just a few miles outside Callander,where you can see birds of prey, bears, tigers, lions, camels, elephants, zebra and bison and many more animals
All in all, Stirlingshire has a wide range of photo opportunities as well as plentiful eating places and a wide range of accommodation. Stirlingshire and The Trossachs offers a very full,scenic and enjoyable location with so much to see and do, all within a relatively short distance.
Scotland at its best, in my opinion.
