Aberfoyle is a charming village on the banks of the River Forth, in the magnificent Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. The village, once important for its slate quarries, quickly developed into the southern gateway of The Trossachs, following the publication of Walter Scott’s ‘The Lady of the Lake’. Today, its distinct Victorian architecture remains a feature of the village.
Aberfoyle is a popular holiday village with an attractive main street, well served by shops, cafés and restaurants.
Nearby is the Scottish Wool Centre, which tells the full story of wool, from sheep to the shops, through live sheep shows and handson demonstrations of spinning and working sheepdogs.
