Callander to Balquhidder along the old Callander & Oban Railway
Travel from Callander to Balquhidder on this lovely route on National Cycle Route 7. The route runs for just under 13 miles on a mixture of traffic free paths and woodland trails with a short on road section at the end of the route. Much of the route uses a dismantled section of the old Callander & Oban Railway so is also suitable for walkers as well. It's a reasonably flat route with a couple of moderate climbs along the way. There's much to enjoy with river views, stunning lochs and some attractive woodland trails.
The first section of the ride takes you north along the Garbh Uisge River to the Falls of Leny and Loch Lubnaig. There's a lovely lochside trail to follow to Strathyre where you pick up a country lane to take you into Balquhidder.
In Balquhidder you can extend the ride by picking up a trail along the northern end of Loch Voil. You could also pick up a dismantled railway line to take you to Loch Earn and then through the beautiful to Glen Ogle to Killin.
