Stronachlacher is a small hamlet situated at the north end of Loch Katrine. Historically this was 'Rob Roy land', still standing is Glengyle house originally built by Rob Roy. Stronachlacher has a real sense of 'splendid isolation', but in reality is within an hour of Aberfoyle and Callander and is a 5 minute drive from the West Highland way at Inversnaid and the Inversnaid Hotel.
The SS Sir Walter Scott boat runs from the Trossachs pier to Stronachlachar and back once a day.
As you cycle along this secluded and peaceful road it is hard to imagine that Loch Katrine has supplied most of Glasgow's water or that these roads use to be used by four-in-hands the original form of coach travel.
The Stronachlachar Pier tearoom has been operating for 30 years and serves Italian coffee and homemade soups, paninis and baking. Accomodation in this area is mostly on a self-catering basis, the Inversnaid Hotel (Lochs & Glens Holidays) or the Inversnaid Bothy or nearer to Kinlochard.
