Latest forest information

Three Lochs Forest Drive is now open seven days a week, 9am - 4pm.

Enjoy classic Trossachs scenery from your car

The 7 mile long Forest Drive takes you past three picturesque lochs – Lochan Reòidhte, Loch Drunkie and Loch Achray.

If you can tear your eyes away from the breathtaking Trossachs scenery, watch out for woodland and watery wildlife too. Glimpse deer amongst the trees, listen for the chatter of woodland birds and red squirrels and – if you're lucky – spot an osprey fishing on one of the lochs.

There's something for everyone along the route, including short, easy trails and a picnic site beside peaceful Loch Drunkie. You'll find accessible toilets and plenty of parking there too. Permits for Loch Ard are available from James Bayne fishing tackle shop in Callander and the local post offices.

Activities

Fishing

Loch Drunkie and Loch Achray are both popular fishing spots. You can obtain permits from The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre, James Bayne fishing tackle shop in Callander, and the local post offices.

There is no fishing on Lochan Reòidhte as it is designated as a conservation water.

Camping

Camping wild in the forest can be fun if you're hardy. Read our wild camping tips to find out more. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code also has more information and guidance about how to wild camp responsibly.

Camping is welcome throughout the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park but in order to protect some of our most cherished lochshores, byelaws covering camping and firelighting will come into effect in some parts of the Park between March and September. Camping from October to February is unaffected.
