When you leave Thornhill head for Callander http://www.incallander.co.uk/trossachs_katrine.htm#trossachs
Leave Callander on the A84 north, at Kilmahog take left on to the A821 past the Lade Inn http://www.theladeinn.com/ continue along Loch Venachar to Brig o' Turk
http://brigoturktearoom.co.uk/ http://www.byreinn.co.uk/ after which you will have the option to take a stop at the east end of Loch Katrine before continuing along "The Dukes Pass" to Aberfoyle. When you arrive in Aberfoyle take right onto the B829 and head to Stronachlachar. This is a single track road so take care and best to ride only in small groups. The road is a dead end taking you to either Inversnaid on the east side of Loch Lomond or Stronachlacher on the west side of Loch Katrine where you will find the Pier Cafe http://www.thepiercafe.com/
After relaxing for a while here head back down the road to Aberfoyle, continue through Aberfoyle and take a left on to the A81 past the Lake of Mentith (the only "Lake" in Scotland!) and then on the A873 through Ruskie and back to Thornhill.
Enjoy the experience of the Trossachs and send us some nice photos for the gallery
