Forming part of the Trossachs National Park, Breadalbane (the High Country) is the ancient majestic heart of Scotland with a landscape characterised by rocky outcrops, gullies and glens that cut through the hills with fast flowing burns and waterfalls. The historic village of Crianlarich has been an important staging post on various transport routes linking central and north-western Scotland since medieval times and is a popular base for ‘Munro Baggers’ – hill and mountain climbers who seek to conquer all of Scotland’s ‘Munros’, a list of Scottish mountains over 3,000 ft !!

 

Our base for the tour is the very comfortable BEST WESTERN CRIANLARICH HOTEL which is centrally located in the heart of the village. Features of the hotel include an AA Rosette awarded Conservatory Restaurant and Highland Lounge with log burning fire along with a bar where drinks and snacks are served throughout the day. All of the well furnished en suite bedrooms (some with mountain views) have tv, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
