Overview

The Visitor Gateway is open every day from 10:00am till 4:00pm between April and October. We close for the winter months (October till April)but you can still experience the sights and sounds of the Great Trossachs Forest, by walking the way marked trails to see beautiful scenery and iconic wildlife. The Woodland Trust Scotland's Visitor Gateway at Glen Finglas estate features a range of information about our work to restore native woodland habitat. You can download an app to your tablet or smartphone to help you explore the area, find out more about our work on the estate, and pick up leaflets about other attraction in this stunning part of Scotland. Glen Finglas forms part of The Great Trossachs Forest, one of the most significant woodland regeneration projects to take place in a generation, which stretches from just outside Callander to the shores of Loch Lomond.

We visited on a sunny day, had a look round the Gateway, used the facilities and then chose one of the waymarked walks. It was beautiful to walk through the woods which were stunning, being full of bluebells and then on up to a viewpoint....More

We were dropped off here for a walk into Callander. The maps are easy to understand and there are quite a few things aimed at little ones (even off on the walks).

Lots of information, clean, tidy loo, free wifi. What more could you want? Oh yes, the weather, but that's not the VC fault! Trossachs still amazing in the rain.

From the car park the steep climb takes you to 600 metres asl and the views back towards Loch Venachar are staggering, the walk takes about two hours taking in some fine scenery and ending up at the huge reservoir and then a stroll downhill...More

A walk with friends starting at the visitors centre. Paths ; dry with good footing were well marked and gradually gained height over magnificent views of the valley below; Loch Venacher and the Glen Finglas reservoir were reached on the way to Brig O Turk.
