Balquhidder

Balquhidder Glen extends westwards for 12 miles from the main A84 at a point a little south of Lochearnhead. It is a true cul-de-sac, with its western end concluding in the complex mountainous country north of Loch Katrine and south of Ben More.

The first problem for visitors is simply finding the Glen. To reach it you need to turn off the A84 not to the west, but to the east, at the Kingshouse Hotel. From here the road leads past a superb old signpost that predates the upgrading of the A84, through an underpass beneath the "new" road, and out into the Glen itself.

The picture shows the old signpost standing by what was once part of the A84. For more information and photographs, see the Balquhidder Feature Page.
