Macdonald Hotels in Aberfoyle

About Our Macdonald Hotel in Aberfoyle

Ever since Sir Walter Scott put it on the map in his novels, this small town in The Trossachs has attracted visitors in their droves. Some come to cruise the length of the stunning Loch Katrine on the classic steamer 'The Lady of the Lake'. Others prefer to bike around the loch, stopping for a picnic or just to appreciate the natural surroundings that so inspired Scott.

Aberfoyle's surroundings are also the setting for all the outdoor pursuits you can think of, including the chance to zoom down the UK's longest zipwire at the nearby tree-top adventure playground. In town, look out for the tradition of hanging a poker in a tree, inspired by Rob Roy and his local exploits. The annual mushroom festival is a more palatable custom.

Not far from Aberfoyle, there's the only lake in Scotland, Menteith. On it, you'll find the ruins of Inchmahome Priory frequented by regular royal visitor to these parts, Mary Queen of Scots.
