Ben Venue in the Heart of The Trossachs offers some great walking and cycling routes with a good opportunity to spot some red deer on the way. Starting from the car park on the Dukes Pass marked Leannach Wood, its possible to get a fairly long circular route with a narrow and steep track on the way back to the car park adding some technical riding on a bike.

Otherwise, its difficult to ride a longish circular route in this part of the forest but its still worth following the path up Ben Venue from Leannach until you reach the end of it and take time to site and watch the hillside for red deer which are usually always in the corrie under the ridge walk from Ledard to the summit of Ben Venue.


Combining The 3 Lochs Drive and Leannach Wood circuit together makes for an arduous but satisfying days cycling starting from The David Marshall Lodge returning partly on The Dukes Pass before heading back into the Loch Achray Forest and back to the Visitor Centre. Check out the interactive map on the Ben Venue page to see the track layout.
