The Old Drymen Road is a single track road between Drymen and the Village of Gartmore and was once a Drovers Trail. It is very quiet and mainly traffic free and offers some great views along the way. About halfway between the two villages there is a car park signposted on both sides of the road where parking is free. From the car park there are good walking and cycle tracks on both sides of the road, the longer route heading out towards High Corrie. This is a circular route but its possible to travel all the way to Aberfoyle or Kinlochard off road with the help of a map.

Both routes are usually very quiet and you can enjoy a great day cycling without seeing another person. After a good walk or cycle you can head in either direction to Gartmore or Drymen and enjoy a nice meal and drink in a good pub.

High Corrie Walking and Cycling Routes
Part forest, part tarmac road. Some loose material on sections of the forest road. Miniumum width 2.5m. Head into Loch Ard Forest along the tarred road which follows the line of one of two tunnels that take Glasgow's water supply from Loch Katrine to Milngavie. The route takes you through quite a variety of surroundings from the forest edge adjacent to farm land and open space along the line of the tunnel to enclosed confier plantation and native woodland. When you're not enclosed the views are superb. Pick out the line of the Highland Boundary Fault through Aberfoyle and the Meneith Hills. You can see the Lake of Menteith and on towards Stirling - the Castle and the Wallace Monument on a clear day. In the distance Ben Lomond marks the western extent of Loch Ard Forest.
Badivow Walking and Cycling Routes
Part forest road, part tarmac road. Some loose material on sections of the forest road. Minimum width 2.5m. Take a walk along the eastern edge of Loch Ard Forest. Much of this part of the forest is young second rotation conifer. The young trees, along with large areas of open ground and burnside native woodland allow plenty of views of the surrounding countryside. From Ben Lomond in the west across Loch Ard Forest to the Menteith hills and the Carse of Stirling

Many of the Forestry Commission Scotland's trails and forest roads are suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Please show consideration and courtesy to everyone you meet. Some trails and paths are less suited to cyclists and horse riders because of the gradients and surfaces. Please behave responsibily in helping us to maintain these routes.

Please remember also that forests are working landscapes and that forestry vehicles also use these roads.
