Loch Venachar is situated in the heart of the Trossachs between Callander and Brig o‘ Turk. The Loch gets fed with water from Loch Achray on the west and gets discharged on the east where the Loch joins River Leny.

 

As a renowned fishing location, Loch Venachar is regularly stocked with brown and rainbow trout; fishing permits which are available from numerous local outlets allow fishing from both the shore and by boat. The loch provides many ideal and interesting bays to fish. At its western end long uninterrupted drifts can be achieved, casting into a depth of 6 to 8 feet - great conditions for Brown Trout. There is an abundance of invertebrate life providing good feeding for fish.

 

Besides fishing there are some more outdoor activities such as sailing, hill-walking, and cycling. Accessible from the Invertrossachs Road is the Venachar Sailing Club. The sailing Club has a training centre and organizes Sailing events between March and October. On the north of the loch are car parks and picnic spots. For those who enjoy cycling there is are cycle tracks around the loch which lead to Callander, Brig ö‘ Turk or other interesting places in the Trossachs.

 

Around the loch are walking paths which go through woodland or lead to the hills and mountains such as the popular Ben Ledi or Ben Venue and Ben A’an next to Loch Achray. Ben Ledi is just north of Loch Venachar and offers fantastic views to the Trossachs. Ben A'an one of Scotland's most popular smaller hills known as the mountain in minature as just a small drive away From the top you get a wonderful view down Loch Katrine.
