Welcome to The Villages in The Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park

welcome to {village-name}

Tyndrum is situated in Strathfillan, at the southern edge of Rannoch Moor. Tyndrum is Taigh an Druim in Gaelic, which translates as the house on the ridge. The village is overshadowed by Ben Lui, a Scottish Munro (i.e. a mountain over 3000 feet).

 

Like many of the villages in the Trossachs National Park, Tyndrum is steeped in history. The village is built over a battlefield: in 1306 AD, clan MacDougall defeated Robert the Bruce and took from him the Brooch of Lorne. Tyndrum is also a former lead and gold mining centre, when it was known as the hamlet of Clifton and consisted of but a few mining cottages. The actual gold mine is now a visitors attraction, located 2 miles south-west of Tyndrum at Cononish Farm. Tyndrum also has 2 railway stations and 2 railway lines which arrived in the 1800s (and has been famous as the smallest settlement in Britain to be served by 2 railway lines).

 

The West Highland Way passes through Tyndrum before heading north towards Bridge of Orchy and Rannoch Moor on the old military road. In addition, Tyndrum also serves as a stop off point for the Coast to Coast Walk from Oban to St. Andrews. The village has a tourist information centre, the Green Welly Stop and a brightly coloured mini-market.

Tyndrum was formerly a mining centre for Gold. Scotgold is applying to have permission to reopen the mine 4kms to the west of Tyndrum but to date the National Park Authority has now passed the plans to go ahead with the the application.

 

From Tyndrum you can head north towards Glen Coe and Fort William, or you can choose to head West towards Oban.
