Stronachlachar is a small hamlet that can be found at the far end of Loch Katrine. Historically this was ‘Rob Roy land‘, still standing is Glengyle house originally built by Rob Roy. Stronachlachar has a real sense of ‘splendid isolation’, but in reality is within an hour of Aberfoyle and Callander and is a 5 minute drive from the West Highland way at Inversnaid and the Inversnaid Hotel.
Access to Stronachlachar can be via the main road from Aberfoyle which passes through Kinlochard or on SS Sir Walter Scott which docks daily at the Pier. Alternatively, there is a ‘limited access’ road which runs beside Loch Katrine and is suitable for cycling.
As you cycle along this secluded and peaceful road it is hard to imagine that Loch Katrine has supplied most of Glasgow’s water or that these roads use to be used by four-in-hands the original form of coach travel.
The Stronachlachar Pier tearoom has been operating for 30 years and serves Italian coffee and homemade soups, paninis and baking. Accommodation in this area is mostly on a self-catering basis, the Inversnaid Hotel (Lochs & Glens Holidays) or the Inversnaid Bothy or nearer to Kinlochard.
Whilst Stronachlachar does not have a pub, The Pier Tea Room is fully licenced so diners can enjoy an alcoholic beverage with their meal.
