Things to do in Gargunnock

35 minutes’ drive from us at Loch Lomond Waterfront lies the village of Gargunnock, on the edge of Stirling city. It is a good stopping point on the way to Stirling. With a local pub and restaurant and some great walks to enjoy.

Village pub and architecture

The Gargunnock Inn is the local pub, in the centre of the village. A family-run business that offers hearty food and a fine selection of ales, wines and whiskies. The historic building dates from the 17th century, and it is now the only remaining pub in the village.

The village has a war memorial. Erected in 1919 to honour those who lost their lives in World War One. With additional names added after World War Two. It also has a 17th century parish church with later added stained glass windows.

Local walks and attractions

Gargunnock sits at the foot of the Gargunnock Hills, a range of hills made up of volcanic rock, with a craggy escarpment that overlooks the glen of the River Forth. 

With access from near the Gargunnock Inn, you can take a walk to Dounie’s Loup, a waterfall which cascades down the cliff edge below the hills. There is also a small cave to explore here.

Gargunnock Gardens are open from March to September, and also on certain dates during the Snowdrop Festival each winter/spring. This is an established house garden and walled garden with lovely woodland walks, and has something different to offer each season.

After exploring the local villages near Loch Loch Lomond, you can soon be back at your luxury accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront. Here, you’re able to relax in your private outdoor hot tub, soak up the scenery and enjoy some peace and tranquillity.
