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.

  • 40th celebration

    'My husband and I came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and we truly had a magnificent time. There was everything that you needed in your accommodation even washing liquid and conditioner for the washing machine. The hot tub and steam room were a real highlight as well as the living log fire.'
  • Right up there with the best

    'We have travelled the world and stayed in all sorts of accommodation - Loch Lomond Waterfront is right up there with the best. The facilities, quality of fixtures and fittings and the setting all add up to a superb holiday experience and one that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Outstanding!'
  • Thank you doesn't seem enough

    'The food, service, timing of the day – everything was wonderful and exactly as planned!  From the day we first visited the venue we knew it was the perfect place for our reception and we definitely did not make the wrong choice.  Thank you just does not seem enough!'
  • Stunning from top to bottom

    'We booked this to relax after a family tragedy and it was the perfect tonic. Stunning from top to bottom. The rooms were perfect with all the facilities needed. The hot tub on a winters evening took it to another level. The blackout curtains, allied to no light pollution outside, meant wakening up was the most natural I had experienced for years.'
  • Such a beautiful setting

    'Myself and my partner recently stayed in Drummond Lodge (from 21-24 Feb) and we just wanted to say thank you so much for a lovely stay. We loved our lodge, it was like a home from home, and we really didn’t want to leave! It was spotlessly clean and in such a beautiful setting. All the staff we met were really friendly. We also loved Balmaha, what a wonderful village. So thank you very much! We are the couple that took Flynn for a walk and we took this photo of him... we thought you’d appreciate a copy. Thanks once again...
