David Marshall Lodge, Aberfoyle

  • About

The Visitor Centre is the best place to start exploring Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.

This impressive building, locally known by its original name, the David Marshall Lodge, was gifted to the Forestry Commission in 1960 by the Carnegie Trust. The David Marshall Lodge offers some of the most spectacular views in the area, including a stunning view across Loch Ard Forest to Ben Lomond.

This is the ideal base from which to explore the forest environment. Waymarked paths starting from here range from half a mile to a four mile trek.

The views from the Lodge are spectacular, taking in the Campsie Hills, Ben Lomond and across Loch Ard Forest.

The visitor centre is also the location of the Go Ape! high wire adventure course.

Take time to enjoy a meal or a cake in the Cafe and for that special souvenir, pop into the forest shop where you can purchase locally made crafts, as well as good quality souvenirs and gifts.

Wildlife Watch offers Live CCTV images beamed from different locations within the forest. You may be lucky enough to see Buzzards, Red Squirrels, Peregrines and even Ospreys (see Aberfoyle Ospreys link on the right for more information).
