Looking for a foresty area I went to Strathyre, stopping along the way at Loch Awe, and driving all the way around Loch Earn just for fun.

The town of Strathyre seemed to be a bit over its peak. I did a walk but that was quite boring over a paved road, perhaps I took a boring route and there might be nicer ones.
The B&B was lovely, and I took my time to relax, read in the nice garden, and watch some films later at night.

The following day on my way back to Glasgow I stopped in Callander which was a nice little town despite comments about it being overrun with tourists (I guess in summer it is, but it was quiet now). I spent an hour reading and having coffee in a pretty little cafe frequented by locals.

I also stopped at Doune Castle where some scenes of Monty Python and the Holy Grail were taped! I prefered visiting a low-key castle instead of the completely renovated one in Stirling.
I did stop in Stirling to have an early dinner but it was quite a disappointing city. I walked around a bit after a sandwich, saw a few nice buildings... but then left for Glasgow, the end of my trip!
