About the Trek - Trossachs

As it strikes midnight the 50km trek gets underway near the pretty village of Aberfoyle. You’ll trek through some of the most challenging and breathtaking landscapes the Trossachs has to offer including Loch Drunkie, Loch Achray and Loch Venachar, through the village of Brig-o-Turk and sections of the Rob Roy Way.  After watching the sun rise, you will push on through the next day, to the finish line to complete an adventure you will never forget. All of this is played out against the awesome backdrop of lochs, glens and majestic mountains.
