Located just 6 miles north-east of Loch Lomond in Perthshire, Scotland, the small village of Crianlarich lies within the Stirling council area and is a much-loved tourist destination. Thanks to Crianlarich railway station as well as the A85 and A82 roads, there are connections to Oban, Fort William, Perth and Glasgow. In fact, the village sits about half-way between Glasgow and Fort William.
For railway enthusiasts this is the place to be! The village serves as a stop for the West Highland Line, and the trip to Crianlarich is widely regarded as the most scenic railway journey in the world.
The Gaelic name means “low pass” and Crianlarich has long proclaimed itself to be the “gateway into the Highlands”, along with several other towns and villages in Perthshire. Beautifully situated in the glen of Strath Fillan at the north-western edge of the Trossachs National Park, the village provides access for climbers and hill walkers to Munro peaks such as Stob Binnein, An Caisteal, Cruach Ardrain and Ben More.
Crianlarich benefits from its position on the West Highland Way, a popular route for hikers and the village occupies it at mid-point. There are numerous paths leading to Strath Fillan and Glen Falloch as well as other footpaths in the Mamlorn hills located around Tyndrum and Crianlarich.
When the summer guests go home and peace and tranquility descend again, Crianlarich has only a resident population of ca. 185 people, but in the busy summer months the SYHA Youth Hostel, Best Western Hotel and a whole host of B&Bs provide accommodation for a veritable army of travellers.
The local tourism board has created some excellent guides for the mountains and hills. A disclaimer tells every visitor, however, that the local population cannot be held responsible for the health and safety of travellers. And who could blame them? Sadly every year, irresponsible hill walkers and climbers set off to explore the great outdoors without the proper equipment, clothing or local knowledge and experience.
While such people have only themselves to blame, a tourist setting out with a professional guide to enjoy the views over Loch Tay will expect to arrive back at their B&B safely. If your guide proves less than professional and doesn’t know his Trossachs from his Beinn Tulaichean, when heavy weather sets in, you could be in serious danger.
