Cycle Paths

Tyndrum to Killin Cycle Path

Update 2023

After a hiatus of a couple of years, things are finally moving forward for the Tyndrum to Killin Cycle Path. Towards the end of 2022 a Steering Group was set up to get things going. This includes the Strathfillan Community Development Trust, Killin and Ardeonaig Trust, Sustrans, the Countryside Trust, and a representative from Active Stirling.

We have secured funding through Sustrans to undertake a Feasibility Study for the remainder of the path, from Kirkton to Killin, and hope to have this completed by March 2024. 

Phase 1: Tyndrum to Kirkton

The creation of the Tyndrum to Crianlarich Cycle Path has been a community ambition for over 20 years, and in 2016-2017 the first Phase was completed. The Trust supported and facilitated the Countryside Trust, who raised the funds and built the stretch from Tyndrum to Dalrigh car park, which linked Tyndrum to Kirkton Farm. The path became usable around March 2017, and the official opening was in August 2017. It has been praised by Sustran's CEO as one of their favourite stretches of cycle path. Certainly, the views across the Crianlarich Mountains are stunning.

Phase 2: Kirkton to Crianlarich

As the advert of that well known stout brand says, 'good things come to those that wait'. And that is how the second Phase of the Cycle Path feels. Since 2017 the Trust has been working closely with the Countryside Trust and the National Park to get Phase 2 off the ground. As there are multiple landowners and agencies to deal with it has been much more difficult to move forward.

The Trust spent much of 2018 investigating the possible community purchase of Ewich Woods, however, this has not come to pass and we are looking into different avenues.

Currently, the National Park are leading the project with support from ourselves and the Countryside Trust.
