Heritage Trail

The project has used new and existing information to develop a heritage trail that follows a circular route around the isthmus between Arrochar and Tarbet. The Hidden Heritage Trail is about 3.5 miles long and follows part of the Three Lochs Way footpath - however, for those who don't want to walk the whole loop, the trail can be accessed at various points along its route.

Leaflets describing what to look out for along the trail can be picked up from the leaflet holder at the Three Villages Hall and from several other places. A copy can also be downloaded here (though it isn't quite as clear as the printed version).  Please bear with us - the leaflets have been so popular that we've run out of the lovely coloured ones, but are doing our best to keep the holder topped up with a black and white version!

Thanks to St. Andrews University Open Virtual Worlds group, we now have a phone app for our heritage trail! Special thanks to Ade Fabola and Alan Miller for making that possible. You can download a version of the 'Arrochar Mobile App' for Android devices HERE, or an IOS version from iTunes HERE. This is still a bit of a work in progress, so we'd love to hear from you if you've tried it. Let us know if there are any glitches, and please send us any photos or video clips you take along the way :)

Hidden Heritage has also teamed up with 'Global Treasure Apps' to create an interactive treasure hunt for the Hidden Heritage Trail. As you walk, a simple quiz with images uncovers the secrets of the landscape with a reward for completing the trail! Download the FREE app now and explore the Hidden Heritage of this spectacular part of Scotland. Follow in the footsteps of Viking raiders, trace the history of the once-powerful MacFarlane clan, and marvel at the scenery that’s attracted tourists and climbers for hundreds of years.... Look for Global Treasure Apps in your app store, and find the Hidden Heritage Trail. While you're there, why not check out some of the other Treasure Trails for sites in Britain and across the globe. When you've completed the trail, take your phone with its reward symbol to the Three Villages Cafe to collect your

and why not stay to enjoy some well-earned refreshment?

Interpretation panels are located at the Three Villages Hall, Tarbet Pier and at the side of the trail, opposite Ballyhennan. A beautiful slate interpretation panel is also located in the pavement outside the Three Villages Hall in Arrochar. This was created by mosaic artist Dugald MacInnes, and incorporates ideas from the children of Arrochar Primary School.
