A summary of the Trossachs Adventure Challenge
These are average times and will vary between different families, groups and teams.
The challenge is to complete the day and is done at your own groups pace, stopping to rest and for food and drink at any time. A guide will be with the group throughout every section for safety and instruction when needed.
9.30am The Old Church
Collect bikes and general briefing. Optional 9.00am breakfast briefing at The Broch Cafe if required (recommended).
10.00am Start bike section
Leave Strathyre (South) with around 5 miles of cycling along the side of Loch Lubnaig, following national cycle route 7. This is all on well maintained cycle track and is fairly easy going. It is a great way to warm up for the day ahead.
10.45am Ascend and descend Ben Ledi
Ben Ledi is an 879 metre hill at the southern end of Loch Lubnaig. It is a moderate hill walk with around 760 metres of ascent. The views from the summit (on a good day) are stunning and are well worth the climb. Descending the hill via a different route, the group head back to the shores of Loch Lubnaig to the boats.
4.00pm Return to Strathyre by boat
The group paddle north to return to Strathyre. This section of the challenge can take 1-2 hours depending on the group and prevailing wind conditions which may hamper progress.
- For groups of 6, the day is yours! We are happy to change to an earlier start time to suit your requirements. Later start times may be feasible, depending on sunset time.
- We also offer a bespoke corporate team building day of Trossachs Adventure Challenge for companies and organisations. Please contact us for further information.
- A reverse route is available if required., ie. kayak, hill walk, then cycle to the finish.
- We are working on a winter TAC to take place every year from October to May. This can be even more of a challenge.
