Where is Drymen?
The village of Drymen sits in the hills at the western end of the Campsie Fells, overlooking the Endrick Water as it nears Loch Lomond.
This popular tourist town has a long history. In the 18th and 19th centuries Drymen was a popular stopover for Highland cattle drovers. The beautiful parish was built in 1771 and just outside the village are the substantial ruins of Buchanan Castle, a former stronghold of the powerful Grahams of Montrose which dates back to the 17th century.
Other sites of interest include The Clachan Inn, which was first licensed in 1734, and the remains of a medieval motte which can be seen by the bridge in the village. There are also two golf courses, the Buchanan Castle Golf Course and the Strathendrick Golf Course.
Drymen is a good base to explore Loch Lomond, whose tranquil eastern shore offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the National Park. You can also rent bikes in the village in order to follow the Loch Lomond cycleway.
