Dance Information

The Trossachs itself is a small woodland glen in the Stirling council area of Scotland lying between Ben A'an to the north and Ben Venue to the south, with Loch Katrine to the west and Loch Achray to the east. However, the name 'The Trossachs' is used generally to refer to the wider area of wooded glens and braes with quiet lochs, lying to the east of Ben Lomond.
