Plean Country Park is just a few miles to the south of Stirling.  All three courses start from the main car park which has public toilets and picnic areas.

Short Course - 1.5 km

A simple course for beginners or families with small children. Find the controls in the order shown. It will probably take about 20-30 minutes.

Medium Course - 1.9 km

A simple course for beginners or families with small children but a bit further than the Short Course. It will probably take about 25-40 minutes.

Long Course - 2.2 km

A technically and physically challenging course that takes you right round the park!  It will probably take about 45-60 minutes depending on your navigational skills and physical fitness.


Other Things to do in the Area

There are three marked walking trails of different lengths starting from the car park; horse trail, toilets and picnic areas.
