This enjoyable walk from Maidens sets out along the coast to visit the Culzean Castle Country Park. The route has a bit of everything - beach, fine woodlands, sea views, attractive lochs and a truly spectacular stately castle. The grounds are free to enter from Maidens but you would need to buy a ticket to visit the castle itself, or a grounds ticket for a more extended visit to the gardens. Full details here.
Stob Coire Creagach is the highest summit of Binnein an Fhidhleir - the latter being the original name of the whole mountain, although walkers often use it to refer to the lower western summit. The mountain impressively walls in the north side of Glen Kinglas. It gives a short hillwalk but with a truly gruelling and unremittingly steep ascent. The views from the ridge are simply superb. More details here.
This easy-going circuit on forest tracks has excellent views over Loch Ard including the remains of a small crannog. A steep, but short, climb is rewarded with a typical Trossachs view of loch and mountains, especially good in the autumn colours.
Grade: Easier walks, mostly on well defined paths, with no special difficulties

Beinn a' Choin is a rugged and wild tract of moorland and rocky hills lying to the north of Ben Lomond. The obvious horseshoe route to the summit around Coire Arklet has no parking area, so this route instead climbs the mountain from the RPSB car park at Garrison Farm. More details here.
