Whether you’ve arrived at Tyndrum walking on the West Highland Way, or you’re visiting the area, there’s lots of activities to keep you occupied on your stay.
Hillwalking/Hiking is obviously an major attraction in the Highlands, with Tyndrum being roughly the half-way point of the West Highland Way, but you’re also right next door to some amazing places for running, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, fishing, kayaking/canoeing or just relaxing sight-seeing to take some nice photo’s.
For hillwalkers there are dozens of Munros and Corbetts within half an hour including Ben Lui, Ben Oss and Ben Duchraig which can all be walked from the door-step (or the tent-flap if you’re a camper). Munros apart there are also a good number of high and low level walks in the area to suit all tastes.

Tyndrum has recently seen a resurgence in interest from mining companies for Gold mining and an old mine just outside Tyndrum has recently had an application to re-open approved. This means that the rivers coming from the hills passing through Tyndrum have Gold deposits and are proving popular for panning. You can purchase gold panning equipment in the village.
