The Forth Inn: The Forth Inn prides itself on the quality of food we provide. Wherever possible we use local produce; our meat comes from the local Aberfoyle butcher and in the summer we buy as much organic vegetables as possible from a local supplier. Our fish like the rest of our produce, comes in daily. We have won two awards including the “Best Place to Eat Out” by Visit Scotland. As well as the beers we serve (including 3 real ales), we also have a selection of around 50 malt whiskies, most of which you can’t get in the supermarkets. Main Street, Aberfoyle, The Trossachs.
