Crianlarich, Stirlingshire, Scotland - A Movie
Crianlarich is a village in Stirling Council area and the registration county of Perthshire, Scotland, about six miles north-east of the head of Loch Lomond. The village's name derives from the Gaelic for "low pass", relating to its geographical location. The village is served by Crianlarich Railway Station and has been a major crossroads for north and westbound journeys in Scotland since mediaeval times. In the 1750s, two military roads met in the village; in the 19th century, it became a railway junction on what is now the West Highland Line; in the 20th century it became the meeting point of the major A82 and A85 roads. As such, it is designated a primary destination in Scotland, signposted from as far as Glasgow in the south, Perth in the east, Oban in the west and Fort William in the north. There are more direction signs pointing to Crianlarich than any other location in the UK. The village bills itself "the gateway to the Highlands", a not uncommon claim - for example, Pitlochry and Dunoon also do so. The village lies in the glen of Strath Fillan at the north western extent of the Trossachs, lying in the shadow of several Munro peaks, notably Ben More, but also Stob Binnein and Cruach Ardrain. Thus Crianlarich is very popular with hillwalkers. Also the village lies halfway along the long distance footpath, the West Highland Way making Crianlarich a popular stop for tourists.
