Rossarden

Rossarden is an old mining town. Situated in the valley below the striking Stacks Bluff, the town enjoys spectacular views of Ben Lomond.

Wild deer roam the streets, as well as many native animals and birds. You may even see wedge-tailed eagles soaring above the town.

Rossarden was built to house the workers for the Aberfoyle Tin Mine which started producing tin in September 1931. A dramatic drop in metal prices in the 1970s saw the mine’s production decline, and the mine eventually closed in 1982. By then te town’s population had dropped from over 500 when the mine was operational, to approximately 90. Today Rossarden has around 60 residents.
