WHERE ARE WE? Pandorafest is located at Duncarron Medieval Village, Carron Valley FK6 5JL. Sited within a rolling forest on the shores of the Carron Valley reservoir, it is surrounded by beautiful walks and mountain bike trails, all less than 12km from Stirling. Good boots a good idea!
Look for the official Carron Valley Mountain Bike Trails site on the east side of the Carron Valley reservoir - accessible via the B818, which runs from Denny to Fintry.
