Defender Jam is an annual family festival set in the stunning backdrop of Monachyle Mhor, Balquhidder, near Callander. The idea behind this is to bring together like-minded people who like Land Rovers, good food and drink and a fun and sociable day that the whole family will enjoy. The venue is just 20 minutes drive from Balquhidder Mhor Lodges.
