Loch Tay Area

Loch Tay Area

Aberfeldy, on the A827, 9 miles west of Ballinluig, has an impressive 4-arched bridge built by General Wade in 1733.  Places on interest include Dewar's World of Whisky at the distillery, the 16th century Castle Menzies with its authentic interior and the Glenlyon Art Gallery.

Loch Tay lies a few miles west of Aberfeldy and is dominated by the 1214-metre Ben Lawers on whose slopes is an interesting visitor centre.  Near to Kenmore at the eastern tip of the loch, is the Scottish Crannog Centre which has a fascinating heritage museum and a reconstructed crannog (an Iron Age dwelling built on stilts over the loch).  There is a wide range of watersports on the loch including water-skiing, fishing, rafting, canoeing, sailing and jet-biking.  Both the 16th-century Kenmore Hotel and the Byre Bistro serve good meals.

Killin lies at the western tip of Loch Tay where you can view the Falls of Dochart and visit the Breadalbane Folklore Centre.    The wild Glen Lyon, north of Loch Tay, is the longest glen in Scotland and can be explored by bike if you do not wish to attempt the single-track road which winds through the glen.  At the eastern end of the glen is the quaint thatched-roofed village of Fortingall and its 5,000-year old yew tree is considered to be the oldest tree in Europe.
