Killin and Aberfeldy, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon


-4.11

Stretching fifteen miles from the popular village of Killin to beautiful Kenmore, serene Loch Tay is at the heart of this area. On its north side are the mighty summits of Ben Lawers and its many satellites, whilst the south side is quieter and unfrequented. Aberfeldy - just to the east of Kenmore - is the main settlement and is as fine a small town as you could wish for.

Heading north over the pass from Killin, or entered via the picturesque hamlet of Fortingall, is lovely Glen Lyon. This offers the finest glen scenery in the region, ranging from fine woodlands and fertile pastures right up to the lonely dams of Loch Lyon and Loch an Daimh.
