Hillwalking Loch Tay - Perth and Kinross - Scottish Walks.
Loch Tay is more or less situated in the centre of Scotland, just south of the Grampian Mountains, with Killin at the south of the loch and Kenmore at the north. The other main towns in the area are, Aberfeldy, Dunkeld and Pitlochry. The north side of the loch contains the mountains, where 3 or 4 can be climbed by hopping from one to the other....Ben Lawers, Meall Greig, Meall Garbh and Meall a choire Leith. Also a few miles north of Kenmore there is Schiehallion, which attracts climbers all year round. The loch is also a popular destination with Watersport enthusiasts. There are a few golf courses in the area too and fishing is plentiful
The small village of Kenmore, Perthshire, on the A827 at the eastern end of Loch Tay is an excellent base from which to conduct your walking or climbing of the surrounding area. I pitched tent in the local campsite and was delighted to find a nine hole golf course next door. In between the golf, Schiehallion(1083), Ben Lawers(1214) and Beinn Ghlas were conquered, all of which require a few thigh muscles and a good 5hrs of your time. All have manageable paths, again the views are fantastic.
Just north of Kenmore is Drummond Hill which boasts many forest walks and most will produce a view down Loch Tay, where many watersports can be endulged in. Kenmore, which is also well within striking distance of the scenic Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, and the village of Killin, with the nearby Ben More at the other end of the loch are well worth a visit.
