More about the Loch Tay area:

Loch Tay is the sixth largest loch in Scotland and is over 150 metres deep at its deepest. It is approximately 14½ miles long and over a mile wide. Ben Lawers, the UKs 10th highest mountain at 1214m, proudly emerges from the waters of the loch to provide a dramatic backdrop. Two rivers feed the loch, the Lochay and the the Dochart. The latter flowing over spectacular falls in the village of Killin to the West. Loch Tay feeds the River Tay, the longest river in Scotland, and one of the best salmon fishing rivers in Europe. Kenmore, a small unspoilt village at the head of Loch Tay, boasts the oldest inn in Scotland, The Kenmore Hotel, which dates back to 1572.
