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. 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.
Every imaginable watersport from scuba diving to parascending is available on the loch, whilst the mountains are home to hikers, gorge walkers, field sports fanatics, mountaineers and wildlife enthusiasts. Cyclists and horse riders can saddle up in the local area and there are two golf courses (one 9 and one 18 hole) within 5 minutes drive. Dewars distillery in Aberfeldy will delight the whisky connoisseur, whilst younger visitors will find the local wildlife parks more to their taste. The area is packed full of activities, so whatever the weather, there is always something new to see and do nearby.
