Kayaking in Scotland – Loch Dochart

Loch Dochart

Tay Country, Stirling

 

Loch Dochart is a freshwater loch fed by the River Fillan and connected to Loch Tay by the River Dochart. It’s a small but scenic venue, suitable for all age explorers even those with no prior kayaking experience. Adding to the drama of the views across Loch Dochart is a ruined castle on an island. Walking, especially in the mountains, is popular here because the lochs are surrounded by the giants of Ben More, Cruach Ardrain to the south and Sgiath Chuil neighbouring Beinn Challum in the north.

The River Dochart flows east down the glen to reach the village of Killin where the famous white waters of the Falls of Dochart can be seen – and heard – before flowing into Loch Tay, just outside the National Park. A great venue which we use all year round.
