Kayaking in Scotland – Loch Tay, Kenmore

Loch Tay, Kenmore

Tay Country, Perthshire

It’s the largest loch in Perthshire and one of the deepest in Scotland. To the north, the loch is flanked by the impressive bulk of the Ben Lawers mountain range, much of which is designated as a National Nature Reserve. We will launch from the Kenmore beach and explore the area of the nearby historical crannogs and islands. It’s a venue suitable for courius explorers, families and histroy or wildlife lovers. You can extend the tour to a full day or evena multi day trip and slowly travel towards Killin or down the River Tay and experience wild camping.




A lay by the Kenmore Beach. Following the road A827 from Aberfeldy, you will see the laybe on your left, just next to the loch.



No previous paddling experience necessary. Suitable for age 5+




Warm clothes, no jeans, suitable for the weather, including shoes you don’t mind to get wet, that’s it. We will have dry bags available so you can carry spare hats, gloves, food, camera, drink and any medications safely with you.
