Kayaking in Scotland – Loch Tummel

Loch Tummel

Tay Country, Perthshire

Loch Tummel visited by the monarch over the centuries offers some superb scenery and plenty of forgotten stories which we will share with you. Located just a short drive drive away from Pitlochry with the views towards the famous mountain, Schiehallion. It’s one of the most iconic venues in Central Scotland, a simply ‘must see’.

We will start our tour on the south eastern end of the loch, where is a little bit more sheltered, making it the trip a novice freindly experience. A great p[ace to try night kayaking in the auatumn and winter months. Loch Tummel offers some great picnic spots if you would rather extend your trip to a full day or maybe even an overnight stay.




Going north on the A9 from Perth direction take a right turning, just north of the Fonab Castle, signposted Clunie. Continue on this road for about 7 minutes. You will pass a big archway on your right then a white water river section and finally the Clunie Dam. We will wait a 300m further, on the right in a layby by the loch ///swooning.reserve.scout
