At 14 miles long Loch Tay is Perthshire’s longest loch and surrounding is some outstanding scenery and beautiful Scottish towns and villages. There is so much to do around here a week may not be long enough so many people come back to a Scottish cottage year after year. From Aberfeldy on the northern end of Loch Tay to Killin in the south there is lots to take in so why not have a two centred two week holiday to make the most of this beautiful part of Scotland?
Surrounded by magnificent scenery, Aberfeldy lies on the River Tay and is the perfect base for touring the famous Perthshire lochs and glens or exploring west to the Trossachs, Argyll and Oban. Within a few miles are Loch Tay, the remote solitude of Glen Lyon and the grandeur of the high peaks of Schiehallion and Ben Lawers.

The village has a shop, historic hotel, an acclaimed restaurant and golf course all within easy walking distance. The loch offers sailing, mooring, water sports and angling while the river offers white water rafting, canoeing, gorge walking and fishing.
