Loch Tummel is approximately 6½ miles from east to west and just over ½ a mile wide. Similar to Pitlochry, the loch became part of the Tummel Hydro-Electric Power Scheme when Clunie Dam was constructed in 1950. The north shore of Loch Tummel is best known for 'Queen's View' - made famous by Queen Victoria in 1866 – offering magnificent views of Loch Tummel with Schiehallion in the background. The south side offers narrow roads, stunning countryside and hamlets. Along the way you will fund duns, forts, cairn circles and forests. At the head of the loch you can turn left for Aberfeldy, right for Calvine and Kinloch Rannoch.
Kinloch Rannoch village sits at the eastern end of Loch Rannoch. The area offers visitors activities such as fishing, rafting, cycling, trekking and walking. Many walks are accessible from the village.
Following Loch Rannoch (north or south side) you will come to the famous Rannoch Station - the ideal stop for coffee and cake!
