The magnificent Loch Tay is the largest of the region’s lochs and the deepest in Scotland. Perfect for sailing and other watersports, the loch is also home to the Scottish Crannog Centre, an authentic recreation of the Iron Age dwellings which once existed along its shores. Loch Rannoch is one the region’s largest and most recognised lochs. Overlooked by Schiehallion, the loch is abundant in brown and ferox trout as well as pike making it a popular destination for keen anglers.

More excellent fishing can be found at the Loch Tummel which also offers a great choice of walking and cycling routes. The Queen’s View, a magnificent vista which takes in Loch Tummel the peak of Schiehallion and Glen Coe on a clear day, is located high above its north shore. It is believed to take its name from Queen Isabella, the wife of the Robert the Bruce, who hunted in the area.

Some of the region’s smaller but attractive lochs include Loch Turret, situated just north of Crieff, and the Loch of Clunie located between Blairgowrie and Dunkeld, both of which offer scenic walking and cycling routes and birdwatching opportunities.
