Road Directions

Located adjacent to the National Trust for Scotland property of Killiecrankie, a walking path meanders through mixed woodlands and leads to the Linn of Tummel.

An obelisk commemorates a visit by Queen Victoria in 1844. At that time the Tummel made a plunge fall to join the Garry. The fall became the Linn, when the level of both rivers was raised in 1950 by the creation of Loch Faskally in a hydro-electric scheme.

Beside the Linn is a very early example of a fish-pass which previously had enabled salmon to bypass the falls.
