Top Five Aberfeldy Adventures
Paddling on Loch Tay
Loch Tay is a magnificent setting. With Scotland's ninth highest mountain, Ben Lawers looking down on it, Loch Tay has 17 miles of water to explore. It makes the perfect place to go paddling. Whether on a Canoe, Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard there is plenty to see, from small islands, crannog ruins to sheltered bays. Kenmore makes a particularly good place to start from, with shallow depths ideal for your first time on the water.
