Loch Tay Walk
Enjoy a short walk to Loch Tay from the town of Killin in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The walk starts at the parking area in Killin and crosses the River Lochay on an old railway bridge. You continue along the now disused railway line through woodland to the loch. From here you can enjoy pretty little beaches and wonderful views across the loch to the surrounding hills and mountains. You can return to the car park or extend your walk by heading along the River Dochart to the beautiful Falls of Dochart which is a short walk away. The Rob Roy Way also passes through Killin so you could also extend your outing on this long distance footpath.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas
You could follow the old railway line south through Glen Ogle to visit Loch Earn. The shared cycling and walking route runs for about 8 miles along a traffic free path following the course of the former Callander and Oban Railway from Killin to Loch Earn.
To the south east there's the lovely Glen Turret and Loch Turret. There's a fine circular walk around this remote loch visiting Ben Chonzie mountain.
