“Why Should I Stay At Loch Tay?”


There are over 30,000 freshwater lochs in Scotland.

We’ve all heard of Loch Lomond, and Loch Ness might be the most famous ‘Loch’ in the world due to its association with a certain mythical monster, but at Waterside Breaks we believe that Loch Tay is a hidden gem and a great holiday destination – this is exactly why we offer a number of holiday lodges in Scotland and lodge breaks in Scotland around Loch Tay.
Set within some of the most spectacular Scottish Highland views, the loch itself is 14 miles long and 1-1.5 miles wide and offers so much for all.

Why? Because it has the best of everything Scotland has to offer: rich history, beautiful walks and breathtaking scenery.

Loch Tay has something to cater to all tastes.

Looking for a romantic Loch Tay holiday lodge in the Scottish Highlands with your partner? Take a leisurely stroll around Loch Tay, and while you’re at it: stop at the pretty villages of Killin or Kenmor at the head of the loch or Aberfeldy for a romantic meal, drinks, or shopping. Visit the beautiful Dochart Falls situated just outside the village of Killin at the western end of Loch Tay. Here, the River Dochart stretches out into the spectacular Dochart Falls, cascading over the small island of Inchbuie before flowing into Loch Tay.

Hiking enthusiast? Loch Tay is surrounded by walks suitable for all abilities, and plenty of them are ideal for dog walkers. From Ben Lawers (one of the highest mountains in the UK) and Schiehallion (the ‘Fairy Hill of the Caledonians’) to the Birks of Aberfeldy, with its picturesque waterfalls, there’s something for everyone.Keen angler? The River Tay offers some of the best freshwater salmon fishing anywhere in the world, and the loch itself offers fantastic loch fishing opportunities, coarse and fly fishing with boat hire available at several locations.

History buffs can find the remains of ancient settlements near the loch, as well as a faithfully-recreated ‘Crannog’: an Iron Age homestead made from stone and supported by wooden stilts protruding from the loch itself.
