Coffee in Jerusalem, Drinks at the Falls of Dochart Inn
On Saturday 13th October we are offering a linear walk from the charming village of St Fillans, on Loch Earn to Killin which is on Loch Tay. This walk has everything – pre-historic standing stones, derelict 18th century township, two lochs, and great views of some well-known mountains.
The route, difficult to do without two cars, goes through some of the most beautiful and tranquil scenery between these two magnificent bodies of water. Along the way we will visit the ruins of Jerusalem, an abandoned 18th century township, which was probably a victim of the “clearances.” From here spectacular views over Loch Earn to Ben Vorlich and beyond are possible. Then on through quiet Glen Tarken and Glen Beich, across no man’s land to Lochan Breaclaich Reservoir, before dropping down into Killin, hopefully catching glimpses of Ben Lawers.
Along the way you will be able to see the standing stones at Kinnell.
Finally, whilst enjoying a well-earned rest at Killin, you will be able to marvel at the sight and sounds of the world famous spectacular Falls of Dochart which are just above the ancient burial ground of Clan MacNab who once held sway over the area.
The walk is about 12 miles long, with a total ascent of about 1700 feet and will take about 7 and a half hours, excluding travelling time. Visit www.droverstryst.com for further details and to book.
