Next we arrived at Killin at the southern tip of Loch Tay. Here we spent a few hours watching the Highland Games which included Highland Dancing, Piping, Shot Putting, Hammer Throwing and the Callendar Pipe Band which marched the length of the town. Weather was very clement.

Next to the Crannog Centre at Kenmore on Loch Tay. This is a recreated loch dwelling of about 2500 years ago. The guide was very helpful and provided practical experiments of woodworking, fire making and other skills from the Crannog era.
