Falls of Dochart, Killin

Falls of Dochart, Killin, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on the Falls of Dochart at Killin in Perthshire.

Killin is a small but popular tourist town at the southern tip of Loch Tay. The Falls are one of the popular visitor attractions which occur where the River Dochart runs downs a rocky gradient and on into Loch Tay just a mile or so downstream. The video clip shows the falls in full spate but in the summer months the water can be subdued and allow visitors to scramble over te rocks in and around the water. 

Killin and environs has much to offer the visitor with many places of interest nearby including:

  • Kenmore and the Crannog Centre.
  • Ben Lawers (mountain hiking).
  • Loch Tay itself with water related activities.
  • Climbing and hiking in the nearby hills.
  • Fortingall and its ancient yew tree.
  • Glen Lyon

I usually include a stop to view the falls during my private tours of the area. Close by is a pub which offers good food and refreshment.
