Falls of Dochart, Killin, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on the Falls of Dochart which are located in the Stirling District of central Scotland.

The site is very popular with visitors who, during the summer months when water levels are low, can scramble over the rocks and get close to the water.

The falls are, in fact, a series of rapids where the River Dochart emerges from Glen Dochart to empty into the western end of Loch Tay.

More information on the Falls of Dochart and environs:

  • Positioned at the western end of Killin, a popular tourist destination with population of 666.
  • Close by (other side of bridge in image below) can be found the ancient burial ground of Clan MacNab.
  • Located 63 miles north of Glasgow.
  • Featured in James Bond film, Casino Royale (1967).
  • There is an inn close to the site where visitors can avail of refreshment and enjoy the spectacle.
