Falls of Dochart, Killin, Scotland.

This evening, I am focusing on the Falls of Dochart which are located in the village of Killin at the southern end of Loch Tay in central Scotland.

The site affords easy access for visitors, especially at times of low water levels, during the summer months.

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