Loch tay.... local knowledge anyone?

Good evening!

the wife and I have cancelled our 2 weeks all inclusive holiday to cyprus which we booked a year ago...

Instead we've booked a lodge on Loch Tay for a week with marina space. Just wondering if anyone has any advice/local knowledge of the loch they'd share? Are there many other places we can tie up to go for a bite to eat etc?


cheers!

Si

We've spent quite a holidays on loch tay a few years ago now but I doubt much has changed you can get into kenmore & the watersports centre just round the corner (possibly closed now) but there isnt much else where you can tie up. We used to beach the boat & ski & ringo etc from the shore & do barbecues you might get to the hotel in killin but you wont be doing many pubs/eateries
But its a great place to play with a boat & less restricted than loch lomond

You have Loch Tay highland lodges up on the right with restaurant and harbour. From memory a fair distance from Kenmore( where I assume you have booked if itís Taymouth marina itís great) Who knows whatíll be open but all in all itís a beautiful area and a big flat loch. Very deep(150mtr) but beware round the edges as there are former crannogs below water level.

Thank you!

It's loch tay Highland lodges that i'm staying at... Hoping i'll be able to tie up elsewhere and go ashore for some drinks/food etc... I presume you can't get up the river to killin? I've seen boats there but seem to remember them being rather small from memory.

Ken more is the better bet Iíd say. Quite a few nice places to eat/ drink and easily accessible by boat. Killin I think riskier/ shallower and not sure where you can moor. At Kenmore you have taymouth marina, in normal times you can eat/ drink there and itís a fairly decent wee marina. You can also moor at kenmore although not sure of the details or who to pay.

How precious are you about your gel coat and prop? Iíve canoed up to to Killin and people who didnít follow the right path were touching the bottom. Presumably the depth is dependant on rainfall/meltwater.

Too precious to chance it! I'll maybe leave that one to the locals!

Thanks a lot - 12miles to Kenmore from where we are staying, will be a nice outing for the kids!

cheers,
