Travel to the Crannog centre, Loch Tay for a light lunch. Go for a forest walk before returning to Allt Beag. Book for dinner at the Achray House, St Fillans.
Once lockdown restrictions have lifted, are there any businesses you would recommend to your guests? i.e. restaurants/cafes/local businesses etc.
Yes, I would recommend a wildlife walk with Aquila Ecology. A great experience with the guide pointing out things you may otherwise miss. Local eating at the Lochearnhead Hotel, or Clachan Hotel or The Four Seasons and Achray House at St Fillans
Is there anything else you would like to say to our readers?
If you enjoy relaxing or exploring both can be done in this area with many historic sites to visit and enjoy. The difficulty of walks can be increased by climbing a local munro. Bike hire or kayak hire is not to be missed to explore the pathways and trails.
