Scottish Crannog Centre

The Fortingall Yew

Queen's View Loch Tummel

 


Dunkeld Family Gathering, Day 3 - Tuesday 26 October

Full Scottish Breakfast: This morning we are off to the Highland village of Kenmore situated on the banks of Loch Tay just beyond Aberfeldy. In Kenmore, on the South Bank of Loch Tay, we visited the Scottish Crannog centre where we viewed the remains of the ancient loch-dwelling settlement dating back 5,000 years. This was a most fascinating experience for young and old alike. After the Scottish Crannog we had lunch in the Kenmore Hotel situated in the village square.

From Kenmore we drove North to visit the oldest living thing in Europe, the Fortingall yew. This ancient tree is thought to be anything between 3,000 and 9,000 years old!! We then drove through the Highland Perthshire mountains to the Queens View at Loch Tummel, named after Isabelle wife of Robert the Bruce, and visited often by Queen Victoria. Superb views over Loch Tummel. From Queen's View we drove East to Garry Bridge where we stopped to admire the views of the River Garry below. We then returned to the Royal Dukeld Hotel for dinner.
