TOURING, ATTRACTIONS, AND ACTIVITIES POSSIBLE: Central Scotland is the perfect base from which the Highlands, the Inner Hebrides isles, coastal lands east and west, and the great Scottish cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness can be reached in a series of day trips by car. The region’s central location makes it a great base from which the Highlands, the Inner Hebrides isles, coastal lands east and west, and the great Scottish cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness can be reached in a series of day trips by car & rail. See two sample day trips: Sail Loch Etive and See Highland Seals, and Hiking over the Devil's Staircase from Glen Coe. Our 100+ page accompanying "Scotland Activities Guide" provides dozens of suggestions of all kinds.
          Located in the Highlands of Central Scotland at

 

the northeastern entrance to Loch Lomond and

Trossachs National Park, Dochart Cottage is well located for all kinds of outdoor pursuits: pony trekking, walking, fishing, cycling, climbing, river rafting, golf, sketching, and sightseeing. The region’s beauty, its friendly, welcoming residents, its castles, golf courses, Highlands festivals, challenging hiking, salmon fishing (excellent in and around Killin), and many other attractions provide it with the best of Scotland.

 

THE LOCATION: Killin, often called the "Gateway to the Highlands", sits in the shadow of BEN LAWERS (3,983 ft.), one of Scotland’s highest mountains. Located at the western end of beautiful, 15-mile-long Loch Tay where the Rivers Dochart and Lochay enter the lake, Killin is blessed with a beautiful setting, straddling a waterfall and surrounded by the Highlands. Killin is an easy day trip drive from Scotland’s east and west coasts (St. Andrews to the east, and the Inner Hebrides Islands to the west), as well as the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh (each 66 miles by car). Even Inverness, the Isle of Skye, and all of the Highlands in between are within longer day-trip distance, making this tidy village an ideal center for travel in Scotland.
          Central Scotland includes regions called Breadalbane and the Trossachs, both noted for superb Highlands scenery — wild streams, clean lochs, and some of Britain’s highest mountains. Central Scotland is

best known for its bad-boy favorite son, Rob Roy

 

 MacGregor, legendary Scottish patriot, whose infamous cattle rustling, inter-clan feuding, and Highland hi-jinks made him something of a Celtic Jesse James to the Crown’s red-coated army of Scottish occupation. The Rob Roy story adds dimension and color to the already mystical landscape of mountains, glens, lochs, heather, and gorse of the Scottish Highlands.
