Yew Tree, Loch Tay, near Killin, Perthshire
Yew Tree is the perfect base for anyone wanting to explore the extensive attractions that Loch Tay has to offer. There are several golf courses, in particular Killin and Aberfeldy, and endless opportunities to walk, cycle, fish and enjoy other outdoor activities like canyoning in the Archan Gorge and white water rafting on the River Tay.
Heading east along the north shore of the loch about half way between Killin and Kenmore is the hamlet of Lawers, home of John A Lacey, the horn carver. John’s shop which is complete treasure trove is also his home and workshop. Nestled at the foot of Ben Lawers, the southern highlands highest peak (3984ft) it is a must for anyone wanting to buy unique souvenirs of their holiday in Scotland.
Eight miles further east is the town of Kenmore, home of the Scottish Crannog Centre. Crannogs were round dwellings built out in lochs and found throughout Scotland and Ireland. At the Scottish Crannog Centre there is a unique reconstruction of a crannog giving visitors an idea of what life would have been like 2500 years ago.
For those who prefer more gentle activities should visit the Dewar’s distillery in Aberfeldy and Ian Burnett the Highland chocolatier in Grandtully and take in performances at the theatre in Pitlochry.
