Loch Dunmore

Tranquil Loch Dunmore

The wonderfully tranquil Loch Dunmore, with its boat house and picturesque timber footbridge, lies within Faskally Forest and close to a car park and picnic site. The circular walk around the loch shore takes around half an hour, Follow the path around the loch keeping a sharp lookout for Heron fishing in the reeds and the blur of electric blue, as a Kingfisher quickly darts over the water.

The secluded shores are also accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Parking and toilet facilities for the disabled are available within the forest close to the start of the route. There is also a fishing stance designed for wheelchair users on the waters edge. This attractive little loch holds carp, tench, roach, perch and rudd.

The best time to see the forest is in spring when the trees are in bud, or in autumn when reflections fill the loch with shimmering colour.

There is a Forestry Commission Scotland car park on the left side of the north-bound carriageway, one mile north-west of Pitlochry on the B8019.
