We’re having a week off and decided to visit Scotland with friends. Today was a walk around the hills above Loch Tay – at the Acharn Falls: ‘From Acharn, on the south shore of Loch Tay, the path rises through beech-woods past a narrow gorge where the Acharn Burn plummets over the Acharn Falls. Above the falls the route follows Land-Rover tracks over open moorland providing superb views, then passes an ancient tumulus and stone circle before fording the burn. Returning, view the falls from the gallery of a hermit’s cave.’
And tomorrow we’re going to unfurl the Brompton folding bicycles at the top of the hill outside Killin and cycle to Pitlochry on the National Cycle Route. Imagine actually living here!
