Loch Tay

Loch Tay is Perthshire's largest loch, stretching 15 miles long and between 1 and 2 miles wide. It is the main source of the River Tay and is well known for its salmon fishing. Some of the largest salmon in Scottish history have been caught there.

Loch Tay is fed by two main rivers, the Dochart and the Lochy, which enter the loch at Killin. Overlooking the loch is Ben Lawers.

The Scottish Crannog Centre is located in the loch.
