Loch Ordie and Loch Oisinneach

Loch Oisinneach by bike

Loch Oisinneach by bike

In the hills above Ballinluig is a fantastic network of paths perfect for both walking and mountain biking. A particularly popular path is the short walk to Loch Ordie. It is a stunning wee loch within easy reach of the road and well worth a visit.  Good views of Creag Martach on the other side of the River Tay when descending.

For a longer loop you can head towards Loch Oisinneach (Mor and Beg) and you soon find yourself in what seems like total wilderness. The path is good and well marked. My favourite spot is the old ruin below. I definitely

The bothy at Loch Skiach

The Bothy at Loch Skiach

The Bothy at Loch Skiach with a gloomy Craig Lochie in the distance.

In the hills above Logierait and Balinluig is a fantastic little bothy on the banks of Loch Skiach. It is located up a landrover track on the Kinnaird Estate about 5km from the road. The bothy is an excellent spot for lunch (it provided some much needed spoons for today’s porridge), but is pretty exposed and has been freezing cold every time we have visited. The walk itself is pretty stunning and can be made into various loops taking in Craig Lochie, Creag Martach and another wee

Loch Dunmore

Loch Dunmore near PitlochryLoch Dunmore is a small loch in the Faskally woods just outside Pitlochry. It is an easy walk from town or there is a car park on site.
