If you've been following and reading my monologues for a while, you will know that one of my favourite times of year in Scotland is Autumn. The colours are just beautiful! There are some great walks and places to visit. Here's why you should celebrate Autumn in Aberfeldy, Kenmore & Loch Tay.

Last year I had the chance to visit one of Aberfeldy's great attractions Highland Safaris just outside Aberfeldy in the village of Dull. This attraction is anything but dull! Take one of the mountain safaris which includes a jeep ride over rough terrain, through streams and over heather-clad peaks. Once at the top, warm up in a Scottish Bothy with a wee dram and shortbread that are produced locally. On return don’t miss getting up close with Rua the Red Stag and Ossian the barn owl.
Before leaving check out the cafe for fresh, local, delicious, hot and cold snacks. Yum!
Loch Tay Activities
This is a brilliant time to explore one of Scotland's deepest loch's - Loch Tay. At over 508 feet deep formed by glaciers and the Highland Fault Line. Did you know it's residents date back to neolithic times! One of the great activities you don't want to miss is a boat trip with Loch Tay Safaris. Climb on-board the covered RIB boat Lolaire (Gaelic for Eagle) to see the incredible scenery and hear the entertaining stories about Kelpies and much more.
Have you enjoyed the early morning cruise and ready for a scrumptious lunch? Drive up to Highland Safaris Cafe to enjoy the fresh, local, hot and cold produce. Yum!

The Scottish Crannog Centre
Visit the reconstruction of the early iron age dwelling - Crannog. See the 2,500-year-old underwater discoveries and try your hand with some of the early tools and hear the stories at The Scottish Crannog Centre.
Did you know they discovered an ancient bowl with butter still clinging to it? It's a fun experience for the whole family.
It is possible to do all the above in one day but why not extend your stay in the area and visit at a more leisurely pace. There is so much more, take a hike up Ben Lawers one of Scotland's Munro's or perhaps visit the falls of Killin. Don't forget to book accommodation and car rental in advance to get the best rates!
