The Birks of Aberfeldy are the first of many highlights on an action packed day to Fortingall. Following footpaths and farm roads you soon reach Kenmore at the head of Loch Tay. History buffs shouldn’t miss the Scottish Crannog centre or alternatoivey the Kenmore Hotel, one of many claimants to the title of Scotland’s oldest inn. Leaving Kenmore the route climbs over Drummond Hill, rewarding with expansive views of Loch Tay.

The hamlet of Fortingall is famous for having the oldest [Yew]  tree in Scotland and is reputedly the birth place of Pontius Pilate - the son of a Roman Legionary and a local girl.
