Perthshire and Loch Tay are amongst the world’s best known locations for salmon and trout fishing At Ardeonaig. Naturally, our area is a great draw for walkers.

Other activities to fill busy, happy days include mountain-biking, bird-watching, sailing, golf, climbing and discovering the fascinating history of this area, where Iron Age peoples built many defensible man-made islands called Crannogs on the loch.

But there’s no rule to say you have to be active here. Many of our guests are content simply to stroll, sit, and soak in some of the most magnificent scenery in Europe.

If you are interested in walking in the surrounding area, please visit our "Local Walks & Hikes" page for detailed information.

Pitlochry Hydroelectric Dam

Website

Pitlochry Hydroelectric Dam and Fish Ladder spans the River Tummel at Pitlochry in Perthshire, Scotland. It was built between 1947 and 1951. By damming the River Tummel, Loch Faskally was created behind it.

Part of the Scottish Antiques Trail, Killin gallery has the largest selection of etchings in Scotland, with typically over 150 in stock at any one time. Including artists such as Wyllie, Blampied, Soper, Langmead and Briscoe.


Scottish Crannog Centre

Website

A crannog is a type of ancient loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland dating from 2,500 years ago. An important part of our heritage, many crannogs were built out in the water as defensive homesteads and represented symbols of power and wealth. The centre is a very short drive from Ardeonaig.


Taymouth Marina Watersports

Website

The new watersports & activity centre is located in new purpose built facilities at Taymouth Marina. With a modern fleet of boats, equipment and new training facility, activities include canoe, motorboat, pedalo and topper hire.


Fishing

Those with a fishing permit are able to fish at any point of public land around the loch. If, however, you are not the holder of a permit, we can arrange fishing privately at the back of the hotel's estate.
