Loch Bhac

Loch Bhac

Where:  Glen Garry and Allean Forest

Distance:  Between 8.0 miles (12.9 km) and 11.0 miles (17.7 km)

Grade:  Moderate

Terrain:  Mix of public roads, farm tracks, forest roadways, rough footpaths, moorland and open fields

Transport:  Buses to Struan, and buses and trains from Blair Atholl

Starting in Struan, with a chance to visit the dramatic Falls of Struan, the quiet fishing lake of Loch Bhac can be reached after a steady climb across fields, through woodland and over moors to the edge of Allean Forest. The shorter return route offers distant views of Blair Castle, Carn Liath and Ben Vrackie, whilst the longer return route goes deeper into the forest to pass through the upper reaches of Glen Fincastle and, eventually, a fairly rapid descent through birch woods into Blair Atholl.
