Explore Breadalbane:  The Year-Round Visitor Experience

The Gaelic words Bràghad Albainn mean 'the high ground of Scotland', a fitting name as the dominant mountain, Ben Lawers, is the highest in Scotland outwith the Nevis and Cairngorm ranges.

Although the area is centred on the upper reaches of the Tay river and loch system, it has no exact geographic definition. Here we use the centuries-old name of Breadalbane to tell you about the many attractions that can you enjoy, year-round, in the basin of the upper Tay from Tyndrum in the west to Kenmore in the east, from Glen Lyon in the north to Balquidder and Strathyre in the south, and in Strathearn from Lochearnhead to Comrie.

Breadalbane is not just a summer destination. Winter hill walking is popular, as is ski mountaineering when conditions permit. Deer stalking and shooting continue through the winter months and it is possible to fish all year round. And what better time to visit a distillery than on a chilly winter day!  On these pages we hope to show you many of the attractions and promotions that local tourism providers offer throughout the year.  You can find more details of visitor suggestions here.
