Killin, Loch Tay, Scotland 4th -11th February 2023

This is the Nuneaton Mountaineering and Hill Walking Clubs annual walking holiday in Scotland. This year we were at Killin on the shores of Loch Tay a beautiful spot surrounded by mountains and stunning scenery. 11 members and friends of the Nuneaton Mountaineering and Hill walking club signed up for this event and it proved to be one of the best. The weather was kind being mainly dry and not too cold. There was snow on the higher mountains and we did get a little more during the week but again only on the higher ground. Killin is a lovely town with a spectacular set of rapids “The falls of Dochart”, a ruined castle “Finlarig” with a gruesome history, and evidence of a Victorian railway line.


We stayed in Mountain Lodges which were very comfortable, its all self catering so we share evening meal duties giving everyone a break from cooking and each lodge take it’s turns to host the evening get together where we share a drink or two and discuss plans for the next day. There was lots to do in the area  from Munros, Ben Lawes being the nearest, to lake side walks and plenty in between.
