Picnic spots near Loch Tay

The road from the Glen Lyon tearoom at the Bridge of Balgie over to Loch Tay is crammed with delightful spots to picnic – from those tucked away down at the burnside edge to those that offer stunning views down to Loch Tay.

It’s over 30 years since I first stopped with my husband-to-be to picnic along this road as it passes between the mighty Ben Lawers, Beinn Ghlas and Meall Nan Tarmachan.

Parking is available at the NTS Car Park from where you can wend your way up or down, picnic hamper in hand, and then while away the hours sitting in the heather, drinking tea and eating cake.

The day Ann and I stopped with Nessie to picnic we nearly got blown away – but it was lovely all the same.
