The views from the Loch are just amazing. I was able to take some stunning photographs. It was lovely just to look across the Loch at the trees in their stunning Autumn colours. Very peaceful.

The only problem is that the signs leading to the trail are hard to find. The loch is covered in part by several kinds of leaves.

Absolutely beautiful loch. Wonderful scenery. If you have time, there's a walking path around the perimeter of the loch

Beautiful, very peaceful place . Our hotel, the Greenpark Pitlochry overlooks it . It's possible to walk around the area and it has a small fairly basic cafe and boat house. Lovely in summer but still very relaxing off season.

Questions & Answers

We'll be arriving at the Atholl Palace Hotel in August as part of a CIE coach tour. We arrive at 3:30 and if possible I'd like to walk to the dam/visitor's center, green suspension bridge and Loch Faskally and back to the hotel by 7 pm when dinner is served. Google maps is very confusing and when I type in Loch Faskally, it just shows a trail on the opposite side of the river from the main town with some trees and a glimpse of water in the background. It also has me walking past the dam visitor's center instead of stopping at it. I'd show the google maps link but it won't let me. Can someone please give me clear directions from the hotel to provide the best photo ops, save time/backtracking and avoid walking on busy highways? Do I need to access the loch from the opposite side of the river near the Pitlochry Boating Station? If I run out of time, how far do I need to walk to have some nice views of the loch? Thanks for your help.
