Kenmore Hill on the eastern edge of the Bolfracks estate was once part of the Great Caledonian Forest that historically covered most of the Scottish Highlands. Through a carefully managed regeneration program the remnants of the ancient pinewoods are being restored to recreate Scotland’s natural heritage.
With support from the Forestry Commission and the Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust Bolfracks estate have created a network of paths to allow visitors to enjoy the spectacular scenery, wildlife and landscape.
There is a choice of three way marked paths and all are clearly sign posted. All routes begin at the car park, which can be reached from the Kenmore to Amulree road. Ranging from 1.5km(30mins) to 4.1km (90mins) the walks take in some great views over Loch Tay and over the Tay valley, beautiful waterfalls and in you are quiet and lucky sightings of local wildlife.
Red Grouse, buzzards and Kestrels are common sights. Black grouse that are in general decline in other areas are making a significant comeback within the wooded habitat on Kenmore Hill.
The Rob Roy Way is a long distance walk between Drymen, just north of Glasgow to Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire. Rob Roy Way is 79 or 92 miles - 127 or 148Km dependent on route choice. Along Loch Tay the route taken follows the Queen's Drive, name so after Queen Victoria who was inspired by the views from this pathway and on to Bolfracks Estate before descending down in to Aberfeldy.
