From the Quaich there is a myriad of attractions to see including castles, historic homes together with distilleries and galleries to explore.

Glen Lyon, Scotland’s longest and some say most beautiful glen, is nearby; Fortingall village is only 3 miles away, which houses Britain’s oldest tree and has a very good restaurant in Fortingall Hotel.

Spectacular waterfalls are a distinctive feature of the area around Shoreside.  These include the Falls of Moness by Aberfeldy, the Falls of Bruar, the Black Spout by Pitlochry and the Falls of Dochart.

The Falls of DochartIn Aberfeldy, the Black Watch Monument commemorates the famous regiment that was originally raised to ‘watch’ the rebellious Highland Clans (families).  The Clan Trail around Loch Rannoch combines more history around this together with the opportunity of enjoying some beautiful scenery.

In the 20th century, Highland Perthshire led the way in green energy as Scotland’s first large scale hydro electricity scheme was built at Loch Tummel.  A new loch, Loch Faskally, was created – this now houses the Scottish Hydro a Visitor Centre with the famous Salmon Ladder, which allows fish to reach their spawning grounds above Pitlochry Dam.

Using the Quaich as a base, there is no end of fantastic sights and places of interest to visit.
