Falls of Dochart, Killin

On our trips around the country with the good lady’s blog pal Peggy we ventured west and took a small detour to Killin to see the Falls of Dochart.

It only occurred to me later that I should have taken a video to show the movement of the water and capture the noise.

Killin War Memorial

Killin stands at the head of Loch Tay on what used to be Perthshire but it is now in Stirling District. Its War Memorial is a dignified statue of a Higland soldier. It’s in a lovely setting by the River Dochart just above the falls.
