A pretty loch-side picnic spot where you can relax, stretch your legs and enjoy stunning views across Loch Tay

Dalerb

Unwind by the water

The tree-covered slopes of Drummond Hill above Dalerb are home to the capercaillie, one of Scotland's iconic woodland birds. After being hunted to extinction, they were reintroduced here in 1837. They are very hard to find in the forest – but the life-sized bronze statues at the picnic site should be easy to spot.
