Old Killin Kenmore and Loch Tay
Old Killin Kenmore and Loch Tay, Perthshire, Scotland. For long the area of influence for the Campbells of Breadalbane, the area around Loch Tay was subject to their improvements to the land and also their clearance of many people from the area in the nineteenth century. However, the family were largely responsible for the arrival of the railway and the development of many local industries, as well as the provision of housing, churches, hostelries and even the passenger ships that once steamed around the loch. Among the bygone sights featured in this comprehensive history, are the steamships Queen of the Lake and Lady of the Lake, the Killin Hotel before its fire in the 1930s, and Taymouth Castle in its magnificent heyday. Other communities featured include Lawers, Acharn, Ardeonaig, Fearnan, Ardtalnaig, Glen Lochay and Glen Dochart. Old Killin, Kenmore and Loch Tay (Stenlake).
