Welcome to Glen Lyon

From Fortingall, a narrow road winds up the glen, while another steep and spectacular route from Loch Tay crosses the hills to meet it at Bridge of Balgie. The road continues west as far as the dam on Loch Lyon, passing a memorial to Robert Campbell (1808–94; a Canadian explorer and fur trader, born in the glen).

There are no villages in the glen – the majestic scenery is the main reason to be here – just a cluster of houses and a tearoom at Bridge of Balgie.
