Loch Iubhair & Loch Dochart

Connected by the River Dochart and situated in stunning Glen Dochart lie the two lochs, lubhair (pronounced yoo-ar) and Dochart. They are located on the north side of the A85 when travelling east from Crianlarich.

These are two of the most northerly lochs in the National Park and they are set amid fantastic Highlands scenery. Adding to the drama of the views across Loch Dochart is a ruined castle on an island.

Walking, especially in the mountains, is popular here because the lochs are surrounded by the giants of Ben More, Cruach Ardrain to the south and Sgiath Chuil neighbouring Beinn Challum in the north.

The River Dochart flows east down the glen to reach the village of Killin where the famous white waters of the Falls of Dochart can be seen  – and heard – before flowing into Loch Tay, just outside the National Park.

Make a stay of it

Whether you’re looking for the comfort of a campsite or the solitude of ‘wild camping’, the National Park offers plenty of places to immerse yourself in some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland.

If you are planning to ‘wild camp’, be aware that seasonal byelaws came into effect on 1st March 2017 which affect how you can camp in some areas between March and September. During this time, you need a permit to camp or (in some locations) to stay overnight in your motorhome in these Camping Management Zones.
