Loch Voil

Loch Voil's Dimensions:8km long

Road Access for Loch Voil: Via the A84 from Callander Main Road

 

Loch Voil is a narrow and approximately 8km long freshwater loch that lies to the west of Balquhidder. It drains water from the smaller Loch Doine through the River Larig and is drained by the River Balvaig at its northern end. Visitors can access the loch via a small single track road from Balquhidder that leads to Inverlochlarig.

 

There are many mountain walks in this area and it is also good for cycling. You can enjoy the scenery around the loch and of the Strathyre Forest or join cycle route 7 in Balquhidder. Route 7 follows a disused railway line and is a mostly level and pleasant cycle.

 

In Balquhidder you can visit the Old Kirk where you can find the grave of Rob Roy MacGregor. Rob Roy is a Scottish folk hero who became famous through Sir Walter Scott’s novel about his life. Even though there are many visitors each year to the burial site, the place remains tranquil and unspoilt.

 

Loch Voil is a great Salmon and Brown trout loch. There are boats on hire from the Lochside Cottages in Balquhidder and a local ghillie can provide useful help if you arrange for it in advance. Fishing is restricted to the south shore of the loch and permits can be obtained from Mrs C. Oldham in Balquhidder or James Bayne’s tackle shop in Callander.

 

Wildlife around Loch Voil includes deer, both Red and Roe, pine martens, otters, red squirrels and a wide variety of birds such as pheasants, buzzards, eagles,barn owls and ospreys.
