Easy light walk with good views along the river.

Great day out. Some really nice parts of the walk with beautiful scenery. We walked after few rainy days so it was muddy. I mean it. Really muddy. But still, we had a lot of fun.

Very nice, easy walk. Part along the river is very "soothing".

To get from Kenmore entails pavement walking to the bottom of the Glen Quaich road. From there the single track, paved road winds up to the turn off to the actual trail. The trail itself consists of a broad path through the forest area followed by a decent farm track all the way to Acharn. From there you have to hoof it along the Loch Tay, south side road back to Kenmore. There is traffic, but they respect the "walk friendly" signs.
From the trail the Ben Lawers range is visible as is Loch Tay below. Views of Kenmore are great on a sunny day. Lots of sheep around with the occasional deer, pheasant and grouse. Instead of the farm road down from the second bridge over the Acharn Burn, there is a nice trail down the east side with bridge viewpoints of the Acharn falls. The trail also ends in Acharn village.
It's a convenient walk from Kenmore, with no transport required, hence I have done it 34 times during my annual pilgrimage from South Africa.

Very enjoyable walk. Mostly easygoing terrain but with a few steep spots that required scrambling. Not ideal for very young children, but any active child over 6 should be fine. The Alltrails route passes through a carpark where a food van sells tea, coffee, ice cream, snacks etc. (This was open and trading even on Easter Sunday). The route is a nice mix of track, road and field. I was walking in the rain which made parts very muddy and restricted the views in the higher elevations, but even so I would recommend. Hiking solo at a moderate pace with a light pack took about 3 hours. Next time I'll take the diversion to look at Thor's Cave.

It was a beautiful and easy walking, with the sound of the river always making company. Highly recommended!
