Glen Quaich, one of Scotland's best backroads tour routes

This afternoon, I am reporting the route of Glen Quaich in Central Scotland.

This is a scenic, single track road which is usually closed to traffic in winter.

The route covers about twelve miles and runs between the villages of Amulree and Kenmore on the northern tip of Loch Tay in Perthshire.

Depending on time of year it is possible to encounter low lying snow, many sheep, grouse and other exceptional opportunities for photography.

Incidentally, Quaich means a drinking cup. In a certain place the landscape is shaped like a bowl.
