Story

Schiehallion, from the Gaelic Sìdh Chailleann, translates to “Fairy Hill of the Caledonians”. This magical mountain is a key feature of the Perthshire landscape. It has fascinating archaeology, a rich natural habitat, wondrous folklore and a very important place in scientific history.

The mountain lies in western Perthshire, between Lochs Rannoch, Tummel and Tay, approximately 10 miles from Aberfeldy. At 1083m (3553ft) high it is one of the most accessible and popular Munros with beautiful views from the summit.

To the north of Schiehallion lies Strath Fionan, a valley leading to Kinloch Rannoch via Braes of Foss. It is dotted with quarries and features an impressive limestone pavement near Lochan an Daim that is well worth a visit.

The road alongside Schiehallion which follows Strath Fionan is known locally as The Goat Track, due to the legend of the Gabhar – a mythical creature that was part goat, part man, part wildcat. This terrible beast was known to prey on anyone who tried to cross the ford in the road after sunset.

This wonderful mountain has so many stories to tell. The following images reveal some of my favourites which were encountered during my research.
