Glen Quaich

Amulree, Perthshire, is situated at the western extremity of Strath Bran, and a good centre for exploring Glen Quaich, with Loch Freuchie, and also for Glen Cochill and Glen Almond. The road through Glen Cochill, leading
to Aberfeldy, is partly on the line of one of General
Wade’s old roads, and southwards from Amulree the Wade road goes through the delightful Sma’ Glen.

Another road goes north-westwards through Glen Quaich, and climbs to a height of 1,672 ft., before descending very steeply (1 in 4) with a poor surface and sharp bends, to Kenmore, on Loch Tay. To the south-west,
beyond beautiful Glen Almond, rises Ben Chonzie, 3,048 ft. In 1715, the Clans met at Amulree, and were armed for the Jacobite rising.
