Tour Scotland video of Moirlanich Longhouse in Glen Lochay by Killin. The longhouse at Moirlanich is an important and rare survival of a once common type of Scottish building.

Lochs and Glens [02:15]
Lochs and Glens follows a delightful mix of ancient drovers paths, military roads, disused railway lines and picturesque lanes from Loch Lomond, north through the Southern Highlands to the rich farmland of Perthshire. This is iconic Scotland: it is fantastic cycling country. Riding along the shore of Loch Venachar, over the viaduct at Glen Ogle or along the River Tay might be your personal highlight, but there's not a dull mile. There are hills -- it's the Highlands, after all -- but your efforts are consistently rewarded with grand descents, and an endless stream of majestic views of the forests, rivers, waterfalls, wild moorlands, Munros and dark lochs. Sleepy tea rooms, a distillery tour, welcoming pubs, watching salmon leap, a recreated Iron Age loch dwelling, a castle or even a refreshing wild swim may tempt you from the saddle temporarily, but never for long -- cycling the Lochs and Glens route is just too good.
