The River Lochay is a small tributary in the upper catchment close to Killin. The river starts in the mountains to the west and joins the River Dochart just before entering Loch Tay. It runs through a small secluded glen running west from Killin. Close to the village bank access can be a little challenging with lots of overhanging trees.

Above the falls the river is in much more open countryside. This is a truly highland area. If walking it is advisable to let a friend know when and where you are going and to let the local keeper know of your activities. Many of the uplands are also used for hunting and stalking and conflict can easily be avoided by courtesy.

The river has sadly been subjected to hydrofication. The fish pass built around the falls (grid ref. NN 543 352) has frequently been used by the Scottish Office for scientific studies.
 
Fishing is not permitted around these hydro works for obvious reasons of safety.
 
The area around Boreland House is also out of bounds.

The Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board intends to undertake work on the fish pass in year 2001 to make it easier for fish to make their way upstream.
