Lying at the eastern end of Loch Leven and with mountains on three sides, this picturesque village developed around an aluminium works built in the early part of the 20th century.

A major hydro-electric plant was later established here. Today it lies on the West Highland Way and is a haven for walkers. One path leads to Grey Mare’s Waterfall - one of the highest waterfalls in Britain – while a second follows an old military trail to the magnificent Pass of Glencoe via the Devil’s Staircase.

A major attraction is a huge indoor climbing centre containing the world’s largest indoor ice climbing facility.
