Many thanks to The Milton of Fonab Caravan Park in Pitlochry for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. Milton of Fonab is a quiet, family run, Caravan Park on the south side of Pitlochry next to the River Tummel. The River Tummel is one of the major tributaries of the Tay runs a picturesque 58-mile course from Loch Rannoch to the River Tay in Perthshire, passing through Pitlochry. The upper reaches of the river are the final destination for the salmon that work their way upstream from their Atlantic feeding grounds, which includes navigating the salmon ladder at Pitlochry Dam which is just around the corner from our camera location. It is largely a Victorian town, whose success as a tourist resort was due to Queen Victoria visiting the area in 1842, and the arrival of the railway in 1863. It remains a popular tourist resort today and is particularly known as a centre for hillwalking, surrounded by mountains such as Ben Vrackie and Schiehallion.
