C90 Glen Lochay Road
This article is about the Class III road numbered C90 maintained by Stirling Council.
For other roads numbered C90, see C90

The C90 is the road leading deep into Glen Lochay, south of the more famous Glen Lyon. It starts on the northern edge of Killin at the head of Loch Tay, and heads west, at first following the south side of the River Lochay. After about a mile and a half, the road meanders down to cross the river, and meets the road on the north side at a TOTSO. It seems odd that the longer, less direct route is the C road, when the road on the north bank of the river is not, but this is what is listed on the council website. The C96 now follows the north bank of the river west up the glen, past scattered farms and houses to Kenknock, where it comes to an end. Shortly before the end of the road, a new car park has been provided for the many walkers who climb the hills around the glen. In the past, cars used to litter the roadside at Kenknock, but this area is now gated and looks like a farmyard!

A short distance beyond the gate, a road built by the Hydro Board climbs up through some zigzags to cross to the head of Glen Lyon to the north. This was previously open to traffic at times, but that no longer seems to be the case. The road is in very poor condition, with deep potholes and not really suitable to anything less than a full off road vehicle.
