Walking guidebook to the highlands of Perthshire.

A range of walks for all abilities.

Seasons

April to August for all routes, with April and May the best of all; autumn is great under the trees, but not necessarily on the hills with gales and rain fairly common and some stalking season restrictions mid-August to 21 October; winter is good for the low-level routes and can also be magnificent on the high mountains for those suitably experienced and equipped

Centres
