Aberfeldy, Loch Tay & Glen Lyon offer the widest possible choice of walking, from gentle riverside strolls to challenging long distance routes.
Of course, it would be hard to talk about walking in the area without mentioning the justifiably famous Birks 'O' Aberfeldy,
closely associated with Robert Burn's visit in 1787, and to this day a truly memorable hour or two beside the Moness burn, with waterfalls, gorges and views a-plenty!
Between the historic Wade's Bridge at Aberfeldy and the River Lyon lie the hamlets of Weem, Camserney and Dull, from where a network of paths work their way up through forestry to great views or onto open moorland. The short trail at Wee Woods is ideal for families, featuring mysterious sculptures.
With The Rob Roy Way meandering through the areayou really are spoilt for choice. Looming above Loch Tay is Ben Lawers, Scotland's 10th highest mountain,
offering a popular day for well prepared walkers among rare alpine flora and fauna. If your energy levels don't stretch to the full 968m ascent, why not enjoy the Ben Lawers Nature Trail for a taste of a unique environment. Another of the mountains in the area, Schiehallion, is one of the most popular munros in Scotland, and for many experienced "munro baggers" was the first in their often lifelong quest. The Poetry Path at Corbenic Camphill Community mixes walking with sculpture & poetry.
Realistically, we could spend hours writing about the walks in our beautiful area - and still not cover them all! Our recommendation is that you discover and enjoy them for yourself.
