Walking in Perthshire
Located amid some of the finest scenery in Britain, Pitlochry makes
an ideal base for a walking holiday.
For the less energetic, there are many walks to choose from - a
leisurely stroll around Loch Faskally, a visit to the Soldier's
Leap at Killiecrankie, or a walk in the grounds of Blair Castle
- but the quality of walking available for the enthusiast in the
area also excels.
The waymarked trails found on Atholl Estates are suitable for a
wide range of experience, but the mountains - Beinn a Ghlo, Cairn
Liath, Beinn Dearg and Carn a Chlamain - or the likes of the Minigaig,
a 33-mile old drovers' road over high, exposed moorland from Blair
Atholl to Kingussie, should be tackled only by the fit and well-equipped.
Further information, including route maps and guided walks, can
be obtained from the Tourist Information Centre ( 01796 472215 )
or Atholl Estates Ranger Service.
Centred around Blair Castle, Atholl Estates covers
a vast tract of Highland Perthshire, extending to some 58,000 hectares
and stretching from beyond Glen Tilt and Glen Bruar in the north
to Dunkeld in the south. The Estates encompass some of the best
walking country in Scotland, including some well-known Munros. Waymarked
trails and guided walks are provided by the Ranger Service. www.atholl-estates.co.uk
