You will love the beautiful scenery of the Tay River Valley as you leave Aberfeldy behind and head for your ultimate destination of Pitlochry.

The walking along this section is varied but relatively easy as you walk along a minor road and then cross the open moorland towards Pitlochry. The suspension bridge over the River Tummel provides a great finale to your adventure and Pitlochry is a wonderful town to enjoy and celebrate your achievement.

Best parts: going for a drink at Dewar’s to start and almost no pavement walking! Worst parts: no triumphant end-of-Rob-Roy marker, not a ton of incredible views
