Today is a challenging and interesting day of walking in this beautiful part of Scotland and there are numerous points of both natural and man-made interest to admire along the way.

The initial section to Acharn follows a minor road but then you will enjoy a mix of rough paths and even some gorge walking prior to arrival in Aberfeldy. The Scottish Crannog Centre is worth a visit if you are interested in the historical aspects of the area; otherwise Dewar’s World of Whisky just north of Aberfeldy provides a good reward at the end of a long day.

Annoying road walking at the beginning, but we enjoyed the multiple interesting waterfalls. Varied scenery throughout day.
