Glen Tarken


    Glen Tarken is a glen in Perthshire that rises above the picturesque village of St Fillans on Loch Earn.

    The heather-clad Glen Tarken is home to a beautiful woodland walk which climbs from the west side of the village and on through Glen Tarken wood. From the wood, there are fantastic opportunities to admire Loch Earn and the surrounding high mountains.

    There is a deserted settlement on the hillside known as Morell or Easter Glen Tarken which is located 1.5 miles (2.5 km) west of St Fillans. The settlement was deserted in the 19th century after villagers found life on the exposed site inconvenient and uncomfortable. Parts of the settlement still remain which visitors can admire.
