Widely regarded as the entrance to the Scottish Highlands, the Dunkeld area is "Big Tree Country", with fantastic walking opportunities through majestic forests either side of the grand River Tay. Our full-day walking adventures are usually 15-20km in length, with 400-600m of ascent. Usual time, including stops along the way, would be about 6-7 hours. Possible ideas for walks include:
Birnam Hill & Craig Obney - a lovely walk that takes in Birnam Hill and the ancient hill fort on Craig Obney, a hill that offers a great view of the Highland Boundary. The walk could also include the Beatrix Potter visitor centre, the Birnam Oak (a relic of Birnam Wood mentioned in Shakespeare's Macbeth) or Niel Gow's Oak by the River Tay.
Deuchary Hill & Loch Ordie - starting in the scenic village of Dunkeld, we walk up a lovely track to Mill Dam - seeing some evidence of local beavers - and then up Deuchary Hill. This hill might only be just over 500m high, but in decent weather it offers a majestic view in all directions. From here we walk down to Loch Ordie and then back to Dunkeld along tracks and paths. Back in Dunkeld, we can have a look around Dunkeld Cathedral and have a well-earned coffee and cake!
The walk will be private and is available for a group of up to six people through our online booking system. If you have a larger group, please contact us to discuss.
