Walks and outdoor attractions
With rivers, hills and woodland aplenty, you won’t be short of walking routes in the stunning Perthshire countryside.
Birnam Hill Path
Take in the views
With a summit of 365m, there are awesome views from King’s Seat. Taking in forest and moorland paths, this 4-mile walk is a fairly strenuous loop but offers magnificent views over Perth. Extend it slightly with a deviation to Stair Bridge, you’ll be glad of the view.
Birnam Riverside Path
Walk from the park into the village of Birnam
This stunning circular route is around 3 ½ miles long and follows an attractive section of the River Tay. Take in the ancient Birnam Oak, one of the only remaining trees of Birnam Wood, made famous in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. You can also enjoy views across to Dunkeld’s cathedral as well as strolling under the historic Dunkeld Bridge.
Loch Ordie Path
A spectacular circular path perfect for a lengthy walk
At around 10 miles long, this circular path is perfect for walking or cycling. Passing through hillsides and woodland, there’s plenty of wildlife to spot including fallow deer and an array of birds. Take a break at Mill Dam on one of their sculptured seats and try your look at spotting mute swans!
Pine Cone Point
A bit of wildlife spotting in the Perthshire countryside
The winding path through woodland will lead to stunning views up Strathtay. Look out for red squirrels, pine martin and plenty of other birds. Extend the walk by completing the Inver Path, a waymarked walk which returns along the River Tay.
