Trail gets off to a very easy start but as soon as you reach the Cairn the hike becomes a little more difficult with the rocky surface that looks to go on forever. However all the trouble of getting over the rocks is quickly forgotten when you get to the summit and have 360 degree views. It’s worth getting to the base early as limited parking at Brae of Foss. Great credit due to John Muir Trust in maintaining the path and toilet facilities.Show more

This hike starts with a climb to the first peak, Càrn Gorm. After this peak, the trail becomes difficult to find, especially in cloudy conditions. Be sure to record your hike to avoid getting lost. This is truly an incredible route with astounding views of the region.Show more

A relatively flat route enabling camping with heavy backpacks over 3-4 days. Beautiful and untouched scenery. The route begins in Blair Atholl and follows the River Tilt north until it meets the Tarf Water and Allt Feith Lair. After continuing along the route, you will soon enter Mar Lodge Estate National Nature Reserve. The path turns left at the River Dee and leads through Glenmore Forest Park and Abernethy Forest on the way to its destination in Nethy Bridge.Show more

This is a pleasant, undemanding route through Forestry Commission plantation forest with short sections in native woodland. It can be modified to make it longer or shorter. In clear weather the views to Ben Alder and Loch Rannoch are worth every pedal stroke. Carie lies around 3.5 miles west of Kinloch Rannoch on the south side of Loch Rannoch.  The area is rich in natural and cultural history on top of the rather gorgeous scenery and offers a lifetime of exploration! This route largely follows the posted yellow route but leaves it for a while before joining it on the return.  Noting the yellow-marked posts, cycle up out of the car park following the track upstream.  Don't cross the bridge, instead continue upstream for a few metres and the track heads away from the burn towards a large shelter but veers right before reaching it to join a land rover track.  Turn left and head up this track. This is the yellow trail.  You follow the very straight gorge of the Carie Burn uphill until you come to a junction.  Turn right and follow the yellow posts on the fire road.  Shortly you'll see a lochan to your left (it's partially obscured by trees but you can get views of it from a footpath right at the end of the wall). Continue cycling down the fire road and you'll see that the yellow trail heads off into the woods.  This route remains on the fire road for the next few kilometres veering round to the south west and crossing the top of the Dall Burn.  At the next junction turn right.  This eventually takes you to a previous part of the route, only this time you are heading back and downhill towards the main road (avoid turning left down the track to Dall, if you do then just cycle back to Carie along thje lochside road).  After a few kilometres, you will see the yellow post marking the singletrack path back to Carie.  This is lovely to cycle on, just watch out for the rather unfriendly water-bar drains.  There's a lovely spot to sit and look at the view from amongst the oaks (darach is gaelic for oak).  Soon you'll re-cross the land rover track and follow the path down to the car park.  Refreshments and a really useful shop are available in Kinloch Rannoch.Show more
