Multi Day Hikes in Perthshire

Rob Roy Way
From Drymen, on the bonny banks of Loch Lomond, this 6-8 day trail winds it's way through spectacular scenery to its fitting end destination of Pitlochry. 127 km of paths are the challenge here. It's Perthshire route includes the magnificent scenery of the entire length of Loch Tay and the waterfalls of the Birks of Aberfeldy.
The Caterans were fierce Cattle thieves who raided the farms of Strathardle. The Cateran Trail is named after them and not so fierce. It's a 4 to 5 day circular route that can be started at any point, traditionally it is in Blairgowrie many will start though. With 106 km of Perthshire and Angus glen's and hills, there are spectacular views yet it's a very manageable adventure.
