We are fairly active and fit and this was a very steep walk up to the waterfalls - wouldn't recommend it for the unfit! However, it was well worth the walk for the fantastic waterfalls at the top. I'd recommend going up the right side and down the left but be warned... it is very steep with some very steep... More

Took a wander up the birks on a lovely sunny tuesday morning. We went and followed the footpath to the right which had the best views over the many waterfalls first. Quite a steep climb up nearer the top part of the walk but worth it for the fabulous views.

The setting for Robert Burns' eponymous poem. A lovely, easy, well-maintained walk along the river, past a number of small waterfalls. We were staying in Aberfeldy andwere looking for somewhere to go for a run. It was a little steep for running at times but beautiful.

After parking in the top car park, we walked up along the paths by the river. There are several water falls here which make for great pictures and as its easy and the paths are well maintained its ideal for the whole family.

Easy to follow walking trails lead from the Birks car park up through a series of tumbling falls. Culminating in the upper falls. The pats can be a little steep in places but are easily navigable. Watch out for red squirrels and tawny owls. Allow 2 hours or more.

This was a really lovely walk, starting right at the centre of Aberfeldy. The beech trees were amazing. It's quite steep in places when you're going up, so maybe need to stop and rest at times. Found a nice little rocky outcrop near the top to sit and have a picnic watching the river.

We came on a grey wet day but even so it was a delight to walk round. The path is well maintained and the views are lovely. I suggest you walk clockwise to best appreciate the waterfalls.

We were staying about 20 minutes drive from Aberfeldy at the Logierait Lodges, which by the way are excellent. Up bright and early, excellent cooked breakfast and off we went.You can start the walk in the very center of Aberfeldy or drive up to the Birks car park. At the start, there is an option to either go up the... More
