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.

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

Following in the footsteps of illustrious ancestors such as Rabbie Burns this walk is excellent both for stretching you in terms of fitness and also for its spectacular views. Some parts of the pathways are in need of attention but if you watch where you step there is nothing overly difficult. Would advise walking up the right hand side to... More
