This is a circular walk easily reached from Aberfeldy, either by following signs in the town, or by taking the road towards Crieff and parking in the car parks just after the traffic lights by the bridge. The path is easy to follow but very steep in parts. For the best experience take the path so that the river is... More

Parked in the lower car park and took the path to the left of the circular walk (clockwise) and climbed up via a series of paths and steps. This side is more covered and can be a bit muddy in places, but there are some seats to sit and rest if required. The views are well worth the climb and... More

Quite a trek on the way up but well worth it to see the waterfalls, rocks and the spectacular views looking down and up. See Rabbie on the way up, don't know how he managed to write poetry after that climb. Walk is well laid out, bridges, steps and fences making sure of safety although we saw countless wee doggies...

Beautiful walks by the Birks of Aberfeldy even though it was rainy the scenery is breathtaking. The water falls are just amazing.

Beautiful walk in the centre of aberfeldy. Fairly steep at times but really good paths. Different feel to the walk in each season. We last visited when there were carpets of wilg garlic. The smell was amazing. River views change depending on how much Scottish rain there has been.

A great medium length circular walk, through woodland and alongside rushing water all the way round. Some lovely views, birds singing, many waterfalls, uphill one way, and downhill on the other side. Well marked pathways, steps and bridges to cross, so you can't get lost. Convenient free parking. A truly charming area.

If its views you want, nature at its best, fresh Scottish air, stunning scenery, the sounds of waterfalls and babbling brooks, take yourself here for a few hours. The walk does get steep towards the top so not suitable for all, but the rewards that await with the top waterfall are worth every ounce of effort, an absolute must visit.

Lovely walk with very good footpaths. Quite steep in places but the waterfall at the top is well worth the hike. Interesting information along the way about Rabbie Burns. Highly recommended.
