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.

Decided to visit the birks of Aberfeldy and wasn't disappointed. The scenery is stunning. When I say breathtakingly stunning I mean breathtakingly stunning! Unless your quite fit I wouldn't recommend this walk as some parts of it are very elovated. When you get to the top and see the waterfall you won't be disappointed and those aching calf muscles would... More

The natural beauty and peacefulness of the surroundings with the tracks distinctly marked. It was a reasonably tough climb for a 74 year old, but with several stops on the way up to catch ones breath it was doable in our own time and at our own pace. The views from the higher levels of the climb were remarkable. The... More
