It's not too far a walk from the car park to the viewpoint at Black Spout waterfall: the view is worth the effort!

This is a pleasant circular from Pitlochry which takes about 1.5 hours and is well signposted. The viewing platform at Black Spout is well maintained and after all the rain we've been having, the waterfall was quite spectacular. We walked up a muddy path towards Edradour Distillery, with uninterrupted views of Ben Vrackie dusted with snow, before turning left to... More

Lovely walk with beautiful views of the waterfall. If you're feeling a little adventurous, you can actually walk to the top of it and climb in! We got wet feet and it was well worth it. The ancient woodland is truly a sight to behold on a crisp sunny day. Uphills are fairly steep so don't come unprepared, but overall... More

This is a beautiful walk can be made as long or short as you prefer. There is a car park on the way up where we left our car and walked from up to see the stunning views. Only thing missing was having a dog with us!

We stopped at Black Spout on our way to Edradour Distillary. The walk through the woods was beautiful.

Lovely walk through woodlands and the waterfall was fabulous. We drove to the car park and walked from there but friends walked from Pitlochry, it was an hour and a half round trip through rolling pastures and woodland. Well worth a visit.

Only 20 minute away from Pitlochry by foot, you can find this amazing view. It is a must if you are staying in Pitlochry.

The view from the platform is lovely and well worth the woodland walk to get there. Be careful, the signage isn't that accurate so a bit of doubling back on yourself might happen.

If you are approaching by car it is easy to believe that you are heading into private land. Stick with it because the short walk to the waterfall is easy walk with stunning views The whole of the wood area is a labyrinth of paths that take you to various destinations Went back twice and highly recommend off only to...
