I love this location and it is the most stand-out spot in the area so take the a few minutes of your life when in Dunkeld to stretch your legs and suck up the views.

Recommended by staff at the Royal Mail for easy hiking. Very easy to get to and park at. Beautiful surrounds. And a mostly gentle and short hike to a lovely panoramic view. It wasn’t busy when I walked - which added to the peacefulness.

The Picaninny is an easy 2.4km return walk in the Grampians National Park which rewards you with magnificent views of Mount Abrupt and Dunkeld. Go for it!

The perfect introduction to the Grampians, this not-too-strenuous walk offers great views. Although it did make me wish I was fit enough to scale one of the big ones...
