“Great trail in the heart of Scotland”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Beautiful views, a (mostly) well marked path and varied terrain. Lots of pubs along the route to quench your thirst. One of the lesser well known long distance routes, so not as busy as the West Highland Way. A fantastic holiday.

“A good ramble”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

It is well signed and passes many local towns leading into the Cairngorms. You can access it at many spots and is mostly dry with some stunning scenery. Suitable for all abilities but not suitable for buggies etc. The cattle rustlers have mostly gone these days.

“Superb trail”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We walked the 6/7 miles from bridge of cally to blairgowrie, really lovely walk (wear boots and don't be afraid to get dirty). Also try out the blue bell wood walk, ardblair trail and knockie path/trail. All are a few miles each in length around blairgowrie and lovely.

A great trail we walked about 6 miles on it, its easy to follow and very scenic we will be back to complete the rest of it at some point.

“Wow, do it in Autumn!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had a great hike in mid-September. However, at this time of the year make sure you book early as we'd left it to a couple of days before and due to the pub in Glenisla being closed there was nowhere to stay. We had to get our B&B in Glenshee to shuttle us back and forwards for a couple of days.

The colours of the trees (specifically on the shorter route back from Alyth to Blairgowrie) were amazing!! You'd think you were in Eastern Canada. Best to leave early in the mornings so you're not arriving in the dark. We brought a Thermos with us and had soups during the day, there is a huge Tesco in Blairgowrie to buy whatever you need.
