Highland Perthshire Walks

by Dr N.D. Mortimer

One of our regular guests Nigel has been returning to Tigh Na Cloich hotel in Pitlochry since 1979.
Arriving by train, to explore the area and walk extensively and to enjoy the flora and fauna along the way.

Nigel has kindly put together a description of some of his favourite walks and well trodden paths in and around the Pitlochry and Highland Perthshire area.
We hope you will find them as interesting as we do. All of the walks can be easily accessed from Tigh Na Cloich Hotel on foot or by using the local public transport network.
