Glenshee and Strathardle are a veritable treasure trove for walking!  Whether you are after a pleasant amble along the banks of the River Ardle, an energetic hill climb up one or more of the area's Munros (hills over 3000 feet), a bracing walk in one of the forests; you will find all this and more on our doorstep.  Scotland's only circular long distance trail, the Cateran Trail, passes through the area providing an opportunity for a range of shorter and longer walk.

Click here for information about the walk from Enochdhu to the Spittal of Glenshee, the walk to Glen Lochsie and Glen Taitneach, and the hill walks up Mount Blair, Ben Gulabin, The Cairnwell, Carn Aosda and Carn a Gheoidh.  The extensive network of walks in and around the Pitlochry area, including Ben Vrackie, is only a short distance from Strathardle and Glenshee. Click here for further information.

Kirkmichael Paths Network:

Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust have developed the Kirkmichael Paths Network.

The Paths Network was officially opened on 10th December, 2016 by Polly Murray, a local Kirkmichael resident.  Polly was the first female Scot to climb Mount Everest.

The Network of way-marked paths around the village of Kirkmichael is for the benefit of the local community and visitors.

The Paths link in with the Cateran Trail which passes through Kirkmichael village.

There are 4 circular routes – short, easy, medium & upland along 10 miles of signed trails for people to enjoy. 

Paths around the village have been signposted by PKCT, using way-marker posts with arrows and finger posts showing destination & distance.

A number of interpretation panels on the Paths show route maps, as well as information on local history and the outstanding flora and fauna.

You can download the Kirkmichael Paths Network leaflet here:  


The Hallewell Pocket Walking Guide "Walks East Perthshire" provides useful information about a number of walks in the area.  You can purchase the guide in the Blairgowrie Tourist Information Centre, at the Kirkmichael Village Shop or on-line.
