Nothing beats getting out and about to explore.
Many of us know that feeling when you are out walking, knowing you need to walk back, but the sun is beating down on you or the children are getting weary or maybe the rain has caught up with you, so we decided to put together 'Summer Walks with the Bus'! These walks offer you the option of using public transport back to or from Aberfeldy.
Wade's Bridge to Kenmore - Easy walking along the banks of the River Tay.
This route takes you along the banks of the river Tay from the north side of the historic Wade's Bridge, with options to branch up to villages such as Weem, Camserney and Dull. Highland Safaris offers a great stop off along the way with their cafe and family-friendly facilities. You can continue the walk to Kenmore or pop on the Breadalbane Explorer Bus taking you back to Aberfeldy or to Kenmore. If you get to Kenmore we recommend a visit to the Scottish Crannog Centre on the shores of Loch Tay.
Part of the Rob Roy Way linking Aberfeldy and Grandtully - Easy walking.
This path begins just outside Aberfeldy, opposite the Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery. It follows the River Tay before joining up with the old railway track to Grandtully. Grandtully is home to the Highland Chocolatier & Legends Coffee Shop - you may wish to treat yourself after your walk! From Grandtully you can catch the Number 23 service bus back to Aberfeldy.
Strathtay to Pitlochry - the last part of the Rob Roy Way
Park your vehicle in Strathtay or take the Number 23 service bus from Aberfeldy to Grandtully and walk over the bridge to Strathtay. From Strathtay this 3.7 mile walk takes you over Dunfallandy Hill, passing by the ancient ruined stone circle of Carra Beag at the highest point, and close to the Dunfallandy Stone, just by Pitlochry. The Number 24 service bus will take you to Ballinluig, then onto Aberfeldy on the Number 23.
Amulree to Aberfeldy - section of the Rob Roy Way
Take the Breadalbane Explorer bus from Aberfeldy to Amulree. From Amulree take the single track road passing Loch Freuchie and across the River Quaich. Pass through Urlar and continue down towards the Falls of Moness. As you enter the wooded area at the head of the Falls there is a path to the right into the Falls and the Birks of Aberfeldy. From the Birks of Aberfeldy follow the signs to Aberfeldy town centre. This walk stretches 15.25 miles, click here to view a map.
