One of the best things about the, ahem, slightly damper months of the year is that they give us the chance to see our fantastic waterfalls at their very best - and with a healthy walk as part of the package, what could be more invigorating as thoughts turn either towards, or away from, those slightly over the top festive banquets!
The Falls of Moness, of course, were made famous by Robert Burns, and today there is a stunning circular walk right from the heart of the town to the top and back again.
It's a little steep in places and especially in the winter months you will need proper footwear, but this is a must of any trip to the Aberfeldy area!
Another circular route is provided for the superb Falls of Acharn, on the south side of Loch Tay.
The track starts close to the centre of Acharn Village on the south side of Loch Tay. This short, robust route heads away from the loch, ascending through a wooden gorge to a small man made cavern known as the ‘Hermit’s Cave’ and reputed to have been visited by Robert Burns and William Wordsworth in days gone by.
Follow the tunnel though the cave and enjoy the breath-taking view of one of Perthshire’s finest waterfalls, cascading from above as well as the view up Loch Tay to the mighty Ben Lawers.
Exiting the cave, continue up the track to a viewing platform to get a closer view of the burn tumbling over sculpted rock. As this is a circular route, continue along the track to return down the other side and view the Falls of Acharn from a different perspective.
