Pitlochry Waymarked Paths
Waymarking of nearly 41 miles of paths.
Surrounding the small, historic settlements of Pitlochry, Moulin and Killiecrankie is a network of nearly 41 miles/66km of waymarked paths and tracks which extends over an area of 18 square miles of countryside. The Countryside Trust has freshly re-signed this entire path network with 250 new colour coded waymarkers.
There are six walks to choose from which radiate out into a natural amphitheatre of forested hills on both sides of the Rivers Garry and Tummel. Combinations of these walks can be linked to offer a wide choice of scenery, distance and destination.
In Autumn in particular, the Killiecrankie Walk is quite stunning. The photo shows the view from the walk looking toward Killiecrankie and Creag Eallaich. It was taken in November during the way marking project. The walk goes right through this gorge and takes in Soldier's Leap - a spectacular viewpoint where Donald MacBane fighting on the side of the Redcoats made an amazing 18 foot leap across the gorge to escape the Jacobite Scots at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689.
