Fancy a week-long walking getaway or a nice long walk over the weekend? Then the Cateran Trail is one for you!
With 64 miles / 103 km of trails, stunning scenery and delightful villages perfect for stopping to recharge and refuel, the Cateran Trail has something for everyone looking for a bit of an adventure. Fill your boots with woodlands, glens, moors and more.
Before you come, be sure to plan your visit. Details of transport, accommodation and where to eat change all the time in rural Scotland, so make sure you are always working with the latest information.
We recommend that you use the Traveline Scotland website to plan your travel as it has all the latest timetables and travel details.
There are all kinds of accommodation options on the Cateran Trail from castles to yurts. We recommend the Trip Advisor or Airbnb websites to help you find them - search for Blairgowrie (or Blairgowrie and Rattray on Airbnb), then use the map view to zoom out and see all the options around the Trail.
The Cateran Trail Guidebook also contains detailed information on planning your visit, including all the information you need on travel, eating, sleeping, weather, underfoot conditions and much more. Visit our shop to buy a copy.
