Here are some great paths to explore around Crieff and Comrie.

MacRosty Park

MacRosty Park in the valley landform of the Turret Burn to the northwest of Crieff contains a range of natural and man-made features and is a wonderfully scenic place for a wander year round.

The park features a collection of mature trees that provide a peaceful stroll year round, with a Victorian bandstand that hosts concerts and events in the warmer months.

The Hosh Path

The Hosh is a lovely waymarked circular walk following tracks through fields, woodland paths and a terrace with stunning views of the Trossachs. We have recently finished upgrading the path and its drainage to make it more accessible to everyone all year round. There is so much to see along the route, including the Knock, Crieff Hydro and the Glenturret Distillery. The path also passes a stone-built well, dated 1874, the water of which was said to have healing properties and made Crieff into a fashionable resort.

The walk is 2½ miles / 4 km, takes about 1 to 1½ hours and includes some steep parts.
