Quality access to the countryside provides great opportunities to improve health and wellbeing and is vital for the local tourism economy. Revenue from tourism in Perth and Kinross is worth nearly £400 million annually with 12% of the local employed in the tourism sector compared with 7% for Scotland as a whole! The project will involve the local community, the Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust and a local contractor. https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/5112 The Cateran Trail is one of 26 designated Great Trails found in Scotland.
