One of Scotland’s Great Trails, the Cateran Trail is a fully waymarked, 64-mile / 103 km route through Perthshire and the Angus glens in the heart of Scotland.

The Supporting the Cateran Trail Scheme is creating a way for businesses and accommodation providers along the Cateran Trail to contribute towards the improvement and maintenance of the much-loved route.

Other than a bit of staff time, there are no costs to you.

There are many ways in which accommodation providers and businesses can collect donations from their guests / visitors. For example, they can:

  • Add a voluntary donation (e.g. £1) per night to guest’s bills
  • Add a voluntary donation per person to guest’s food bills,
  • Have a PBTC display with a donations box for guest contributions.
  • Add a voluntary donation to each cup of hot beverage,

If the visitor does not want to donate, they can simply ‘opt out’.

PKCT also welcomes donations direct from accommodation providers and businesses themselves on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis as part of their contribution towards the Supporting the Cateran Trail scheme.

Donations are paid to PKCT at the end of each quarter.


Demonstrate your green credentials to your guests in a tangible way they can see and experience for themselves.

Additional publicity for your business.

Contribute to ensuring that the landscape around your hotel, B&B or business provides an easily accessible, high quality experience for your guests / visitors.


We will work with staff to inform them of the aims of the scheme so that they can promote it to guests and organise familiarisation trips for them to see the Cateran Trail.

We will keep you informed about the projects being carried out across the Cateran Trail and Mini Trail via a quarterly newsletter.

We will work with you to generate PR and positive media around your support for our environmental work.


For every £1 we receive towards the Cateran Trail, we will be able to obtain match funding for our projects. This means that with your donations we can carry out twice the amount of project work across the Trail.

If your business would like to join the Supporting the Cateran Trail Scheme, please get in touch with our Trust Director, Peter Quinn, who would be delighted to meet with you and answer any questions you may have.
