Route Location

Details:

This is an easy but enjoyable walk. From Dunkeld railway station head down the steps and follow signs for the Inchewan Walk. After a while another sign indicates the walk to Birnam Hill, so follow this sign and climb steeply through woodland towards Birnam Hill and King’s Seat. After a short descent, make your way over open moorland towards Obney Hill and its summit trig point.

An easy walk now takes you down to the A822. Trail markers will take you back to Little Dunkeld and the end of the walk.

Details:

This circular walk beside the Allt na Bogair, begins and ends at the Forestry Commission car park in Carie. It is a relatively short walk, but offers some beautiful views and even on a wet day, the trees will shelter you for most of the time.

At the half way point, there is an opportunity to extend the walk by continuing north beside the small loch. You can then head towards Dall House, followed by turning east through the trees back to Carie.
