What we're about

Hi, we're a friendly welcoming outgoing group for everybody that enjoys outdoor activities in Perthshire and beyond. Perthshire is a big place, so this is your opportunity to get together with new friends to do lots more in the “Big Tree country” and beyond.

Check out our FB page for updates - https://www.facebook.com/groups/PerthshireO...

Our plans include a diverse programme of A,B or C level walks, including

• Energetic Munro and Corbett hikes, long distance hill and moorland walks and shorter strolls around local attractions

• Mixed biking excursions with outdoor experiences, such as wildlife trails around Loch Leven, visits to the seal sanctuary at Tentsmuir

• Walks based on scenic attractions with extensions, for example, the Birks of Aberfeldy combined with a section of the Rob Roy Way

• Sampling innovative walks such as Scotlands "Via Ferratas"

• Sections of National walks, such as favourites from the West Highland Way, Rob Roy Way, Fife Coastal Path and lots more

• Visits to sites of natural beauty or national interest, such as the V&A, Dundee

ISLE OF MULL - Week on the Isle of Mull 15th to 22nd MAY 2020 .

Week on the Isle of Mull, May 15th to 22nd. This is an event organised by the Crochallan Mountaineering Club (a group affiliated to Mountaineering Scotland, of which our member Rob Griffith is the Hon. Secretary). There are currently still a few places available, which the Club would like to fill in order to make the venture viable, otherwise it may have to be cancelled. This may interest some members of the POSG. The venue is Killiechronan House, a self-catering establishment at the head of Loch na Keal, well-placed for mountain and coastal walks on the island. Rooms can be single or shared. There are details of the venue on-line, which anyone interested can check, rather than trying to cover everything in this message. On the basis of ten occupants, the cost would be just under £200 per person for the week. Some communal catering may be arranged, but participation in this would be optional. It would also be possible to combine transport for travel to Oban and the ferry to Craignure. ALL ENQUIRIES TO ROB. If POSG members would like to know more, please contact Rob directly on one of the following:[masked],[masked], or message through meetup.
