What we're about

Hi, we're a friendly welcoming 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

We look forward to meeting you on one of our walks in the near future.

Cheers, Mike, John, Jan and Jamie.
