Great place for a brisk and steep walk to work up your appetite or convince you to go to bed early. Well maintained and very popular although only seemed busy at all at the weekend

Had a lovely walk through the Birks of Aberfeldy. Last time we were here was 30 years ago pleased to say it is just as lovely as we remember. The path is well maintained and lots of lovely scenery to be had throughout.

The right hand path from the car park is easier than the left which contains many wooden steps .
