Not too difficult, walking trail, but many interesting routes over the combined length. No great climbs, just pleasant walking, signed and easily navigated.

The food and service at this cafe is perfect! They cook the best cheese and ham toasties I have ever had and supply a lovely variety of food and drinks. The hot apple drink is well worth trying

This was our 14th long distance path and it is excellent. It's at the shorter end of the spectrum at 64 miles but is wonderfully varied. It goes from rolling farmland, to pine forest, to high moorland, to a 2000 ft mountain pass, to sweeping...More

Started from Blairgowrie and did four overnights on a round trip. Had our posh clothes bag shifted from GlenShee to Alyth. After hail and showers and sunshine on day one, we were very lucky to walk most of the trail under blue skies. Fabulous views,...More
