Perthshire Railway Walk

Perthshire Railway Walk
At just under 24 miles – this is a walk you may want to do in a day or spread over a weekend. It

The route heads into the once turbulent world of the Highlands, a land of Scottish clans and the home of Rob Roy. This fascinating walk will also reveal how the railway line helped bring civilisation to a region famed for its wild and violent history.

Until 1800, few people chose to venture to these remote parts without good reason. The Callander & Oban Railway Company was formed in 1864 with the objective of building a route through the Highlands.

This walk follows the river upstream from Callander, northwards along the western shore of Loch Lubnaig. Three quarters of the way along you will reach the signature feature of this railway, the Glen Ogle Viaduct.

You will be walking part of the Rob Roy Way – there are some steep climbs – but amazing views from the top!

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
