Walk Details

Starting at the Crieff Hydro, this is a walk along some easy paths, offering lovely views of the surrounding area.

From the hotel itself, where car parking is available, we head up towards The Knock car park that overlooks the town, and then keep going towards the Activity Glen (you’ll see the high ropes course on your left). From here the tarmac road goes left – but we’re going straight ahead on the rougher path!

We descend and have wonderful views across lower Glen Turret ahead of us. We keep going down until we reach a signposted junction where we turn right and soon reach (and cross) a wooden footbridge.

On the other side, turn left and we keep going until we reach the tarmac road where we go left until we reach the Turret bridge. Crossing that we come to the Glen Turret distillery (which was once known as the Famous Grouse Experience – hence the copper statue outside!). As one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland – it’s worth a visit if you have the time.

When you’re ready – from the visitor centre car park, we pass behind the buildings and to a wooden footbridge and cross over it. Over the other side, we follow the path as it climbs to reach a junction. We’re turning right, sharply, here and continue on through the trees, close to the river until we get to the next junction and take a left (sign posted for Culcrieff).

The walk heads steeply uphill here through the trees. We zig-zag up to ease the ascent! At the lane we then turn left. Just before the balconied self catering houses we take the signed path on the right which is signposted to the Crieff Hydro Hotel
