Perthshire Railway Walk
This walk will take you into the very heart of Scotland, into an area that has often been called the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’.
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 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.
