Walk this circular 1.5-mile trail through wooded slopes overhung by birch trees, with a stop along the viewing platform that looks over deep chasms and Strathtay.

Birks of Aberfeldy is seriously worth doing. It's only 5 minutes drive out of Aberfeldy with free parking and is an hour or so circular walk up along the river and multiple waterfalls. I'd recommend taking the right hand, anti-clockwise, path which takes you right...More

A lovely walk a short distance out of Aberfeldy with good paths and a decent car parking area. Can be quite busy during peak holiday times.

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