The steep climb up Birnam Hill was pretty exhausting for us relatively young things. As we sat gasping at the top, wondering if our breathing was ever going to return to normal, we were overtaken by a 93 year old local man who showed us up for the lilly livered Londoners we are! We felt only slightly better after he told us that he'd been walking the hills in the surrounding area for much of his life...

Anyway the walk was fantastic and varied, purple heather everywhere, woodland, moorland, more rugged bits, great views of Dunkeld and the surrounding hills, and not very many other people. Loads of grouse and pheasant about and reputedly deer as well, but disappointingly we never spotted any on this occasion. Once over the other side and back near Birnam Town, we finished with a nice sedate walk by the River Tay.
