Crieff Golf Course
Whether it’s a gentle stroll or Munro Bagging, all can be tackled from Inchglas. The town even has it’s own walking festival. www.droverstryst.com will provide lots of information on the paths and trails.
An Inchglas favourite walk is Lady Mary’s Walk which is a popular and beautiful route in along the banks of the River Earn, with an avenue of mature oak, beech, lime and sweet chestnut trees. It’s a lovely walk at any time of year but particularly in Autumn when the colours are stunning. Lots of birdlife can be observed from the banks – oystercatchers and dippers a plenty but also heron, kingfishers and wagtails. For a longer walk, adding in the circular route to Laggan Hill is worth the effort and the views of the town and surrounding countryside make it well worth the effort.
