Heart of Scotland Walks

25 Walks in the Heart of Scotland. The Heart of Scotland is the magnificent walking country between Stirling and Perth, extending west to St Fillans and Loch Earn and north to Amulree in the Sma Glen. Easily accessible from all of central Scotland, it is a paradise for walkers.

The walks described here take in some of the most beautiful scenery in central Scotland. Included in this volume are routes where William Wallace fought and won his famous battle, the spectacular and popular Ochil Hills, Scotland’s oldest distillery at Glenturret, and the hiddden gem of Pitcairns Den. 25 Walks: Heart of Scotland (25 Walks).

The Rob Roy Way: From Drymen to Pitlochry This long-distance walk from Drymen to Pitlochry was developed by Rucksack Readers in partnership with walking enthusiasts. It runs for 79 miles (126 km) along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycle route, forest tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). The route has no official status, but was negotiated with private landowners, Forest Enterprise, Stirling and Perth Councils and others. The Way offers superb views, but is less strenuous than the West Highland Way. It is not fully waymarked as such, but the book gives detailed directions and most of it is straightforward. Walkers are always advised to carry a compass, but are unlikely to need it unless walking an exposed section in winter. This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: background on Rob Roy MacGregor, history, heritage and wildlife; summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops; drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels; visitor attractions and hills to climb (Munros, Corbetts and Grahams); special notes for people with no previous experience; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane; foreword by Sir David Steel, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament; in full colour, with over 60 photographs; waterproof paper throughout.
