Dunkeld is an excellent location for walking much of Perthshire with eight local Dunkeld walks, ranging from 3 to nearly 7 miles, total 36 miles in all. Each walk has its own distinct character and each gives a unique insight into the landscape, flora and fauna of Perthshire.

Highland Perthshire (25 Walks S.) Highland Perthshire describes 25 walks in the varied and beautiful area between Blair Atholl, Kenmore and Dunkeld. The scenery is justly famous and the walks visit many areas of local interest, including mysterious standing stones and burial grounds, waterfalls, historic castles and magnificent viewpoints. Illustrated with striking colour photographs, this second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated.
