Perth & Kinross Countryside Trust’s recent project at the Kirkmichael path network has involved the waymarking of over 10 miles of paths with short, medium and longer routes to suit all abilities. 4 new interpretation panels are being created and a new path network leaflet is to be produced, which will be available to download at their website.
The project has been a collaboration between PKCT and the Mount Blair Development Trust with PKCT managing all the contract work. Funding has come from the Drumderg Wind Farm, Commonwealth Games Legacy Fund, Awards for All and the PKC Community Environmental Challenge Fund.
Kirkmichael is 12 miles to the west of Pitlochry and has great long distance path links to Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Glenshee. Nearby Kindrogan Forest is also well suited to mountain bikers.
There are a number of excellent hotels, B&Bs and pubs in the village and the Cateran Trail runs right through.
