Cateran Trail Summary

Cateran Trail: a Circular Walk in the Heart of Scotland by Jacquetta Megarry

The Cateran Trail is one of Scotland's Great Trails - a circular walk of 64 miles (104 km) starting in Blairgowrie, near Perth, following in the footsteps of cattle-rustlers (caterans). This waymarked Trail follows ancient paths through glens, mountains and farmland of Highland Perthshire, with fine scenery, heritage and wildlife. The nearest village is never more than 7 miles (11 km) away, and gradients are easy to moderate. The Trail can be completed comfortably within 4-5 days, and several route variants are described, including the option for a weekend Minitrail.

Our expanded and updated second edition with 35 fine photographs from professional Mike Bell was launched in Blairgowrie in 2015. With detailed mapping (Footprint, 1:50,000) and updated route descriptions, this second edition took a giant stride forward.

Cateran Trail Reviews

My immediate reaction, on receiving and looking at the guidebook, was to want to put on my boots and step out on the Trail. The informative background, clear instructions and attractive photographs make it appear a very appealing route ... Separate boxes highlight many points of interest that could easily be missed, such as Diarmid's Tomb near the Spittal of Glenshee.; (Felicity Martin in the Perthshire Advertiser); Another of Rucksack Readers' excellent waterproof guides ... the Cateran Trail allows walkers to appreciate the beauty of an all too often overlooked area of the country.;(Undiscovered Scotland)
