Route Description

Newsflash: the Crieff & Strathearn Drovers' Tryst sees part of this old drove road walked from Ardtalnaig to Dunan (and on to Newton Bridge) on 12th October 2017. Other historic routes featured as part of the festival (7-14 October) include General Wade's Military Road, the hill track from Comrie to Callander, the Rannoch Drove Road and the Kenmore to Amulree track.

Our route description runs from south to north. A quiet public road heads up Glen Lednock from Comrie as far as Coishavachan. From there continue north along a track on the west side of the Invergeldie Burn. The track crosses to the east side of the burn and and heads north-east towards Ben Chonzie, but before long, at NN755291, take a left turn and follow the track back to the Invergeldie Burn and up it to its end. Continue NNW up to the bealach (633m) by a boggy and indistinct path which loses itself in the peaty terrain. Descend north-west across the grassy hillside (no path) to the footbridge and SRWS signpost just east of Dunan near the head of Glen Almond. This section is very featureless and in bad visibility a map and compass are essential, particularly if doing this route in reverse and climbing from the footbridge towards the bealach. From Dunan go north by a rough road over the watershed and down Gleann a' Chilleine to Ardtalnaig.
