Lady Mary's Walk, Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland

Summary

 

A short walk along a good track beside the river Earn and back to Crieff via an ancient drove road.  We enjoyed it during a long weekend family stay at Crieff Hydro Hotel, and managed to fit it in between a late leisurely lunch and our evening meal.

 

The route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs if the first uneven section is avoided by starting and finishing on the Laggan Road.

 

  • I’ll remember most that this was a perfect circuit for an easy afternoon walk
  • On a warm sunny day there was plenty of shade
  • The best bit was the sunlight sparkling off the water
  • The trickiest bit was working out how the stony first section could be avoided by wheelchairs
  • We hadn’t expected to see the series of individually hand-crafted benches with messages carved into them
