Just outside Aberfeldy tow, this little gem is a must do. 2mi of relatively easy uphill and downhill walk along a roaring stream. You are treated to views from top of the waterfall if you do the uphill climb. Go from the left trail if you prefer steps while walking up. Every corner is a treasure. Also great photo ops.

Nice walk but is quite steep on way up. Lots of waterfalls to see. Not too long took us about an hour. If you want a leisurely walk would take longer. Nice wide paths but some slippery bits on way down where rocks are but also amazing waterfall views round these parts, but to be expected after rain. Would recommend... More

Peaceful walk with stunning scenery and a great selection of plants and trees. Lovely waterfalls. Some aspects of the walk are a bit steep so not recommended for wheelchair users. A lovely walk regardless of weather.

We walked up the Birks and it was a good hike . Unsuitable for disabled due to paths and it can be slippy. Beautiful waterfall all the way to the top then over the bridge and down the other side . Lovely scenery well kept walk and the info about trees and on plants is on little plaques underneath them.... More

Great short but strenuous walk. Steep uphill climbs for half the walk and downhill for the second half of this circular walk. Great waterfalls and scenery throughout. Can extend the walk to Kenmore which adds another 7 miles one way.

We did this walk quite late in the day after doing another waterfall walk. It's a beautiful circular walk we saw deer on the hillside, woodpeckers and many birds using our binoculars. The top of the moness waterfall is stunning and the route pretty easy, but rather muddy. Would love to see it in Spring. It took us about 1... More

Fantastic wee walk of around 2 miles with great views especially if the river is in spate. At the top end, you can carry on to Kenmore, a further 7 miles or a shorter version a couple of miles further.

This is one of those areas of Scotland that is worth going off the beaten track just to walk. Its a relatively short walk in stunning scenery...the water and the trees make it sublime. Not to be missed.

This is such an amazing walk. I dod it with my 2 girls (2+6) and they manage it even in the snow. If you are on your own you could probably do the loop in 45mins... Gorgeous all year round...
