“Cateran Trail - undiscovered gem”

Reviewed 13 June 2014

Party of 4 walked the trail at the end of May over 5 days; starting at Bridge of Cally, completing the circular part of the walk and then on the last day walking from Bridge of Cally into Blairgowrie and then out to Alyth on the alternative route. The scenery, countryside and route exceeded expectations. The route is probably the best waymarked long distance path that we have walked; we took maps & guide book but never had to refer to them for any route finding. "Undiscovered gem" - over the 5 days we did not see anyone else walking the trail, in fact we didn't see any other walkers. Some might say the lack of others walking the trail is an attraction - I think it is a shame that such an excellent route, that has clearly had time & effort put into making it easy to navigate, is not enjoyed by more. We based ourselves at Incheoch Granary - an excellent holiday let, on the route, which we would highly recommend. Used two cars for transportation to start/from finish of each day as public transport was not an option - the only minor issue we had with this was parking in Bridge of Cally where options were limited.
Anyone thinking of walking this trail - go do it!!

Very manageable days, although finding accomodation for 8 was a bit of a problem, not helped by the Spittal Hotel being closed. The scenery on the walk was absolutely beautiful and very varied.

This was a tough walk on a very sunny day, from Blairgowrie to Bridge of Cally and back, around 16 miles and mostly uphill on the way there. Very well signposted. Beautiful scenery and countryside. We had a much needed and lovely lunch at the Bridge of Cally Hotel, staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Beautiful views, a (mostly) well marked path and varied terrain. Lots of pubs along the route to quench your thirst. One of the lesser well known long distance routes, so not as busy as the West Highland Way. A fantastic holiday.

It is well signed and passes many local towns leading into the Cairngorms. You can access it at many spots and is mostly dry with some stunning scenery. Suitable for all abilities but not suitable for buggies etc. The cattle rustlers have mostly gone these days.
