Great Walks, Stunning Scenery, Fine Company and more!
Welcome to the Drovers' Tryst Walking Festival
The 2013 Tryst is over, but next year's Tryst will run from the 11th to 18th October 2014
Crieff & Strathearn Drovers' Tryst annually celebrates the life, work and play of the people who made Crieff the cattle-droving crossroads of Scotland in the 1700s. The modern day Tryst is run by volunteers and built around a programme of guided walks in the stunning scenery and autumn colours of Strathearn & surrounding areas of Perthshire. The walks vary in difficulty but all are enriched by wildlife, plants, trees, history and the company of like-minded people.
Complementing the walks is a series of enjoyable evening social events, with music, drama, film and dancing! The Tryst also embraces a mountain bike event, and there is great food and drink to be enjoyed in local restaurants and cafes, a wide choice of places to stay and many other interesting attractions. And a Photography Competition too!
The 2014 programme is being finalised and will appear here in April. In the meantime, any events shown on this website are from last year or are part of our testing process.
