"The Drovers' Tryst was another resounding success. I hope it has been rewarding for yourself and your team as it takes a considerable amount of time and organisation to put on such an event. Well done and I look forward to planning for next year." Ken Heiser
"The Wade Road walk was absolutely excellent. Colin (Liddell) was a very good walk leader and made sure he walked with most of us at some point rather than being always in the front. Everyone was eagerly interested in the information he gave throughout the walk on Wade and the route. Pace was ideal for all ages and abilities and the whole day was well organised, friendly and informative......Overall I was most impressed with the organisation of all the walks and event organisers did a great job contacting people to advise of new availability and to confirm attendance." Jennifer Herd
"Most attendees are looking to meet people, do things together and HAVE FUN - which I did. So thanks." John Davison
"Many thanks I had a great day !!!!"

We had 4 great days with lovely weather
Just to say how much my husband and I enjoyed the photography walk with Keith Ratcliffe on Sunday. A great deal of thought and work had gone into it and his brilliant delivery was matched by the weather. I had an equally fascinating walk in Laggan Woods today led by Alan Dempster and accompanied by his back markers, a veritable mine of information and energy. Please convey my thanks and appreciation to all and best wishes for continued success.
We were originally going to walk the West Highland Way, but were put off when friends who had already done the trek and said that they felt that they didn't get to meet enough people on the walk because they were too busy hiking. What we wanted to do was to make our trip a hiking experience and meet the people of Scotland as well, so we did a Google search on the internet and found the Drovers Tryst in Perthshire. It seemed to us to be the perfect combination of walks and events - so we completely redesigned our holiday trip - and the experience has been well beyond expectations.'

"I most enjoyed the warm, friendly welcome extended by all the walk leaders and other organisers."
"Variety of people (locals and visitors) on the walks. Chance to do linear walks with transport organised, that are otherwise more difficult to arrange."
"The walk I went on was very well organised, the leaders were experienced and relaxed and very knowledgeable about where the walk took us which was great."
"Getting to know the other walkers, and scottish history related to the walk - it so brings the walk to life."
"The Hairy Coo course is fantastic especially the downhill sections. Don't change a thing."
