The Drovers’ Tryst: Great Walks, Stunning Scenery, Fine Company and more!

This year’s Tryst will run from 5th to 12th October 2019.

We are now open for bookings!

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 a walking festival 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 outdoor activities is a series of enjoyable evening social events, with talks, music, drama and film, and Crieff has great food and drink to be enjoyed in local restaurants and cafes, a wide choice of places to stay and many other interesting attractions.

For all the budding photographers out there, we encourage you to send your photos from walks, or any other Tryst events, into our photo competition. Lots of people now use their phones for photography and to help you get the best pictures from your mobile devices we have prepared ’12 Tips for Smartphone Photography’ which you can view here .
