The 2024 Tryst will  take place from 10th to 13th May inclusive.  Thank you to all our volunteers and walkers for helping to make the 2023 Tryst a great success!  We hope you all enjoyed  it and look forward to welcoming you back next year!




We are always keen to welcome new volunteers, so please let us know if you are able to help out next year (in any capacity, from assisting with the administration to leading Extra Hard walks). Please email us at:


Scotland’s Friendly Walking Festival – Great Walks, Stunning Scenery, Fine Company and more!    Crieff & Strathearn Drovers’ Tryst annually celebrates the life, work & traditions 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 spring 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.

‘Scotland’s Friendly Walking Festival’ values its members who benefit from early access to walk bookings, receive regular newsletters and can access publications like Scottish Mountaineering.  By becoming a member you can also get involved in running the Tryst and contributing to the walk programme.  If you are interested in supporting the Tryst and becoming a member, which of course is FREE, please click HERE for further information.
