Coffee in Jerusalem, Drinks at the Falls of Dochart Inn
A linear walk from The Four Seasons Hotel in St Fillans to Killin. Along the way we will visit the ruins of Jerusalem, an abandoned township, which was probably a victim of the “clearances.” From here spectacular views over Loch Earn are possible. Then on through quiet Glen Tarken and Glen Beich, across no man’s land to Lochan Breaclaich Reservoir, before dropping down into Killin. Along the way you will be able to see the standing stones at Kinnell. Finally, whilst enjoying a well-earned rest at Killin you will be able to marvel at the sight and sounds of the world famous spectacular Falls of Dochart which are just above the ancient burial ground of Clan MacNab who once held sway over the area.

For Medium, Hard and Extra Hard walks we ask walkers to make sure they have full hillwalking gear, by which we mean definitely the following: Boots, warm clothing, warm/quick drying trousers (not denim jeans), waterproof jacket and over trousers, rucsac, hat, gloves, spare fleece, packed lunch, spare food and drink, small personal first aid kit including any medications, mobile phone, headtorch, and bivvy bag if you have one, and possibly also these other items, depending on personal preference: Gaiters, rucsac cover, walking poles, spare socks, map, compass, GPS, lipsalve, camera.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
