Archaeology Walk through the Sma’ Glen
Climb aboard and join an archaeologist from Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust for a day of discovery through a small glen that’s big on Perthshire history! Explore the past human stories of this fascinating glen through a selection of outstanding archaeological sites – from early settlers to 18th century farmers, Roman fort-builders to General Wade’s road-builders.
Walk duration - 5.5hrs Approximately 5km cumulative total by foot and 21.7km by minibus. This walk is a minibus-led tour of archaeological sites situated within and at both ends of the Sma’ Glen. There are short lengths of walking no further than 2km across mixed, undulating, partially tracked and often muddy terrain to reach and explore the sites. Participants should be prepared to climb over a field gate and negotiate short, steep inclines/descents. There are no formal toilet facilities available along the route.
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.
