Historic Peat Road – Tempar to Fortingall

The walk starts near Kinloch Rannoch and climbs past the western foot of the famous and distinctive Munro, Schiehallion. It then crosses the high and remote Gleann Mor before climbing further, weaving between hills and descending to the village of Fortingall with its World-renowned yew tree. The route is mostly on hill tracks but there is a c.1km pathless but straightforward section. There is a burn and a small river crossing which should be fine under normal conditions but require waterproof boots and balance.

1. Risk.
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.

2. Children.
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.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
