Crieff to Comrie Via Glen Turret (return to Crieff by bus)

A very scenic 6 hr walk from the Western fringes of Crieff to Comrie - via the Turret resevoir and Deil's Cauldron waterfall. Returing by bus.

A scenic walk from Macrosty Park (on the Turret Burn – a tributary of the River Earn) to the attractive town of Comrie. The route will take us up to the Glen Turret dam – and then westwards along an extablished drove track towards Comrie. We then descend into Comrie via the famous Deil’s Cauldron waterfall. On arrival, we should have time for a coffee, before the bus trip back to MacRosty Park to pick up cars.

None specified.

As this is classed as a 'Medium' walk - no particular specialist equipment is required. Just a good pair of walking boots, waterproff clothing and a packed lunch (eaten en route). A pair of walking poles is advisable.

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.
