Sma’ Glen Excursion N.B. PLEASE – WALK START TIME NOW 08:30
This scenic walk provides an interesting excursion around the eastern side of the Sma’ Glen. On route there will be an opportunity to walk part of General Wade’s military road, built in 1730 between Crieff and Dalnacardoch as a means to move troops throughout the highlands. That in itself was built on the cattle droving route in use for 100 years earlier. Our walk takes us up the Lurg Burn and on to the eastern side of the Sma’ Glen. Staying on the ridge line we will have good views of the Sma’ Glen (only 4 km in length) and upper Glen Almond. Our journey continues to the south east untillwe reach the summit at Dum Mor (466m) and the site of a prehistoric domestic and defensive fort. Before we retrace our steps we will also be able to see the site of Fendoch Roman fort in Glen Almond to the south.
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.
