Walking with the archaeologist through the Sma’ Glen
Join Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust’s Research & Engagement Officer for a trip of discovery through one of Perthshire’s most dramatic small glens. Climb aboard to explore a small glen that’s big on history! Unlock the stories of the past through a selection of outstanding archaeological sites – from Perthshire’s early settlers to the Romans, General Wade’s road builders to 18th century farmers.
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 terrain to reach and explore the sites. There are no formal toilet facilities available along the route. Please Note: For the return to Crieff we will endeavor to arrive back for 16:00 but this is dependent on the group’s walking pace, the weather, traffic and stop durations, so return times are not guaranteed and we advise that you plan accordingly.
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.
