SKU: 9781898481683 Categories: ,


The Cateran Trail is one of Scotland’s Great Trails – a circular walk of 64 miles (104 km) starting in Blairgowrie, near Perth, following in the footsteps of cattle-rustlers (caterans). This waymarked Trail follows ancient paths through glens, mountains and farmland of Highland Perthshire, with fine scenery, heritage and wildlife. The nearest village is never more than 7 miles (11 km) away, and gradients are easy to moderate. The Trail can be completed comfortably within 4-5 days, and several route variants are described, including the option for a weekend Minitrail.

Our expanded and updated second edition with 35 fine photographs from professional Mike Bell was launched in Blairgowrie in 2015. With detailed mapping (Footprint, 1:50,000) and updated route descriptions, the new edition marks a giant stride forward.
