Visit the Fortingall Yew (held to be Europe's and possibly the world's oldest living entity at 5,000 years old) on this easy walk along quiet lanes. For those who like to lunch within the sight and sound of running water, there is an optional detour to Sput Ban Waterfall on the River Lyons, involving some negotiation of a rocky riverside path. Fortingall has some attractive thatched cottages, a rarity in Scotland. Oh! and it is also the reputed birthplace of Pontius Pilate!

The walk is mainly over busy country roads, which means its not a dog friendly route I'm afraid. The path along the river to the waterfall is overgrown. We didn't have the time to figure it out so abandoned the walk halfway through. Would recommend that this walk be updated if possible!

The AA Road sign has been removed, the path which leads to the Water Fall is now rather over grown, but all in all a pleasurable walk. Thanks
