This is a walk of great variety and breathtaking scenery. It starts in the centre of Pitlochry and crosses the River Tummel by a suspension bridge downstream of the Pitlochry hydroelectric power station. It then follows a fairly long, straight climb, first on well-made roads, then on to a grassy track within earshot of a tumbling stream. A short detour provides some wonderful views over the town.

The small path then follows a wide forestry track before entering a great expanse of open moorland. Here there are some really memorable panoramas. These change as the path winds its way through the heather. Great views of distant mountains then give way to equally spectacular views of the greener hills closer by. The walk then continues downwards through more woods and on past grassy fields before returning to the early part of the walk and hence back to the start.
