Owned by the community, the Birks is a must-visit venue to see a film with an amazing scenic drive there & back. You could combine a visit here with Habitat Cafe - see Food & Drink Venues.”

“This beautiful short walk is extremely popular. Popularised in a song by Robert Burns, the fine walk up the steep gorge of the Moness burn reveals several waterfalls. Excellent way-marked path. The walk passes above steep drops but there are handrails for much of the route. Distance 2.2. miles. ”

“55 mins drive from The Bothy. A small market town that’s well worth a visit for the drive alone. Travelling via Crieff and then through the Sma Glen you’ll see rivers, mountains & glens and a great panoramic view of Perthshire hills as you descend into Aberfeldy. The Birks of Aberfeldy is a great circular walk, a gradual climb with plenty of benches to rest. My family are from Aberfeldy, Acharn & Glen Lyon so it’s no surprise that there are several places to visit listed below.”
