Waterfall heaven

Great walk, pleasant through the trees, up a gorge. If the sun shines you could be in paradise with so many waterfalls. Easy to see how it inspired Robert Burns.

The Birks of Aberfeldy are an amazing place , the views change as you climb up, down and around the the plunging water. Trees smothered in moss , fallen trunks dangling over sheer rock faces , waterfalls around every bend plus Robert Burns sitting comfortably enjoying the view and scribbling some lines. The path is in places wet under foot... More

Highly recommend it even on a very bad wet day, the waterfalls are stunning. You can do the whole route or just part of it but you will be surprised every step of the way

We started the walk around 4 pm on a lovely day in March. The bare trees , waterfalls and moss gave the walk an enchanted feel. The path is well laid and well kept. This is a walk which can be done again and again and would always have breathtaking nature and views.

Fairly short walk and very steep steps but the Birks are beautiful and well worth a trip. You can extend the walk down towards the River Tay before walking parallel to it back into Aberfeldy

Just outside Aberfeldy tow, this little gem is a must do. 2mi of relatively easy uphill and downhill walk along a roaring stream. You are treated to views from top of the waterfall if you do the uphill climb. Go from the left trail if you prefer steps while walking up. Every corner is a treasure. Also great photo ops.

Nice walk but is quite steep on way up. Lots of waterfalls to see. Not too long took us about an hour. If you want a leisurely walk would take longer. Nice wide paths but some slippery bits on way down where rocks are but also amazing waterfall views round these parts, but to be expected after rain. Would recommend... More

Peaceful walk with stunning scenery and a great selection of plants and trees. Lovely waterfalls. Some aspects of the walk are a bit steep so not recommended for wheelchair users. A lovely walk regardless of weather.

We walked up the Birks and it was a good hike . Unsuitable for disabled due to paths and it can be slippy. Beautiful waterfall all the way to the top then over the bridge and down the other side . Lovely scenery well kept walk and the info about trees and on plants is on little plaques underneath them.... More
