St Leonard’s in the Fields Walking Group

Walks June to December 2022

Due to reduced bus services all these walks are circular and assume car use to get to the start. All but Tentsmuir and Caisteal Dubh are accessible by using the bus however and the start times and duration are intended enable bus use. Tentsmuir involves a fair walk from the bus stop but I am sure we can car  share. Caisteal Dubh involves a walk of 1.5 miles from the nearest bus stop at Grandtully but again I am sure that a lift from there, or all the way can be arranged. If using the bus to Pitlochry it will be necessary to book in advance with Citylink Scotland (£1.00 booking fee). The times are based on a gentle pace with a twenty minute stop for a break. Let me know if you need bus details or driving directions.
