Cateran Trail


A 103km (97 km when cycling) waymarked route through Perthshire and the Angus glens in the heart of Scotland.

The Trail is a circular route divided into five stages and can be comfortably walked in five days. The Trail has no official beginning or end and can be joined at any stage. It follows old drove roads and ancient tracks across a varied terrain of farmland, forests and moors.Some of these routes follow the same ones used by the Caterans – fearsome cattle thieves who raided Strathardle, Glenshee and Glen Isla from the Middle Ages to the 17th century and for whom the Trail is named.

Multi-user gates are regularly being installed along the route to allow better access for all visitors to the Trail as well as for the landowners.
