Highland Charge

DAY TOUR

Adult
from$67

When travelling it’s sometimes hard to fit exercise into your plans. Our guide Yvonne has created a tour that will stretch not just your muscles but your mind and soul too. Join her on a gentle run through some of the many trails that Highland Perthshire has to offer. There’s rushing waterfalls and endless woodland to explore. Yvonne has been jogging these trails for years and knows all the fascinating history of the area. This tour is a unique combination of health and history, and getting muddy is all part of the adventure. This is not a strenuous run but a chance to get outdoors and enjoy our surroundings. Get steamin’ on endorphins and make some new friends at the same time. Everyone is welcome. After the run refuel with some well-earned hearty food in quaint Dunkeld, a beautiful village that sits on the banks of the mighty River Tay. There’ll be free time to explore the stunning cathedral or head out to the Birnam Oak, a relic of the Birnam wood mentioned in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Returning to Edinburgh late afternoon.

Itinerary

Departing Edinburgh at 08.45 we head North passing the iconic Forth Bridge. Driving through the kingdom of Fife hear stories of Mary Queen of Scots before stopping off to visit some hairy coos, everyone’s favourite.

After our hairy coo fix we’ll head towards Dunkeld where we will choose one of the trails for our run. Put your running shoes on and prepare to get muddy as we explore the stunning scenery of Highland Perthshire. It’s not a race, we’ll take our time and relax as we get to know each other on the run.

Examples of trails:

Fiddlers Path- 9km loop following the River Tay up from Dunkeld and then back down the other side. The Hermitage and Braan walk- 6.5km running through the forest to take in waterfalls before opening up to attractive views of the Perthshire countryside. Inver Walk and Pine Cone Point- 10km loop run to a lookout with amazing views.

After our run we will catch our breath and have some lunch in the quaint village of Dunkeld. We will be well deserving of a refuel after our active morning, and be ready to embrace an afternoon full of history and exploration.

Dunkeld has much to see and you’ll be given the opportunity to warm down while exploring this beautiful ancient village. Yvonne will be on hand to give you some of her rich knowledge of the area or you have the option to explore it independently at your own pace.

Perhaps you’d rather relax by the banks of the mighty River Tay? It’s up to you, you’ve earnt it.

We return to Edinburgh late afternoon, enriched both in body and mind. This tour ticks all the boxes.
