From watching for red squirrels and roe deer, to discovering the most dramatic scenery of our five reservoirs, three woodlands and countless rumbling burns and panoramic peaks, Glendevon has it all.
The Wild Outdoors
Glendevon offers a range of walking routes to suit everyone - from the easy 2km Castehill Lower Loop Walk to the more challenging 14km Reservoirs Trail. Glendevon woodlands comprises three separate native woodlands - Glen Quey, Glen Sharp, and Geordie's Wood. Perthshire is known as big tree country, so look out for oak, ash, birch, hazel, rowan, juniper and Scots pine.as well as three impressive peaks - Ben Shee, Innerdownie, and Seamab Hill - with towering views over the Ochil Hills, home to the crystal clear reservoirs and famous Highland Spring water.
Flora and Fauna
Look out for patrolling birds of prey such as the
Kestrel and Short-eared Owls that make the glen
its home. Roe deer, fox, hedgehog, red squirrel, pine
marten and various bat species also reside in the
maturing woodland. Look out for brown hare, rabbit,
vole, shrew, stoat and weasel on the open farmland.
Otter, kingfisher and dipper wallowing in the
reservoirs, rivers and burns, and black grouse can
be heard and seen, along with heather and blaeberry
(bilberry). To get more up close and personal, be sure
