For any keen rambler or lover of wild places, our glen has some of the most inspiring walking routes and scenery a visitor could wish for.

The Wild Outdoors

 

Hiking

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

to take a trip to the Phoenix Falconry experience or

see even wilder species at the family-friendly

Blair Drummond Safari Park
