We are having a gentler start to the Festival this year.  We were planning an unusual trek but negotiations with the land owner have fallen through.  So in its place is an interesting historical trek in upper Strathardle.  In addition to this are a range of walks with a mix of Munros as well as sections of the Cateran Trail and other interesting locations.  As usual all are linear, so make interesting and challenging trips that are not easy to do without multiple car journeys.   All walks are led and supported by qualified staff and minibus transport is provided.  Details of each walk, booking information and more are available on the Schedule Page.

The festival is organised on a voluntary basis by 

Blairgowrie and District Next Steps, supported by

NSC Outdoor Adventures, and Strathmore and the Glens.


Accommodation in the area can be arranged through the Tourist Information Centre How to get here.


If you can't make this year's event or would like to go a little bit further, then similar walks, training including the new Mountain Training Hill and Mountain Skills scheme, National Navigation Awards, and other opportunities are available throughout the year by visiting NSC Outdoor Adventures.  If you live in the area then you can take part in our regular weekly walking group Blairgowrie and District Next Steps, who oversee, manage  plan and run the festival.
