Reviews of The Cateran Trail
Reaction to the free upgrade card
We followed your new route via Auchentaple Loch and Loch Shandra to the pub at Kirkton of Glenisla. Although the old route via Blacklunans and Drumore is most attractive, the new off-road trail is even better. The views of the valleys, rolling hills and distant snow-capped mountains were superb. It really is a great service that you provide.

Comment on the new offroad section
An excellent guidebook which made the whole walk very straightforward. I did the new Dalnaglar to Kirkton of Glenisla route and it was lovely, with the lochs and deer in the heather, plus lots of interesting birds. Thank you once again.

"An invaluable guidebook" - the Perthshire Advertiser
My immediate reaction, on receiving and looking at the guidebook, was to want to put on my boots and step out on the Trail. The informative background, clear instructions and attractive photographs make it appear a very appealing route ... Separate boxes highlight many points of interest that could easily be missed, such as Diarmid's Tomb near the Spittal of Glenshee. I particularly like the way the drop-down map can be folded away at the page you are at, so you can easily find your place again.

It is a beautifully produced and informative little book and I look forward to walking the route.
