Three Saints Way stall at Comrie Fortnight Riverside Fair

On Saturday 26th July, Comrie Fortnight holds its Riverside Fair.  This year, there will be a stall introducing the new long-distance walking route promoted by Roseanna: the Three Saints Way.  Come along on Saturday from 1.30pm to find out more!

 

Two walks during Comrie Fortnight, led by the Strathearn Ramblers, will use part of the Three Saints Way route.   On Sunday 3rd August, a circular route from St. Fillans leaves from Comrie Primary School Car Park at 9am. This elevated walk takes in Glen Tarken and Glen Beich.

Another walk on 5th August uses the Three Saints Way route between Comrie and Crieff.  Full details of the walk on 3rd August are below:

HILL WALK

ST. FILLANS CIRCULAR VIA GLEN TARKEN AND GLEN BEICH.

SUNDAY 3rd AUGUST.

Depart 9.00am Comrie Primary School Car Park.

 

The Chairman of the Strathearn Ramblers, Ken Heiser, invites you to accompany him on an interesting elevated circular walk from St.Fillans (Four Seasons Hotel) via Glen Tarken and Glen Beich returning along the disused railway line back to St. Fillans. The walk is approximately 13 miles in length and the CoCo Bus is taking us to the start at the Four Seasons Hotel, St.Fillans.

 

The route takes us on a gradual ascent up to Glen Tarken with special features such as the ruined townships of Morell and Jerusalem. The way continues on a good track up Glen Tarken to Glen Beich. There is some rough walking down Glen Beich before we pick up a path towards Loch Earn.

 

We will return to St.Fillans via the disused railway that runs above the loch. At Glentarken Burn we will cross the new "Bailey" bridge opened on the 9th of May this year. The bridge spans 100 feet with a 130ft drop, truly a magnificent challenge which we hope will have enormous benefits. It will offer the opportunity to connect with the National Cycle Network and create a viable east/west long distance path coast to coast from Iona to St.Andrews (Three Saints Way).

 

Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and drinks (non alcoholic). The walk is strictly limited to 30 participants and the CoCo Bus only takes 16 passengers, so first come first served. Cars will be required if this number is exceeded, and cars will be left in St.Fillans. Names must be given to the Booking Office by 4pm Saturday 2nd August. Good stout footwear, fleece and waterproofs should be worn. For further information please contact Ken Heiser on 01764 670545.

 

                  SORRY, BUT NO DOGS PLEASE.

Children over 8 and under 16 years welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or Guardian who will be responsible for the child throughout the duration of the walk. Anyone taking part on this walk do so at their own risk and the "Strathearn Ramblers" and "Comrie Fortnight Association" will not be liable for any injury or accident.
