Wee Sma Glen Walk

WalkExplorer

A fairly lengthy walk that holds the delights of rural Perthshire,  taking you from the Sma Glen along part of the route leading to Loch Tay. On this part of the route, time should be taken to examine the dry-stane circular sheep-pens known as the Auchnafree Millennium Circle, which was built in the 1800s. The sheep-pens were renovated at the millennium. A few hundred yards away are the Clach na Tiompan Chambered Cairns dating back some 4,000 years to the time of the Bronze Age, a must for historical buffs. From there the walk diverts into the glens of rural Perthshire, following the course of Glen Lochan to the small village of Croftmill. As you approach Croftmill, a spectacular panoramic of Loch Freuchie emerges. A camera here is a must. After a short walk along a single-track metal road, the route diverts onto a long-disused military road. This road was built by General Wade at the time of the Jacobite uprising and is still very prominent in the landscape. It takes you back to the start.   

A minimum degree of fitness is required, mainly due to the length of the walk as opposed to any climbing. This route is ideal for teaching newcomers basic map and compass skills. 

<b>Please Note</b> This walk is graded 'moderate' (click footprint icon to see grades) and can be hard going underfoot, especially after wet weather. It requires some navigational skills. A 1:25 000 scale map and a compass or GPS are strongly recommended.
