Within Perth and Kinross there are lots of signposted paths, many of which connect communities and are signed from villages or towns.
Charity booklet - Walking the PKC Core Paths
During the Covid-19 pandemic a number of walking routes on PKC core paths were collected by local author, Tom Lennox. These have been gathered together in a which has been made available for downloading. The booklet is dedicated to "all those who lost their lives to Covid-19 and to all those who worked so hard to keep us all safe and well." Although not obligatory, the author asks that a donation be made for downloaded copies, to the Perth & Kinross Countryside Trust to help develop, improve and conserve core paths throughout the area.
Walkers using this guide are responsible for their own safety.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service warn that due to the dry conditions there is a very high risk of wild fires. As COVID -19 restrictions ease please take extra care, stay safe and respect the environment and rescue services. Please do not use barbeques or light fires in the countryside and remove and dispose of all cigarette ends carefully.
If travelling to another area plan ahead and continue to avoid busy places as social distancing will continue to be vital. Please take all you need for any trips out and make sure you leave the area as you found it.
Paths Groups work to keep open and improve paths in many areas. In 2018, we published the Community Path Group Development Guide which aims to support appropriate and effective community led action for paths and contains guidance, information contact details and links to further information.
