A linear long-distance route with separate designated route for walking developed by Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust.

The River Tay Way will travel between Kenmore and Perth and pass through some of the finest countryside that Perthshire has to offer. 

The route is approximately 50 miles passes through the communities of Luncarty, Stanley, Murthly, Dunkeld and Birnam, Aberfeldy, and Kenmore.

The walking route follows existing designated core paths, and the cycling route follows National Cycle Route 77 (NCN 77) and NCN 7.

The intention is to create the River Tay Way through a ‘daisy chain’ of community links that enable residents to undertake low-carbon, active travel and together create a long-distance leisure route through some of Scotland’s finest highland lowland scenery.

There is also a rich abundance of natural, built, historical and sporting heritage along the route, offering a wealth of innovative, landscape-based interpretation opportunities.
