#1 of 11 in Trails in Perth and Kinross
Take a stroll along the meandering paths of Black Spout Wood. Admire the eponymous waterfall from the viewing platform, positioned to frame the two-stepped cascade with leafy boughs. Keep an eye out for scampering critters and flitting birds--you might even spot some soaring birds of prey--and soak up the tranquil ambience. The path frequently becomes muddy, so make sure to wear appropriate footwear. Arrange to visit Black Spout Wood and other attractions in Pitlochry using our Pitlochry holiday planning tool .
