Birks of Aberfeldy Nature Reserve

Birks of Aberfeldy Nature Reserve

The Birks of Aberfeldy were named after the poem of the same name by Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, who penned The Birks o’Aberfeldie in 1787, after finding inspiration whilst resting in a naturally formed seat in the rock at the side of the gorge. This is a truly scenic circular walk with plenty to admire along the way. Consisting of mature mixed woodland, you get to view the exquisite overlook of the Falls of Moness as well as being lined with mighty beautiful slopes of the Moness Gorge. Much of the gorge is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its botanical features and it is likely that there has been continual woodland cover at the site for up to 8,000 years. Shaped during the ice age, the River Tay runs through its centre.

Along the lower Birks a clear path of approximately one and half miles allows you to fully appreciate the vast array of trees present including birch, oak, ash and elm as planted by Bobby Masterton, Cluny House Gardens, in the early 1960s,. Along the Upper Birks a great treat is spectacular views of the powerful White Falls, with the addition of viewing across to Strathtay in winter. There is definitely something to see in all seasons.

Whether or not you go on the full walk, a picnic area in the car park means you can still enjoy what the Birks of Aberfeldy Nature Reserve has to offer.
