Kinnoull Hill woodland walks
Kinnoull Hill woodland walks Perth Reviews
Great hillwalks with amazing views Apr 27, 2013
I started this fantastic walk from the train station in Perth.
You just go further to the river Tay from the station and cross the railway bridge leading to the other side of the city (they call Perth a city, maybe because of a cathedral...). You can find further details on www.walkinghighlands.co.uk/perthshire/kinnoull-tower.shtml.
The path is going through woods to the direction to Kinnoull Hill. On the right hand side you can discover superb views to the Tay river valley. I was lucky, as the day was sunny and with great visibility to the mountains - it was possible to see the summits of the Highlands with snow still on them on one side and towards Lomond Hills and Fife on the other one.
From the Kinnoull Hill is possible to see a tower on another hill - this one is inspired by castles along the river Rhine in Germany - even the photos from the place look a bit like from the river Rhine.
I continued to the tower and spent a while watching the amazing views from the cliffs. You can follow the signs and return to Perth or, which I did, as there was really nice weather on the day, continued from a car park Jubilee near the Aitken Aroboretum to a circle around Deuchny Hill and returned to the Jubilee car park again, went on to Corsiehill car park and back to Perth. The paths lead in the woodland, so you don't need to follow the roads for cars.
It was quite dry, but also some mud around, so if you decide for the walk, definitely with good walking shoes. I'd recommend you to check the weather forecast and do this walk, if a good visibility expected. The walk is quite easy to do - no extremely steep walkways at all.
