Overview

A short winter walk following a figure-of-eight double loop centred on Birnam.  Through Birnam to the fishing hut by the River Tay, then follow riverside walk back to Birnam.  Through the Beatrix Potter Garden to follow the Inchewan Burn to Ladywell Plantation.  After a circuit through the Plantation we follow the Inchewan Burn path back to Birnam.

NOTE:  This is a modified route from that in the printed programme due to the collapse of the bridge over the River Braan and under the A9 at Inver
