Crieff and Strathearn's Drovers' Tryst

Official Drovers' Tryst Website

This is a walking festival in the heart of Scotland, resplendent in her autumn colours and historically it celebrates the cattle drovers who made Crieff the cross-roads of Scotland at the turn of the 18th Century. This is more than just a walking festival as it caters for those who enjoy a gentle ramble, for the serious walker, or for those who could be described as "Munro baggers" Indeed this walking festival features many activities, a treasure hunt, mountain biking and abseiling and has excellent entertainment with live street theatre in Crieff, with live music a ceilidh, pipe bands and farmers market. 

This is an excellent way and location to enjoy a week in the beauty of autumn in Scotland:- perhaps "New Scotland in the Fall" summarizes the setting.

Each day the Tryst offers a choice of 3 - 4 walks as well as an alternative activity such as orienteering, horseback riding, abseiling to name a few. The walks are graded for each ability: easy, moderate, hard and extra hard. The format used is to make a programme for each day which lists the walks and alternative activity and you can then select for the level of activity appropriate for your party

New from 2007 is the 'Hairy Coo' bike challenge which will offer mountain bike enthusiasts and spectators a fun, race-based event celebrating the unique heritage of drovers and drove roads. The event will be the first carbon-neutral event of its kind that we know of world-wide. The Tryst is evolving from being a walking festival to an outdoors one, and has gained a reputation as one of Scotland's more unique events
Other local points of interest are the Famous Grouse whisky distillery on the outskirts of Crieff with a most enjoyable and interactive tour in the oldest working distillery in Scotland. A farmers market on the Saturday is an event which is good fun, and those who like to participate can try spinning, glassblowing and abseiling. Try the link for more details. The oldest living thing in Europe is the Yew Tree at Fortingall , an hour's drive away , just north of Loch Tay.

Some Canadian visitors, Kirstie and Drew from Wisconsin reported on their experience of the 2004 Tryst in the Strathearn Herald, the local newspaper as follows:

'We found this Scottish walking event on the internet.We were originally going to walk the West Highland Way, but were put off when friends who had already done the trek and said that they felt that they didn't get to meet enough people on the walk because they were too busy hiking. What we wanted to do was to make our trip a hiking experience and meet the people of Scotland as well, so we did a Google search on the internet and found the Crieff Tryst in Perthshire. It seemed to us to be the perfect combination of walks and events - so we completely redesigned our holiday trip - and the experience has been well beyond expectations.'
