Strathrory to Scotsburn Drove Road

Follow the route of this drove road for a challenging but rewarding wander by the Strathrory river through oak and pinewoods and across open moorland. You’ll need to organise transport from the end – or be prepared to walk back to the start.

​Used by drovers herding their cattle to market from the 17th century, the strath has been settled for at least 6,000 years. Look out for signs of Bronze Age settlements, an unfinished Iron Age hill fort and the remains of more recently-abandoned croft buildings.
