Craig Rossie, near Auchterarder

One of the more northerly of the Ochils, Craig Rossie presents a bold profile and challenge to travellers along the nearby A9. The ascent is steep and sustained but grassy, and makes for an enjoyable circular walk with extensive views. The route is not marked and paths are faint at times.


Mostly faint grassy hill paths; track on return. There is one patch of bog to cross.

Public Transport

None to start; bus to Auchterarder 3.5km from start along minor roads.


Very limited parking east of Pairney Farm. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
