The River Lednock cascades out from a rocky gorge in the atmospheric tree-clad amphitheatre known as the Deil's Cauldron. This excellent circular walk from the attractive village of Comrie visits the Cauldron as well as having an optional ascent to the Melville Monument, an obelisk on Dun More hill that is a fine viewpoint.


Most of the route is on waymarked woodland paths. The very steep climb to the Melville Monument can be omitted.

Public Transport

Comrie is served by both local and long-distance buses.
