Approaching the eastern part of central Scotland, where the Grampians dominate the horizon, it appears at first glance to be mountain country. In fact much of the area is low-lying, with flat woodland and agricultural land bordered by gentle, rounded hills and an attractive North Sea coastline.
Perthshire has enough lochs to vie with Cumbria's Lake District. Dunsinane Hill and the site of Macbeth's castle can be seen on the Sidlaw Hills in Strathmore, Angus and there are also coastal walks around the Fife peninsula, with its waterfront villages, sheltered harbours and sandy beaches.
This book has 28 circular, graded walks all tried and tested by seasoned walkers. The routes range from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, so there is something for everyone.
