Horse Riding and Pony Trekking
In and around Rob Roy Country
The countryside in and around Perthshire and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is spectacular with lochs, mountains, rivers and glens. What better way to explore than on horseback; trekking across the heather clad moors, riding along the forest paths, just being in the heart of nature enjoying the wonderful views of Perthshire, watching the burns tumbling over the stones, looking out for buzzards and kestrels hunting, seeing dippers and herons along the rivers and maybe a fish rising.
There are opportunities for riders of all abilities and for those who have never been on a horse before – from gentle walking treks to fast hacks. Hats are usually supplied and experienced staff match riders with suitable reliable mounts. Booking is essential.
This trekking and learning centre at Kenmore is situated in the heart of Scotland with some of the most spectacular views and scenery. It caters for riders of all abilities.
