The Birks 'o'Aberfeldy and Falls of Moness
Lying south of Aberfeldy, the sheltered glen known as The Birks has long been a popular spot and the well made paths that form a circuit from Aberfeldy to the Falls of Moness make this beautiful place easily accessible.
The path climbs steeply past a number of smaller falls to the bridge at the top before returning above the opposite bank.
A short distance from the beginning of the route is a seat at the spot where Robert Burns was said to have composed his song The Birks O' Aberfeldy.
