Welcome to our Expedition Network!

Tayside contact details are on the right and we would be happy to help you plan and undertake your expedition. Most areas are accessible and the Area Advisor has details of most of the estate managers and/or landowners

Update: Lambing in Tarfside 2017

During lambing (mid April to mid May) Dalbrack farm asks that DofE groups avoid the routes highlighted on the above map. Contact details for this farm are available from the Tayside Area Advisor.


Update: water sources in Glen Tilt and Gleann Mor

We have be informed that raw sewage is released into the Allt Feith Lair from Fealar lodge at NO 009 799. Therefore, anyone taking drinking water from this stream, or downstream in Glen Tilt should take appropriate precautions such as boiling or treating water. In Gleann Mor water can be collected upstream from above Fealar lodge, or from the Allt a' Ghlinne Bhig at NO 009 784 south of the lodge.


Update: Trees down in Glen Finlet

A leader has reported that a large number of trees have been blown down  in Glen Finlet, at approximately NO 231 694.  these trees have completely blocked the tracks. From the north there is no alternative track to follow on the group therefore the only real choice is to reverse the route to the edge of the woods and then skirt around the edge of the wooded area.

Update: Squinty bridge, Gaick pass

A leader has reported that on the Squinty bridge (NN 713 772) on Edendon water, just south of Sronphadruig lodge, the culverts underneath have become completely blocked. This means that all water is running across the top of the bridge. In dry conditions this was reported as 8 inches deep, but it could be a significant hazard in wetter conditions.

Campsites update


Groups planning to visit the area need to be aware of the following restrictions:

  • Loch Ordie – due north of Dunkeld – All DofE groups are requested not to camp in the immediate vicinity of the Loch. Alternative campsites have been identified north of Loch Ordie and groups are requested to use these instead of the shoreline of the loch.
  • Glen Prosen. Renovation work has been done at Kilbo Bothy (NO 249 708) and it is now frequently used. All groups are requested to not camp in this area.

Further information on both of these locations can be obtained from the Area Advisor.
