Enjoy beautiful Perthshire acros the duration of this wonderful festival.  Following the success of the 2021 Tryst, the Trustees decided to continue with a springtime Tryst.  20 walks will be on offer and we hope to increase the number of walkers to 12, though this will still be dependent on any COVID restrictions in place at the time of the Festival.  We also hope to reintroduce minibuses, allowing us to offer our popular linear walks again.

As usual there will be a wide choice of walks with levels to suit all, with some new walks added.  We look forward to welcoming previous and new walkers back to our 2022 Festival!

It's all in the beautiful historic scenery of Perthshire, celebrating the lives of the cattle drovers of yore.

There will also be a special walk delving into the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Byland, a significant but largely forgotten battle at Sutton Bank.
