There is an attractive walk along the side of the river Ericht on the Blairgowrie side which takes you to Cargill's Leap and other viewpoints of the river Continuing a short way, there is a footbridge over the river. Climbing up the steps on the other side, you can walk back down Balmoral Road until there is a path back down to the river and the road along the riverside. That takes you back to The Coach House.
Another option, (picture on right), where you can let dogs off the lead if you wish, is to take the car about ten minutes south of Blairgowrie towards Meikleour. Before Meikleour you come to a long straight section of road through some woods and about 200 yards ahead there is space for four cars on the right. The woods here are a great dog walking area and easy to navigate since the paths are like a square-ish grid system, so it's difficult to get lost.
