Follow the old drove roads and ancient tracks used by the Caterans – the fearsome cattle thieves who raided Strathardle, Glenshee and Glen Isla from the Middle Ages to the 17th century and for whom the Trail is named.
It's a circular route, starting and finishing next to Gulabin Lodge and approximately 90% off road - made up of forest tracks, rough tracks, bog, mud, heather and beautiful scenery in a spectacular rural setting. There's roughly 10% tarmac which is mainly backroads where you might be (un)lucky to see a vehicle or two. The last few miles are a treat, a 1000 foot climb over the An Lairig pass with a steep tough run down to The Spittal of Glenshee, across a wee bridge then into the field to the finish!
