Birks of Aberfeldy

A woodland to the south of Aberfeldy in Perth and Kinross, the Birks of Aberfeldy straddle the steep-sided gorge of the Moness Burn which flows northwards to meet the River Tay. A nature trail follows the scenic route through oak, beech and birch (birk) trees to the spectacular Falls of Moness. The name of the wood derives from a reference in a poem composed by Robert Burns (1759-96):

"The hoary cliffs are crowned wi' flowers,
White o'er the linns the burnie pours,
And rising, weets wi' misty showers
The birks of Aberfeldy."
