Loch Earn Railway Path (LERP) Project

Our aim is to upgrade and develop the Loch Earn Railway Path to create a ‘shared use’ route between the Communities of Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Comrie. We also hope that this path will be an integral part of the longer pilgrim routes; Iona to St Andrews and of the Three Saints Way (3SW).

Phase 1 (Glentarken Bridge) opened the way to walk between Lochearnhead and St Fillans but the path now needs improving to meet the needs of a wider range of users.

Phase 2 has now been completed from St Fillans to Tynreoch and creates the much-needed safe route through to Comrie.

We would sincerely like to thank all the hard work, help, support and funding from: Drummond Estates, LLTTNPA, Sustrans, SNH, Gannochy Trust, LEADER, Paths for All, PKC, PKCT,

AB Gairns & TP&E; this has enabled a construction of such high standard. We would also like to thank Lady Willoughby de Eresby, who has very kindly offered to say a few words and to officially open the new section.
