The Killiecrankie Link Path allows pedestrians to safely walk between the National Trust for Scotland Visitor Centre and the village of Killiecrankie. Before the path was built the only access to the village was to walk on the busy road which has a blind corner with no verge to get off the road when vehicles were passing. This is a busy stretch of road used by large quarry lorries, buses and other vehicles. This area of Highland Perthshire is a popular walking route especially in the autumn when the pass of Killiecrankie is stunning and is often mentioned in the national press as a place of outstanding beauty. The local community wanted to ensure that visitors and locals could access the path network without risk.
