Walking in Breadalbane Crieff & Strathearn Drovers' Tryst Walking Festival 3851 <p>The Drovers' Tryst Festival celebrates the cattle drovers who made Crieff one of the most important places in Scotland in the 1700s, when the Crieff Tryst in Michaelmas week was the largest cattle market in the land. <br /> <br />The festival is organised by volunteers and offers an 8-day programme of over thirty Perthshire guided walks together with a lively series of social events and a mountain bike race.
