Clearly we're not the first generation to know how stunning the routes covered by the Rings of Breadalbane are - nearly 230 years ago, Robert Burns was travelling them as part of his famous Highland Tour in 1787, as his diaries make clear:
"leave Crieff - Glen Aumond - Aumond river - Ossian's grave - Loch Fruoch - Glenquaich - landlord & landlady remarkable characters Taymouth" and then:
"Glen lyon house - lyon river - Druids temple - 3 circles of stones, the outer most sunk - the 2d has 3 stones remaining -the innermost has 8 - two large detached ones like a gate, to the southeast - say prayers in it - Pass - Taybridge - Aberfeldy - described in rhyme"
Burns ventured to Glen Lyon and Croft Moraig before visiting Aberfeldy, where he composed The Birks o' Aberfeldy on the spot.
"Bonie lassie, will ye go, To the birks of Aberfeldy?"
Of course, if he'd known about the Rings of Breadalbane, he'd no doubt have composed a poem about them as well!
