'Fully waymarked walk of 64 miles (103 km) that lies at the heart of Scotland, approximately 1 ½ hours north of Edinburgh. The Trail takes its name from the feared cattle thieves who raided the rich lands of Strathardle, Glenshee and Glen Isla.'
'Was built towards the end of the 16th century and replaced an earlier route called Comyn's Road, constructed by David Comyn, Lord of Badenoch. Although there are few precise facts about when the latter was laid, the route was certainly in use during the 16th century. The story goes that Comyn created his link between Blair Atholl and Kingussie to transport a particularly fine ale from an inn near the Perthshire village to his Badenoch home ...'

Indeed according to Adair, it was the only route running north out of Perth on the east side of the Tay and as such would have seen a great deal of traffic.'
'Designed to provide pleasurable walks through wonderful scenery with the minimum of road walking. Each day’s walk starts and finishes in a town or village where refreshments and accommodation can be found. The walks may be done individually by using local bus services.'

The idea of a haik originated with Robert Alan Jamieson, who was the Soutar Writer in Residence from 1993-96.
