The River Tay is the biggest feature of the landscape around here. Apparently it is the longest river in Scotland – 120 miles. When I was learning how to find my way around here, I very quickly discovered that it really matters which side of the river you are on. It’s a big river and there aren’t many bridges.
So how about a Saturday afternoon walk along the river? Fine – except that it is quite hard to get to it. We chose a spot with a Roman fort and walked and walked and walked across the flood plain. And we got there eventually and found the huge river running through an almost empty landscape.
Stick to the walking guide next time, I think.
