Located just an hour and half north of Edinburgh and Glasgow, the route takes you through some of the most remote and hidden areas of Scotland. With 7 waterstops and 3 main checkpoints littered across the route, you are never further than a few miles from your next slice of chocolate cake.
The trail will be fully marked out and signposted along the way. We’ll also send you a map pack before the event which breaks the route down into sections, giving a description, key co-ordinates and also shows the route on an OS map.
The Yomp takes place right in the heart of the Perthshire hills. This is only around a 90 minute drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow, but given the beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful setting, you will feel that you have travelled much further!
The Yomp route stretches from the high mountains of the Cairngorms National Park to the rolling farmland and berry fields of historic Strathmore, and from the salmon rich waters of the River Tay to the footpaths and riding tracks of the Angus Glens.
We’re close to the main North-South artery road routes of the A9 to Inverness and the A90 to Aberdeen, and the spectacular A93, Deeside National Tourist Route, runs through our area to the dramatic mountain scenery of Glenshee and onto Royal Deeside.
There are busy mainline stations at nearby Perth, Pitlochry and Dundee and fast, regular bus services throughout the area radiate out of Perth and Dundee.
You’re within easy reach of just about anything you’d want to do in Scotland after your challenge. For more details of what’s on offer in the local area, VisitEastPerthshire.co.uk
Places to stay
As part of your registration fee you are able to camp at the Event Hub on the Friday night, at which we provide hot showers and plenty of toilet facilities. The camping area is less than 100 metres from the start / finish line and so is perfectly placed for a little lie down after you complete the challenge.
