Crieff & Strathearn Drovers' Tryst

The modern day Tryst takes place in the second week of October - Michaelmas week - which was when thousands of cattle were brought to market in Crieff from all across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The festival is run by volunteers and built around a programme of guided walks in the stunning scenery and autumn colours of Strathearn and surrounding area. 

Complementing the walks are mountain bike races and a series of enjoyable evening social events, with music, drama, film and dancing! 

In 2016 the Tryst runs from Saturday 8th to Saturday 15th October.
