A forest of hidden stories with a wonderful view


Venture into a fabled wood

Weem wood cascades down a steep, rocky hillside, a fine backdrop for Castle Menzies. The Menzies family - supporters of King Robert the Bruce - helped create and shape Perthshire’s forests. In the 1400s, David Menzies who built The Old Kirk of Weem, left the family home to live as a hermit at St David’s Well, a cave in the forest.

There are tales of enchanters who imprisoned maidens in the rock here too. Sculptures hidden along the trail recall the forest’s stories.
