Glen Tilt

Glen Tilt extends north eastwards for about twelve miles from Blair Atholl. There the river Tilt joins the Garry. A road penetrates seven miles up the glen but the track through to Mar on Deeside is a right of way. King Robert the Bruce is said to have come this way from Deeside whilst heading westward with his force to the battle of Dalrigh which was fought at Tyndrum near the Perth and Argyll county boundary in 1306. Atholl: Glen Tilt, Beinn Dearg and Carn Nan Cabhar (Explorer Maps).
