Falls of Tarf, Glen Tilt, Blair Atholl - Added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Scotland

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission not required.

I thought long and hard before adding this as a location as it is well off the beaten track and it will take some effort to get to, but you will be well rewarded by the absolutely stunning scenery. It is possible to hike to the falls but it’s easier on a bike - last year I used an ordinary mountain bike (7hrs) but this year on an eBike the round trip took around 3 and a half hours (including half an hour for snack/photos/droning at the falls. The closest parking is at the Bridge of Tilt car park in Blair Atholl, which is also the nearest point for shops/food/toilets. Midge repellent is also useful!
