The Lower Birks of Aberfeldy is a countryside site with pathways passing through broad-leaved woodland and along the Moness Burn. Bridges and viewpoints cross the Moness Burn and the space is used by tourists and locals for walking, with even and accessible paths linking the town centre to residential areas. The Lower Birks was made famous by the Robert Burns song, ‘The Birks of Aberfeldy’.

The space is also home to Aberfeldy’s war memorial which was unveiled on 4th June 1922 and takes the form of a large, red sandstone arch at the entrance. Targes with crossed swords feature at each top corner of the arch which commemorates 65 men from the area who fell during World War I.
