Fossoway Access Amenity Group

Fossoway Access Amenity Group is a charity that was set up some years ago to improve and promote community access to the local countryside.

W.A.L.C - Walk Around the Lovely Crook

WALC was the first project undertaken by the charity. A seven mile circular walk linking Crook of Devon, Rumbling Bridge and Drum was developed with a new bridge installed over the river Devon upstream of Crook of Devon. The group were also involved in driving forward the development of the Core Paths Network around Fossoway. The core path network is signposted and can be seen on a map hosted by Perth and Kinross District Council (see link below)

Construction work was completed in 2011 on a new footbridge over the River Devon and a new path to the Back Crook. This completes the 6.5 mile circular walk round Crook of Devon, Drum and Rumbling Bridge. WALC spent seven years negotiating with landowners and, with the generous help of the Community, fundraising to make the Fossoway School Millennium Walk a reality.

Penneys Wood

The second project, Penney’s Wood, is a 5.55 acre stretch of land in between Drum and the back Crook.. In 2009 the land was gifted to the local community by local resident Duncan Penney. The land was planted with native trees in 2014 and is under development as a Community Woodland for local residents and the primary school.
