The area in and around Knock Castle provides some of the most varied walking and hill walking opportunities you could wish to find. The Knock of Crieff, on which the castle itself is built, is a great place for a gentle walk, with spectacular views from the summit across the Strathearn valley to the gentle Ochil hills and the rugged peaks of the Grampians in the Grampians national park.
There are several Munro mountains close by. Ben Chonzie, the wild, heather-clad hill behind Glenturret, where wild mountain hares hide among the boulders on its sheltered slopes, is our nearest Munro, whilst over on the shores of Loch Earn, Ben Vorlich and neighbouring Stuc a Chroin (whose name means 'peak of danger') provide a more challenging rock climb not for the faint-hearted. On a clear day, the intrepid climber is rewarded with stunning views south that reach as far as Stirling Castle and even Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh.
