Aberfeldy is a long established town on the River Tay, eight miles west of the main route from Perth to Inverness. A branch from the main line featured in early proposals for railways in the area and it was opened in 1865, only two years after the through route. This branch line went on to serve the town for nigh on a century, finally closing with many other rural lines in the 1960s. Sections include:

False Hopes
