With the last traces of autumn still visible, walkers might consider donning their outdoor clothing
and making the most of the season this weekend.
Veronica Heath from the Guardian explains she has noticed many of the cattle and sheep are now indoors, meaning the field tend to be bare.
This could be ideal for those who like ambling through the countryside in their outdoor clothing
, knowing there's no need to avoid certain areas where animals might be grazing.
And it is still possible to enjoy some of the season's fruit, with apples and pears still plentiful in certain parts.
These are best eaten soon after picking and walkers could find the produce is the perfect snack to take on a country stroll over the coming weeks.
Alternativly, ramblers could follow the advice of the Scotsman and stick to its Walk of the Week route, which takes people around urban Perth.
