Ride high­lights

Cycling Weekly - - Ride With - 1 Tully­bac­cart de­scent

Af­ter 10 kilo­me­tres of al­most con­tin­u­ous up­hill, this long, fast and twist­ing de­scent of­fers some wel­come respite. You are also now well into the Perthshire coun­try­side, so the scenery is pretty spe­cial too.

2 Bir­nam to Dunkeld

Only a short stretch, but it’s a flat piece of road linking two pretty vil­lages and cross­ing the River Tay — with great views to the north — via a hand­some stone bridge.

3 River Isla

The Isla is just one of sev­eral rivers crossed dur­ing the ride, but the stretch of road lead­ing up to it is grad­u­ally de­scend­ing and of­fers wide, dra­matic views of the Sid­law Hills.
