Dundee Thistle club run
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.
