Taken from the Bikepacking Scotland FB page today........not sure of distance yet but I might be up for this later in the summer..........fairly central location. Not the most inspiring scenery in the country, but not the worst either and terrain looks pish easy :D

texty bit.......

It's Thursday, time to plan for the weekend. Here's a suggestion from us we tried a few weeks back when visiting the lovely people at Comrie Croft. Leave your car at Comrie Croft, and then follow the signs to Comrie. Then head towards Cultybraggan Camp and then the fabulous road up Glen Artney. Alternatively there's an off-road track on the other side of the river. From there it's gravel heaven all the way to Callander, from where you can pick up Sustrans Route 7 to Lochearnhead and on to Comrie. There's a great hostel in Callander if you want to take it easy.

Look at the pics if you need convincing. Happy riding!


:D

See if this works......

Nah it doesn't...I'll work on cartographic skills. The route is a mix of quiet road, landrover track and cycle path, approx 40 miles - Comrie/Callander/Lochearnhead/St.Fillans/Comrie.

Maybe in August?

Aha........

Just putting this here for a while - essentially adds a northern section to the route I was originally thinking of and at 78 miles is probably too much for me at the moment, even over 2 days. Worth bearing in mind as a central summer adventure though.
