That sounds good. May bring the ebike though, but I’ll take it easy on you. Probably slower on it than Kenny is normally, so you should be fine.
If I get a day away from the wee man I need to make the most of it, so will do some afternoon laps as well.
Should do the full red Keith, it’s actually really nice, nothing too spicy. Couple of tricky rolls but can always walk those.

If time may be an issue then could leave Comrie until another day? Could do Kinnoull/Deuchney instead if you wanted. Shorter drive for all of us and 2-3 hours is enough to cover most of the good stuff a couple of times.

clubby, what is Kinnoull/Deuchney like for climbing to top of trails? Mind I'm an auld man, was 68 yesterday FFS, my legs don't have battery assistance.

Just a thought, there's the trails at Falkland from Pillars of Hercules. I know it's adding in another option and it's a bit further for you but the trails are good.

Not too bad at all. Park at the upper car park and it’s the same easy fire road climb to the start of the tracks each time. Couple of steeper singletrack sections to get to the downs but not very long. Shorter than anything at Comrie.
Couple of main descents with various options.

Kinnoull side can go right down to river, but even if we just ride to cliff viewpoint and do the top loop back to car. Views are amazing.
