Beautiful Strathearn

Stunning day in Strathearn. That’s the bit that includes Crieff and Comrie and some simply stunning walking, running and biking. We started at Comriecroft and headed east to Crieff on the old drovers road past the monument and over Laggan Hill. This is a stunning trial and part of the Crieff 10K race route, run br Strathearn Harriers. part Next we climbed up to the Glen Turret dam past the Famous Grouse distillery. This is a long climb of over 300 metres but on a tarmac (albeit potholed) road. After photos in stunning conditions we headed west to Breafordie Lodge then down off the hill. This is a 15.5 mile ride with around 630 metres of climbing (around two hours of riding), but great even in challenging conditions. Finished off with coffee and a roll at Bonnie’s Mountain cafe. Great route, stunning weather and even better company.
