Starting in the car park of the pier, just off the A821. Head north along the water board road.
The road heads north west following parallel to the loch all the way road. When you get to the end of the loch, approx 6 miles on, it doubles back on it's self and you shortly come to another pier in Stronachlachar.
Taking the road(Lochard road) leaving south of Stronachlachar taking you all the way through Loch Ard forest, Kinlochard, Milton and finally into Aberfoyle.

Good route. Finished it off by going round the Forest drive for a bit of downhill bumps.

Great wild feel, yet all on lovely tarmac, lots of native trees and bird life, some great descents. I think I will be back to do this many times in the future as its a nice distance for an easy day.

I started from Abefoyle, which gave an easy finish. It took me 5 hours of steady cycling, with breaks every hour for 5 mins. I took the sustran route out of Aberfoyle, which runs parallel to the A road. This was good, but I found it difficult to get back to the A road, and had to carry my bike for 300m over bracken.
Overall a good route without too many cars or people (Friday in October).

Started from the macdonald holiday hotel,into Aberfoyle then turn left up the dukes pass road , some parts of this road are 10% climbs , but you are rewarded with some great down hill sections until the ferry landing.

Then the private road which is closed to traffic , around the north bank of loch Katrine, again lots of up and down, then follow the road back to Aberfoyle, great route , took 2 hrs, 15 mins.

Excellent
