|Follows quiet country roads up the River Almond, before coming back down.
WARNING: After coming off the B road at Chapelhill, don't go as fast as you might normally, as the corner is sharper than it looks, and I fell off my first time taking the route, and it was embarrassing
|Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?|
|There's an inn at Chapelhill, which I'm informed is only open at weekends. I am also informed there is another inn further up the road at Harrietfield if preferred.

|Really enjoyed this cycle. We stayed on NCN77 leaving the North Inch in Perth, followed the signs heading for Pitlochry all the way through Almondbank, Pitcairngreen to the cross roads with the B road.|
Theres a good climb into Pitcairngreen and leaving Pitcairngreen, but there is certainly enough downhills to make them worth while.
Totally agree with Murray about the sharp bend, infact theres a few corners on route that if taken too fast, you may end up off the road on the other side.
Stunning views, and not too long, great cycle.
