Atholl Estates which is the major landlord in the area have for a highland-perthshire-250.jpgnumber of years catered for cyclists and walkers with a network of marked trails and routes which are all in booklets with maps sold via the Ranger’s office in Blair Atholl village. The routes range ‘Easy Routes’ to ‘Moderate and Hard Routes’. Here we will give you a taster of some to consider;

    6. Glen Tilt to the Falls of Tarf - 25 miles - Easy to moderate route - Start at Glen Tilt car park. This is a very popular route for both cyclists and walkers. The river Tilt is set in a deep glen with good estate roads at the lower reaches, to more difficult 4X4 roads at the top of the glen. You will see the remains of crofting communities as you pass up the glen to The Falls of Tarf. This is a route I cycle regularly virtually traffic free, with good varied scenery and lots of Red Deer in the eveings outsiode the stalking season. You can download the Memory Map Route or GPS Route

    7. Glen Banvie - 9 miles - Easy Route - This route starts from the Glen Tilt car park taking you to the back of Blair Castle along the Banvie Burn, through lovely woods and farm roads. The route takes you up onto the moorlands, where the remains of an old settlement is clearly seen. It is also possible to go to the Falls of Bruar via a short detour.

    8. Old Blair and Blair Castle west drive - 3.7 miles - Easy Route - Start at Glen Tilt car park. Turn left out of the car park and cycle through Old Blair, following the blue way markers, which will take you behind Blair Castle through farm land before turning back through woods and finally along the Banvie Burn.

    9. Craigower, Bealach and Fonab Forest - Hard route - We recommend that you  use an ordinance survey map - this route takes you from Killiecrankie up over the shoulder of the hill to Moulin and cross Pitlochry passed the theatre across the A9 and over the hill to Grandtully and back.
