Rannoch Station bike ride

2nd May 2010

After Stuc a' Chroin, I headed to Pitlochry and stayed at the Youth Hostel. Ellie had cycled about 64 miles to Pitlochry from Callendar to avoid seeing anyone at Strathyre.

On the Sunday morning we cycled up to that weird Falls of Bruar place for breakfast, before heading inland away from the A9 after Calvine up Glen Errochty. This was fairly flat before a final steep climb and descent over to Kinloch Rannoch. From here we took the south Loch Rannoch road and kept heading westwards until the very end of the road at Rannoch Station. The station tea room was surprisingly busy with Sunday drivers.

After fruit cake and chocolate raisins we headed back out into the cold and battled along the north Loch Rannoch road before switching onto south Loch Tummel for the final section back to Pitlochry.

81 miles or 130km in total.
