We have outlined a number of routes which you might want to enjoy during your visit to Strathearn. They are rated Easy or Short, Medium, and Hard or Long, so you can try and guage what suits you, although please check the distance and elevation in each route. Please act responsibly in the countryside and respect our neighbour's privacy.
Between 1-3 hours, gentle gradients, easy surfaces
A low level, relatively flat, traffic free loop beginning and ending at a small car parking area off Strowan Road. The route is fine for competent children, and has only one small hill to conquer. The route leads to the excellent Macrosty Park, which has a great playpark, cafe, landscaped gardens and fish ladder. The return is either retracing your route, or via the other quiet estate route of Laggan Road.
Approximately 3 - 5 hours, with mixed surfaces, steeper gradients and higher altitude. Some technical riding a posssibility
A couple of hours loop from Comrie Croft, with some testing climbs, singletrack sections and a pretty steep and technical descent off the monument hill above Comrie. Watch out for walkers on the downhill from the Wee Cauldron! A red graded off-Croft caper, well worth a loop if you have some time
A mixed surface route taking in the stunning Glen Artney, with road and off-road sections. You will require a mountain bike for this route. There are some wet sections and steep gullys to negotiate, so not suitable for kids seats and trailers.
4 hours plus, with a variety of terrain. Expect long days out, with tough climbs and descents
A High Level route leaving from Comrie Croft, requiring a good level of fitness and ability. A good mix of Landrover Tracks and some singletrack, with breathtaking views and tough climbs
