Following a very quiet county road you quickly leave Bankfoot behind and climb gently alongside Garry Burn to Glen Garr. You may be tempted to climb the Obney Hills to visit either the obelix or prehistoric fort, which mark their summits. Continue to Dunkeld via the Rumbling Bridge and Hermitage. The Hermitage has long been a stopping point on the grand Scottish Tour. The mature forests, streams and waterfalls make for a delightful end to a pleasant day.

Dunkeld and Birnam straddle the River Tay and much of the townscape has been restored by Historic Scotland, making it one of Scotland’s prettiest towns. Dunkeld Cathedral is a particular highlight.
