Birnam to the Hermitage, Highland Perthshire at EveryTrail

Just about as flat an off-road route as you could wish for - but with lots to see!

This is a really lovely, easy ride or walk that is almost completely flat, avoids roads, and takes you past some of the loveliest scenes in Highland Perthshire.

The Birnam Oak, the historic Telford's Bridge, the medieval Cathedral and old town of Dunkeld (looking across the river), the pretty hamlet of Inver and the stunning Hermitage (including possibly Britain's tallest tree) are all part of this route.

Great relaxed family cycling for a Sunday afternoon - or any other afternoon for that matter!

Tips:
There is a nice snack bar (Big Tree Cafe) in the Hermitage Car Park with good home baking - try the oatie biscuit... and plenty of refuelling opportunities in Birnam.
