This Mountain Bike Tour combines quiet minor roads with exciting wilderness tracks. A circular journey from scenic Strathardle returning to Blairgowrie with some road sections but other challenging forest tracks and mountain climbs. It begins with a short road section alongside the River Ardle before setting off into the hills and the beautiful Glen Fearnate. From Blair Atholl the route follows the River Tilt to Deeside and the village of Braemar nestling in the valley of the River Dee. A day of smooth tarmac passing the Queen’s Castle of Balmoral on the way to Ballater with the hills on either side of the valley changing colour continuously. Return southwards over the Grampian Mountains to enjoy the Angus Glens before the finish in Blairgowrie
