/ Cycling Perth to Dunkeld to Crieff
Looking to cycle from Perth up through Pitcairngreen and Bankfoot to Dunkeld then join Old Military Road and down to Gilmerton and cut back to Perth by Tibbermore road.
Basically this: http://www.cycle-route.com/routes/Perth_to_Crieff_and_Dunkeld_Circular-Cycle-Route-2473.html
I am a bit confused as to the route after Bankfoot at Dunkeld, as I would like to avoid the A9..
When the B867 joins the A9, route 77 seems to continue alongside the A9 is this correct?? It then looks like it goes under the A9 by the train station into Dunkeld and continues north.
However, I would like to join the A822 Old Military Road and down through the Sma' Glen, so how do I get onto this road without crossing the A9????
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated!
Google Earth shows the situation. Basical, at the southern point where you cross the A9, you'd be on a cycle path crossing the A9 perpendicularly, so by picking your moment you'd be safe enough. At the Northern crossing it looks a bit more dangerous in that you'd be on the A923 turning left on to the A9 for 100m or so. You wouldn't be riding on the main carriageway as there is a de-accelaration at this point so not exacltly death on a stick.
I'll correct that... there an pedestrian underpass you could use at the Northern crossing.
That's great, thank you
