Perthshire as a destination doesn't have massive mountains, more rolling hills, but it's easy to get there and there's a huge variety in the types of trails on offer. My three favourite riding locations in Perthshire showcase the region's diversity.

Dunkeld is a special place for me, as it's where my love for mountain biking started. I've got so many memories of riding here, and it's where I did my first SDA race on a hardtail, and looking back that was pretty wild!
Over the last few years with the increase in popularity of riding natural, hand-cut…
