    Another long day on the cards today, with no less than 61 miles (98km) to tackle heading up through the central Grampian Hills. Start by following National Cycle Route 7 along the Western shore of Loch Lubnaig, a very gentle and easy off road cycle path. Head on North through Lochearnhead, up Ogle Burn and descending to Killin by the Falls of Dochart.

    Start climbing gradually as you head West from Loch Tay towards Loch Lyon, where the steep Kenknock road climb will test your legs! Once you’ve descended to the River Lyon, you join the famous Highland Trail 550 route, highly regarded as one of the hardest bikepacking routes in the UK. After a stint on the road following the river, start the next climb on rocky doubletrack from Glenlyon, between Beinn Dearg and Meall a’ Mhuic. Descend through the Black Wood of Rannoch, around Leagag and down to the Bridge of Gaur for the night. There’s a guesthouse and hotel here, or make the most of Scotland’s Right to Roam and sleep outside!
