David led us to Newtyle where Charlie turned off and Brian had to make some adjustments to his bike so we got a wee rest.
From Newtyle we heaed onwards to Coupar Angus where Norman turned off followed by Keith leaving 4 to head to Bankfoot and the Stewart Tower Dairy where we enjoyed some lovely soup coffee cakes scones etc.
For the return we headed down into Bankfoot and Dunkeld followed by a brisk run through Meikleour on the Old Military Road. We were about to turn right for Coupar Angus but decided to take a chance on Kitty Swanson's bridge which crosses the river Ericht, the bridge dates back to the 1800 when it replaced a ferry run by Kitty Swanson
Admiral Knight was an agnostic who insisted on being buried in his own garden, related to Queen Charlotte's lady-in waiting Miss Knight.
When we eventually made it back to Tarmac we headed up the hill and on to the Kirrie Blair road and turned to Kirrie through Airlie for another brisk run up to the Auchindorie cross roads dwn the hill towards Roundyhill for a few pints, Brian headed straight home so we had an hour in the pub before heading home.
A good run of 75 miles going quickly enough to keep warm - the route is hear if you fancy it
