Dunkeld 22/06/14

Six set off on a bright morning for a longish gentle run to Dunkeld.  

We took the Bogside Rd to Miegle then the main Perth Rd to Coupar Angus and then through to Blairgowrie.  From Blair we continued on towards Dunkeld on the main road which was quite busy  so we turned left the bottom of Loch of Clunie and this was quieter till we got to the Loch of the Lowes where it was pretty manic at the car parking area for the osprey hide, we got through with Charlie nearly being knocked off by someone trying to pass him on a corner with a car coming in the opposite direction - we regrouped in the lay-by deciding on the co-op and a seat outside for lunch.

Lunch purchased we headed down to the river and luckily there were two empty benches for us.

After a wee rest we decided on a run up the hill past Murthly Sawmill, that gave us a nice run mainly down hill through Murthly towards Kinlaven Bridge where we did our ususla right then left and the lumpy route back into Coupar Angus.  Nobody fancied stopping sow we headed towards Newtyle and home, six out and six back into Forfar and 65miles completed.
