A lovely spin out. I have spent many a day chasing Dofe groups there on bike.
The estate at North end is welcoming, the chap who owns shooting rights less so. South estate is more grumpy, and again estate shooting rights are leased to all sorts, some of whom have been right grump bags.

A word of warning - we went in and helped groups over the rivers in heavy rain - a couple of the innocuous streams become landy 110 bonnet depth...

An even finer loop can be had taking the track as far as the inlet for the hydro, crossing the inlet then climbing the most ridiculous fire road ever to the watershed to the east of Ben Chonzie. Then either taking in Ben Chonzie (Great decent) or descending into Glen Lednock. Lots of singletrack on the north side of Strathearn takes you back along to Loch Turret and eventually back into Sma' Glen. Cracking day out.

As for the Glen Almond route, I did it on a loaded cross bike with slicks, so no excuses 😉

Yeah i have checked out that route and a couple of others on the map. There is a trail high up on the northern side of the glen but the estate have stated that they would prefer riders not to go there. I say stuff them. 🙂

I wouldn't worry too much, it's relatively boring fireroad so you're missing little.

The best of the riding in the area really is on the Crieff side of the hills. Descending from Loch Turret towards Glen Lednock via the Deils Cauldron woods is very special.
