From Edinburgh & Glasgow:
This is our favourite route to head up from either of the 2 cities. The most scenic & enjoyable for us.
From Glasgow take the M80 then A80 to join the M9 towards Stirling.
From Edinburgh take the A8 to the Newbridge junction then the M9 to Falkirk & Stirling.
From both start points you now continue up the M9 from Stirling & then A9 to Perth. At Broxden roundabout take the 2nd exit & follow the A93 through Perth, Old Scone, Guildtown & on to Blairgowrie.(Blairgowrie is a nice place to stop for a break some nice tearooms & good scones!)
