- This route is suitable for all but does involve a short down hill tarmac section on the hotel drive, and sections with a drop near the river.
Begin at the Atholl Street (North) car park in Dunkeld, follow the path behind the toilet block and bear left towards the Cathedral. Follow this path alongside the Cathedral, then pick up the wooden/green sign to follow the Bishop’s path.
Once you reach the end of this path turn left and follow the tarmac hotel drive down hill, watch out for traffic and the speed bumps, take it easy. Once the descent starts to level off you will see a green boat planter on your left, turn off here and follow the path to the right. Unless of course you intend to go to the hotel, in that case stay on the hotel tarmac drive.
Continue on this lower path past the hotel and fishing hut until you come to a small steep path off to the left (you may wish to leave you bike at the top and walk down), this will take you to the Folly, this belongs to the hotel and on occasion people choose to marry here.
From here you can continue further along the path towards the beach. To get down to the beach take the small sign ‘Rock Pool’. This is a sandy and stony beach with a bench, a great lunch spot.
The route retraces your steps as far back as that green fishing boat planter. Instead of heading uphill on the tarmac stay on the forest path and around the gate in front of you. Follow this path straight back to the Cathedral and back to where you started in the car park.
Discover and support local businesses along the route.
