A functional campsite for last nights stopover, at least it was until someone managed to lock the gents facilities behind them! Steve had to resort to using the ladies, supervised by Lynn, fortunately we we up and about before any one else.
Todays walk took us along NCN route 775, which links Kinross to Perth. Although the route is entirely on road, the majority of it is walking and cycling friendly. We saw a lot of cyclists, but no other walkers and very little traffic, until we reached Bridge of Earn.
The route passed through a lot of small Scottish villages with some beautiful gardens and a mix of arable, livestock farming and Christmas tree plantations. We entered our 15th county, Perthshire.
Our walk was near to the M90 motorway for most of the day and passed through the village of Glenfarg, which was a popular holiday destination for people from Edinburgh when there was a railway and station in the village. The station closed in 1964 and the line closed in 1970. The M90 now runs along the former track bed close to the village.
Just before reaching Perth we had a cafe stop at Bridge of Earn, a popular stop for cyclists. We were disappointed that our Scottish server hadn’t heard of Lands End and we had to describe where it was. I think she regretted asking us about our walk.
As we arrived in Perth too early to book in to the Premier Inn, we felt obliged to visit Wetherspoons for a hot chocolate fix.
