The Highland Perthshire Marathon and Half Marathon run or cycle event has built up a reputation for being a superbly organised, great value and Friendly Event. 2017 will be the 5 th running of this great event with many people returning Year after year. The course is a thirteen mile loop which takes you through some stunning scenery. Starting at the iconic Wades Bridge in Aberfeldy the route heads west through the village of Weem past the historic Castle Menzies and out towards Drummond Hill with great views towards Schiehallion and Glen Lyon. The miles fly by on a mainly flat route for 7 miles before reaching the village of Kenmore with fantastic views westwards up Loch Tay as you go over the River Tay at Kenmore bridge. Here the route leaves the public road and heads through the grounds of Taymouth Castle, passing right in front of one of the most impressive castles in Scotland. Now comes the only real challenge on the route, a short climb up out of the castle grounds and back onto the public road to Aberfeldy. The final 5 miles follow the river Tay and although it is undulating, the general gradient is down hill, allowing you to cruise along enjoying views across the river to the historic Appin of Dull. Before you know it Castle Menzies comes into view across the river and you are almost back in Aberfeldy. If you are doing the marathon distance you head around by the famous Black Watch monument before you have the pleasure of going around the route again finishing at the fantastic facilities of The Breadalbane Community Campus.
