A level path goes around the edge of Clatto reservoir and smaller paths extend into Baldragon Woods and Clatto Moor (which has been planted with trees). Admiral Duncan wood has had trees planted to connect Clatto plantations to Templeton Woods to give wildlife such as red squirrels more habitat.

The water is home to many ducks and diving birds, with many fish living in the very deep water. Facilities at Clatto include a watersports centre, children's play areas, picnic and barbecue site.  The park offers recreational activities, such as watersports, that can be organised through Ancrum Outdoor Centre.

This attractive route is mainly along broad firm paths through the lowlying semi-natural parkland beside the Dighty Burn just north of its outflow into the Firth of Tay, on the east side of Dundee. To make a circuit, two short sections of the route at either end follow tarmac-surfaced paths and quiet roads, one passing close to Monifieth High School. There are more challenging informal tracks on the south side of the burn but we would recommend only experienced cyclists attempt these routes.

Going straight up the B955 from Kirrie to Dykehead is best. Carry on up the glen from there, but where the road divides at Gella Bridge, local cyclists feel safer turning right. This is because most of the traffic goes up the west side and down the east. It feels more comfortable if you can see cars approaching rather than have them come up behind. The roads come together at Milton of Clova where the Clova Hotel offers a welcome break as well as good food and hospitality.

The main B966 out of Brechin can be busy with fast traffic, which can be a bit uncomfortable on a bike. It's a little bit longer but by taking Cookston Road out of Brechin to Parkend, then turning right on a minor road to Newtonhill it's possible to miss out the worst bit of the B966. After this, the route follows the B966 through Edzell and then up Glen Esk. The road winds through the birch woods, some with steep gradients on either side. There is a lot of activity, both farming and wildlife in the glen, so it is worth keeping your head up so as not to miss the sights as they appear. Birds in particular can provide a welcome interlude.

You can start this run on either B951 from Kirriemuir or on B952 from Alyth, although the latter is not actually in Angus.  From Kirriemuir, cyclists can have a long and very hilly round trip by taking the Kaims or Airlie road, jus past Kinnordy, turning off to Lintrathen, along to Reekie Linn via Peel over the Isla Bridge, turning right and heading over Kilry Hill to Brewlands Bridge then turning right and coming back down Glen Isla.

South of Aberfeldy, this extensive forest normally has a variety of nature trails and excellent mountain biking opportunities.  For the spirited mountain biker, it is possible to cycle from Dunkeld to Aberfeldy via Griffin, past a string of secluded lochs.

Highland Perthshire has an amazing choice of off-road routes for mountain bikes.

This circuit around Hill of Rowan follows good tracks over heather moorland, past the ruins of old farms and a Bronze Age settlement. There are impressive views towards the head of Glen Esk and the crags beyond Loch Lee.

The Gairie Burn flows right through the centre of the town in a deeply eroded valley. While this has split the development of the town, it has also created very pleasant open places with its own network of paths. The Den runs from Lochmill Road where the path to Kinnordy Loch begins and runs right through to the site of the old railway station in Marywell Gardens. The Den can be enjoyed for its own sake or it can be included in a loop from the town centre following the vintage signposts.

Walk up Roods from the town centre then turn right up track to the Camera Obscura and you will soon find yourself in the open on Kirrie Hill with amazing views of the Angus hills. If you continue past the cemetery you will find a path on the right, which takes you along the top of a disused quarry. Follow this to a triangulation point and you will be rewarded with another vista across Strathmore towards Forfar.
