This route starts at the south end of Kinross High Street. The alignment of National Route 1 is different from that shown on the 2009 Coast and Castles North map – instead of running up the High Street, Route 1 now uses the Loch Leven Heritage Trail round the loch.
Route 775 was opened in 2012 and follows Kinross High Street northwards, which becomes ‘Muirs’ and then South Street through Milnathort. At The Cross in Milnathort, the route turns right onto New Road (A911) and Perth Road (B996). After about half a mile, at the end of the village, the route turns left up the road signed as the Hattonburn Road. After heading over the M90, the route continues on quiet, rural roads with excellent views over the surrounding country, passing through the village of Glenfarg and then down to Bridge of Earn. It’s a bit of a climb back up from the River Tay, but there is a traffic-free path alongside the A912, which takes you under the M90 and it slip roads, to the edge of Perth.
The route has not been signed into the centre of Perth, but to link with Route 77 you should find the west bank of the River Tay and follow it until you see the Route 77 signs at the Perth Bridge.
