Whoever mapped these routes is a genius .. absolutely stunning riding door to door.
The North route in particular is a bikers dream .. well done and thank you for sharing ?
If you’ve done or thinking of doing the NC500 then consider this gem of an area. You won’t regret it & no battling with campers & motorhomes. ?
My wife and i love touring together and brought our Triumph Tiger 900s for a holiday. We’ve just had the most fabulous time riding these routes. Thank you so much for putting them together. A great way to see so much of Scotland. We will be back to do it all again only the other way round!
Where shall I ride today? All the work done for you. Download the maps to your Sat nav and ride. Maps cover some fantastic roads and scenery.
Did it a couple of weeks ago (well N,S and East) loved it, fantastic riding.
Had a brilliant week doing these routes, north and west have to be my favourite
Just back from riding the cloverleaf. Did this solo on my Ducati Monster 797 and camped at Comrie Croft. Had an amazing few days. The roads and scenery are amazing!
Did this last year can’t recommend enough brilliant roads and hardly any traffic.
After a six night stay in Crieff to experience the Cloverleaf, I can highly (HIGHLY) recommend the area & the routes.
We did all the North, East, South & West routes along with a couple of the Little Leaf routes. Each one brought a variety of roads & areas to explore.
The town of Crieff is a great location with plenty of places to stay & dine out.
It was great to meet up with Kona who is the architect of the whole Crieff Cloverleaf routes & concept. Was the icing on the cake to personally thank her for the hard work on what I think will surpass the NC500 on where to go in Scotland.
We can’t wait to return.
Really great riding roads, particularly the Northern Route … B&B was great, perfect base for a biking holiday. Full marks all round!
I can’t recommend the Crieff Cloverleaf highly enough – fantastic roads including old favourites like Glenshee & other narrower hidden gems I’d never have discovered on my own. Considering I was there over a sunny August bank holiday weekend I couldn’t get over how empty the roads were. I was extraordinarily lucky with the weather (in danger of sunburn sat outside the Old Fire Station cafe in Tomintoul drinking tea).
I wanted to say thank you SO MUCH for creating these routes and making them available. We had a truly awesome time and fell wholeheartedly in love with the roads and the landscape in this part of Scotland.
Our thanks to you for your efforts which helped make this one of the best holidays we have ever had in the UK.
Rode three of the main leaves and built the fourth into where I needed to get to. Crieff is in a great position as the basis for lots of rides. Comrie is also a great place to stay and has a great chippie ?
Blooming brilliant. Great roads met others doing the same. Fab B & B. Will definitely be back.
Tip: download GPX to sat nav and back up on SD card, so if your sat nav like mine has a turn itself off and lose everything moment, you are covered.
Brilliant holiday, fantastic roads. Loved every minute ? ??️
Just get on and do it brilliant roads
Many thanks to all concerned for creating a superb ‘tour when you don’t have to tour’. GPX files are a winner and get you off the beaten track onto the good stuff the locals know about, all together with some of the best scenery, and accommodation at Fir Tree B&B was outstanding.
The Crieff Cloverleaf website came up on FB, very interesting and well laid out. We are looking to visit Cellardyke as one side of my family originate from there (Great-great grandfather). With the maps of the routes, and the accommodation laid out, it simplifies the search. Will look forward to using it.
Just got back after a week doing the Cloverleaf we had an amazing time, the weather was very kind, would absolutely recommend this to anyone, and the Fir Tree B&B as a great place to stay. Also the food in Crieff is top notch with a great welcome ? Brilliant trip fairplay
Fantastic routes and great centre to stay!
Just come back from doing cloverleaf. Wow it’s brill. Definitely doing it again. asap.
Great routes including some of the narrower singletrack sections which I’d never have discovered myself, but was delighted to explore (e.g. Glen Orchy). I knew I was off to a good start having enjoyed the Peebles leg of the southern route – a great way to enter Scotland without the usual tedious motorway slog. My favourite route was the western route (lochs and glens in glorious sunshine), though Glenshee on the northern loop was also fantastic. The eastern ride is more of a traditional Sunday blast through a tamer agricultural Scotland (cereal fields, lush pasture and soft fruit farms – cranachan country!) to which I added a fish & chip detour to Anstruther. Even though I was there over a bank holiday weekend, I was surprised at the relative lack of traffic, even through Glencoe where the car parks were busy. Fewer numpties in hired motorhomes with no idea what a passing place is for, as compared with the NC500.
I was very well looked after by Aileen & Nick at the excellent Fir Tree B&B. Like at a ski chalet, on returning after a day’s ride, I was greeted with tea and home made cake or scones.
Excellent will be recommending it to all my biker friends
I’ve been up here for a few days now – fabulous roads, glorious scenery, wonderful people.
Check out the Crieff Cloverleaf website and get yourself up here if you can.
Just come back from a brilliant long weekend, staying at the Fir Tree B&B in Crieff. Managed to cover a few of the Cloverleaf tours and ad-libbed a few of our own as well.
Aileen and Nick were fantastic hosts at the Fir Tree, they made us feel welcome and relaxed from the moment we rolled into the parking area on the bikes, they were so helpful and made our stay extra special, the rooms are very high standard, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
The Crieff Cloverleaf Tour site is absolutely brilliant and well thought out, the routes are fantastic just wish we would have had more time to do them all. We will definitely use the site again and stay at the Fir Tree B&B. Thank you Aileen and Nick for making our stay brilliant, enjoyable and memorable.
Just come from Scotland and done the clover awesome roads epic scenery
We did the West and North. Excellent routes. The North route is a loooong day though…
Done as a group tour with Yorvik Vikings TOMCC loved every minute and will return next year to do more routes. Fir Tree accommodation outstanding.
The North route was the best 230 odd miles of A & B roads that I have ridden in the UK and could have been created just for motorbikes add to that super weather and NO traffic…… A very creative and well planned out route by the team at Crieff. Everybody should try this route/ride at least once in their life. The last 23m from Aberfeldy to Crieff….. awesome!! That’s why I have booked last week in May next year.
Just spent four days riding the Crieff Cloverleaf routes easy known the concept was thought up by a biker with amazing routes that will satisfy everyone’s level of riding ability. We stayed with Nick and Aileen who I can’t recommend highly enough who spoilt us with the amazing breakfasts and comfortable rooms. We will definitely be back.
What a fantastic concept and execution the Cloverleaf is. Just got back from 4 days there, staying at Fir Tree Bed and Breakfast – Nick and Aileen were the perfect hosts – welcoming you back after a hard day in the saddle with a cuppa and a scone. The rooms and breakfast were also fab. My only disappointment is that I didn’t allow more days to do more of the tours, but I can confirm that the North and West tours are brilliant. The GPX files and waypoints make the whole experience easier too. Highly recommended.
Just done the North and West route, all I can say is Superb ??
Highly recommend this – did it earlier this month. A great idea and great roads and scenery.
Brilliant routes. For bikers of all ages and types of machines ??
Just spent four days riding the cloverleaf routes, enjoyed good weather and all routes were excellent particularly North and West, highly recommended. The routes have a good proportion of B roads, single track with passing places (this means a little gravel) so take it steady. I stayed with Nick & Aileen at their Firtree b&b, couldn’t have been looked
after better. Bike safely tucked away in their parking area, bucket and sponge to clean off the days bugs and a towel to dry off seat in the morning ?
Great routes, particularly off the main roads. Did some Little Leaf days with buddies from university days.
Coming from South England, I overnighted on Friday in Darlington, then started the trip off with a spin through Kielder Forest, before going over the hills to Moffat to commence with the northbound leg of the south loop.
Did West and North runs on dry & sunny days. East run had low cloud, which made the run round to Perth somewhat damp. Last day was the South loop, south direction. As a slight enhancement I included the road from Comrie to Braco, then deviated around Carron Water, before picking up the route south to Moffat. Using the old road (B7076) to Moffat kept me out of the spray on the A74. On way south, deviated at Penrith to try the Hartside pass route, as recommended by Ride – it was v. wet !
Got back home with an extra 1750 miles in a week.
The Cloverleaf tour is brilliant it has a bit of everything in there road wise. The north route and west route were my favourite with some of the best roads and scenery I’ve ever seen. And the Fir Free b & b was second to none with Aileen and Nick amazing hosts. Loved the fresh scones after every ride and the breakfast choices. Would love to return one day.
Absolutely cracking set of routes. All types of roads from fast sweepers to single track back roads and everything in-between. Add the brilliant scenery into the mix and you just can’t go wrong. Most of the roads were not particularly busy (last week of August) though there was a bit more traffic on the western route than the others, as might be expected. We stayed at the FirTree B&B which was again absolutely brilliant. Congratulations to all concerned. We will be back again!
Just got back from a 4 night stay while riding the Crieff Cloverleaf (which was amazing).
This was the first time visiting Crieff and we loved it. We wanted to explore this area on our motorbike and we fell in love with the stunning views and excellent roads on the doorstep.
Excellent Routes on Breathtaking Roads. Visited Crieff after reading about it on social media… The Cloverleaf routes were excellent … can not wait to return.
Brilliant!!! Lovely roads with cracking scenery. The surprise goody bag on arrival at b&b a nice touch. The accommodation was amazing at Firtree b&b, side stand pads and towels for wet seats available in the car park and drying room available for wet gear. Would definitely recommend the whole experience to anyone looking to get away from it all!
Just got back from four days on the Crieff Cloverleaf tour, all I can say is the whole experience was superb & so enjoyable. The routes were a good mix of roads without lots of traffic, whoever sorted these routes did a cracking job & deserves a big pat on the back. Our base for our stay was The Fir Tree bed & breakfast which was through the RoomLink. The hosts Aileen & Nick were so welcoming & the hospitality, food, cleanliness & facilities second to none. We will no doubt be returning for another visit in the future & cannot recommend it highly enough.
I was on a motorcycle trip touring Scotland and used Crieff as a base to explore the fantastic roads local to Crieff.
We stayed at the Fir Tree with Aileen and Nick, for five days. Great breakfast and the rooms were perfect. The Cloverleaf was a fantastic 5 days. Many thanks.
Just returned from a fantastic few days in Crieff, can recommended the Fir Tree B&B, a great welcome, good quality rooms and very hospitable hosts Aileen and Nick. Also a very good breakfast to set you up for the day.
The routes are well planned and take you on great biking roads you would never have found on your own, we did a couple of Little Leaf routes as well which do not compromise on the roads or scenery but are a lot shorter but you can easily add on to them. Will be returning next year.
A very pretty, warm and welcoming town which has amazing day rides on excellent roads leading out in all directions. All rides are well thought out and have a great mix of roads and recommended stops to enjoy the spectacular scenery and great food the area has to offer. Well done for putting them together. It’s great having a central point to stay and ride from so you don’t need to pack up each day? ?
Just spent 6 fantastic days over at Crieff. Stayed at the Fir Tree B&B Galvelbeg house which was brilliant accommodating. Aileen & Nick were great hosts and couldn’t have done enough for us, the tea and scones were great on return every evening! We did some fantastic routes, some of the Cloverleaf routes and some other routes as well! Couldn’t recommend it enough!
Did the west route yesterday, absolutely brilliant way to spend a day on the bike. Had just about everything ?
Thanks for posting the routes. It was your ‘interview’ with Nathan Millward that drew your site to my attention. I’ve just spent the last 4 days doing all 4 main routes. No need for speed just being at peace on the bike! Thanks again!
Well what can I say, probably the best 4 days I have had riding my bike with the wife doing the Cloverleaf tour from arriving in Crieff Monday afternoon to the most fabulous B&B The Fir Tree lovely comfy room, superb hosts and fabulous service, we specially loved tea and scones on arrival after each ride.
We started with the East leaf run, fab roads lots of vistas, although the route misses out St Andrews we decided to stop for a break and coffee, well worth seeing without all the golf fanatics. We then embarked on the South route. A ride into Stirling is well worth it and a drive past the Kelpies (better in the evening when lit up apparently). The roads throughout the Borders were very quiet. The next day on to the West route, well what can I say, stunning roads, stunning ride, stunning views!!!! So much to see and do I could write an essay but I’ll let you make your own minds up, defo a must do. Then the last but best route (in my opinion) again too much good stuff to mention, the ride [North] over and around the Cairngorm national park is truly
We did the NC500 3 years ago and I personally think that the Cloverleaf is much better.
I did it earlier this year, brilliant rides and routes…
This really is the best B&B I have ever stayed in, better than a lot of hotels I have stayed at […] the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them, you were spoilt for choice at breakfast and on returning after a good day’s riding you are greeted with a choice of tea, coffee and home made scones, perfect.
Just finished the Cloverleaf myself, excellent time had with excellent weather to boot.
We were a group of 6 on a motorbike holiday – was great that the B&B had its own back area to park – and gated – really nice place – one of the best B&B i have stayed in – Aileen and Nick are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel very welcome – the rooms are very clean and comfortable would not hesitate to stay there again.
Six of us stayed for 6 nights whilst we explored the routes and more of the Crieff Cloverleaf motorcycle tours. […] Crieff is a great location to be based in to explore some of the best roads that Scotland has to offer for those on two wheels. There is a good selection of restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes. The only downside is for those of us trying to watch our weight, the food portions are massive in this part of Scotland!
We had a great trip as well[…] The runs were well thought out and on good road surfaces. We will be back sometime to do it again.
Such good riding roads and you don’t need to get on a ferry. Just get on your bike and ride North. Fantastic trip.
I have just got home from having completed the E, W and N, with a bit of the south on the way out. The routes were brilliant with a good mix of twisty back roads and long sweeping faster stretches… All of the roads were in good condition and the setting they are in is simply stunning. The accommodation was fantastic, starting on arrival being greeted with a puck to use. The attention to detail was brilliant. This is something I would like to be able to do again…
Did the N W S rides last week, great fun some amazing roads we will be back to ride them again. Well done to the organisers that set these routes out.
Just completed three days on Cloverleaf E W and N. Congratulations to the organisers for a great three days.
Excellent hotel, stayed for 3 nights as was completing the Cloverleaf motorcycle tours. Very friendly couple & made us feel exceptionally welcome. Breakfast was exactly what I needed before a long ride. […] When I do it all again this is the first hotel I will call for availability.
Beautiful place and hosts are 2nd to none! […] Soooo glad we ended up staying here instead of the previous place we were going to book. […]Parking off the road is ideal, and safe for the motorbikes […] If you’re contemplating the Cloverleaf route or even just wanting a great friendly place to base yourself for seeing the amazing scenery and roads.. book this. Simple as. Seriously fantastic […] made us both question why we ever bothered staying elsewhere before… or camping!
The accommodation was superb and the breakfast kept us going all day, nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend a stay here and will be revisiting next time I’m in the area.
I completed the Cloverleaf last week, brilliant four days riding. […] Rode my trusty Honda Pan-European 1300. Well worth it, whoever came up with the routes, thank you.
