The B826 is a short B-road in south Perthshire. It starts on the A84 just to the south of Doune and heads west past a cemetery and out across fields. For the next three miles it enjoys a rather uneventful journey, with no particularly difficult bends and passing a few scattered buildings but no settlements of any size. Although higher hills can just be seen away on the horizon, the B826 remains relatively flat throughout, except for the final dip at the western end. The road is all S2, with a couple of slightly narrower sections, and has a couple of longer, undulating straights. Eventually the road ends at a T-junction on the A873 (former B825) at Burnhead Old Toll at the eastern end of Thornhill.
Remarkably, perhaps, the B826 still follows the same route it was first assigned a century ago, and doesn't appear to have seen any substantial improvements in that time.
