C417 Perth - Bridge of Earn
This article is about the Class III road numbered C417 maintained by Perth and Kinross Council.

.

The C417 forms a loop serving the small village of Rhynd to the south east of Perth. The route starts and finishes on the A912, not much more than a mile apart, after making a loop around Moncreiffe Hill. It is a contrasting road, flat on the south side and reasonably straight, hilly and twisting on the north.

The road starts at the north end of the Bridge of Earn before heading under the M90 and keeping a relatively straight course along the flat rural land north of the River Earn. After a couple of minor bends it takes a sharp left just past the Mains of Kinmonth and soon starts a climb up the extreme eastern part of the hill at Fingask.

Now taking a more westerly route, it passes the only sizeable settlement at Rhynd at its highest point and afterwards begins its descent with views north over the River Tay, and westwards towards Perth. The road ends at Friarton after crossing the M90 just north of the Craigend Interchange.

The road heading along the north flank of Moncreiffe Hill, with Perth in the distance.
