NCN Route 766 is a short cycle route which is largely incomplete at present. However, it is possible to cycle most of the way either off road, or on quiet roads.
Cycle Lanes on the A9 in Bridge of Allan
Starting on the NCN76 at Stirling Station, route 766 heads north, occasionally using the A9, but more often than not running along parallel side streets to Causewayhead Roundabout. Turning west with the A9, most of the route through Bridge of Allan is on side roads, or on dedicated cycle lanes on the A9 itself. There are one or two gaps, but the lanes continue as far as the NSL signs. However, by turning off just before the Bridge of Allan, it is possible to use the old Glen Road to reach Dunblane, this is one of the proposed future routes for NCN765.
Once in Dunblane, the route turns off the A820 onto Old Doune Road, which uses a footbridge to cross the A9 and follow the old road past a couple of farms. A new tarred path then links to the A820 opposite the Argaty Road junction. Follow this minor road and just over the river a small parking area provides a link onto the old railway line into Doune.
At present the safest onward route to Callander is to cross Doune Bridge and take the B8032 and then the last mile or so of the A81 to meet NCN7. However, the final proposed route is to use the old railway line from Doune to Buchany, and then take the hilly road through Drumloist, and then picking up the railway line again for the final run into Callander.
