Access is from the A827 Aberfeldy road, just west of the A9 at Ballinluig. For the right bank, turn left on a single-track road just before entering Logierait (coming from the A9; no signpost; just after a "road narrows" sign, and about 100m before the Logierait Inn). Go over the old railway bridge and continue until you reach Balnamuir Farm, where there is a parking area. Walk to the river as per the permit book guidelines.
For the left bank, continue through Logierait and, after about 1 mile, at the road's nearest approach to the river, you will see an opening on the left of the main road (grid ref 954525; there are two converging drystane dykes at the edge of a wood on the righthand side of the road). This leads to a parking area next to some trees. Park here and continue as per permit book. NB This is an awkward entrance on a busy road with speeding traffic – it is best to reverse into the parking if possible, as reversing out onto the main road can be dangerous (best if someone guides you out).
