Murthly loop closed.
It is a single track line with a passing loop at Dunkeld which is the only remaining open station.
The line largely runs north west distantly following the route of the River Tay from Stanley Junction where it began from the Scottish Midland Junction, part of the main line to Aberdeen via Forfar [2nd] later owned by the Caledonian Railway. At Dunkeld the line is on the south bank of the Tay, on the opposite bank to Dunkeld itself.
These locations are along the line.
