Any suggestions of good road in Scotland?

Post by Muddy pockets » Thu May 16, 2013 5:43 pm

Hi all. New here. Just wandered if anyone had any suggestions of good biking road in Scotland. Me and a friend are taking a trip out there in a few weeks just for a couple of days, nothing major.

Virtually anything outside of the Central Belt / the A9 from Perth to Inverness.

Whereabouts in Scotland you planning on heading to?

Check out also current issue of ABR - page 36 - top 5 touring Roads in Scotland- plus there are lots more not mentioned in the edition.

Over Rannoch Moor & down Glencoe, Ft William to Mallaig, Ft William to Inverness, any road that ends up in Gairloch or Ullapool just had 9 days up there only rained twice once for 3 days & once for 4 days, but I still enjoyed it!!

I've to start again now buying & fitting all the bits I had on the previous cb500x!!! :D

For me it's the A87 from Invergarry to Kyle of Lochalsh.

Open, fast & tight & twisty . . . .all the time surrounded by spectacular views that will have you gasping in yer lid.
Well it works for me . . . .everytime I ride it (twice already this year and it's only May :whistle: ;) )
