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: ;) )

From past experience, just take yourself ou the west side of Scotland, the good roads will find you. Sometimes the best roads you find are those you just come across with very little planning,and Scotland is a great example of this.

Another vote for the Kinlochleven loop, not the longest run but worth doing a few times :)
