    exposed to wind and weather Do not do this tour in strong wind from South or East The road from Banff to Aberdeen is very exposed to wind This tour is recommended for it s diversity and it s length It is simply a nice tour out in the countryside The first part along A 96 goes along the North Sea Or rather along farmlands and through woodlands some kilometers from the sea It is only after crossing River Spey and taking the A 98 at Fochabers shops towards Fraserburgh that you come down to the sea Take the road down to Portgordon A 990 through Buckie shops The small road follows the North Sea Take the road back again to A 98 and over the hill to the Cullen village shops This village which is situated under a disused viaduct is a true gem The road goes over a small hill again before it goes down to the sea just before Banff This scenic city is worthy the whole trip alone Visit the harbour Turn right at the bridge over the river towards Aberdeen The road A 947 goes moderate steep up along the river and over to Turriff

    And Be Thankful Fill up with soft drinks and food Approx ten kilometers after the flat and scenic road along Loch Fyne you start the climb up to Rest And Be Thankful The climb is moderate steep along Loch Fyne until you meet the road from Inveraray A83 The first hill from that crossroad is steep But it flattens out before the road sharply takes off up a valley to the right This steep climb is about 1 kilometres long Then the road goes along a small lake for some hundred meters until you are on the top of Rest And Be Thankful The view is worth all the sweat and pain The descent down to Loch Long is approx 4 km long The upper part is very bumpy due to frequent stone falls hitting the road Take care The road goes in Loch Long to Arrochar shops WC An alternative 10 km longer route is to take the road along Loch Long to Helensburgh and Dumbarton The downside is that it contains three hills including one major hill just before Helensburgh train to Dumbarton Glasgow Edinburgh the rest of the world But the road has very moderate traffic and

    It is one of my favourite cycle trips in Scotland The trip starts with a moderate one kilometre long climb from Balloch shops over a hill to Drymen The road down from the top of the hill to Drymen offers some excellent views towards the mountains surrounding Loch Lomond At the crossroad take the road to the left towards Drymen shops A one kilometre constant climb through Drymen follows After three kilometres you come to a crossroad between the road to Glasgow Stirling and Aberfoyle Take the road to the left to Aberfoyle The road down and over the plains to Aberfoyle is quite bad Be alert if you want to avoid punctures and personal injuries Aberfoyle shops the official gate to the Trossachs Follow the road signs very carefully when entering Aberfoyle because the road goes very steep to the right from the main street in Aberfoyle towards the Duke The views along this vertical two kilometres climb is breath taking On the top of the Duke you also have a splendid view over the Trossachs forest Be very careful on the descent down from the Duke Some of the turns are quite dusty and sharp At one kilometre at the end of the descent you are at the crossroad between Loch Katrine and Callander Take the moderate undulating road to the right towards Callander The town of Callander has every shop you need including some cycle repair shops After a well deserved break take the road A 81 towards Glasgow The unnamed hill between Callander and Lake Menteith is on approx 200 meters above sea level The climb is medium steep The vertical drop down from this mountain will be a severe test of your brakes and nerves At the end of the descent take the road to

    the trunk road to Tarbet Take the road in the direction of Campbeltown A 83 over the small hill to Arrochar shops and along Loch Long to the foot of the climb up to Rest And Be Thankful The first climb is moderate the second climb is very steep before you comes to the main climb 2 5 km up to the top of Rest And Be Thankful The scenery is breath taking A rapid descent follows to Loch Fyne The road follows Loch Fyne for 30 km before you come to Inveraray shops Take the road A 819 to the left towards Oban The first climb is very steep but the rest of this hill is relative flat with some moderate climbing towards the end The top of the hill is around 200 metres above sea level The view over Loch Awe is worth all the sweat and pain The vertical drop to Loch Awe is a test of nerves and brakes The 10 km up through the forest along Loch Awe is moderate undulating Just after the crossroad between Oban and Glasgow follow the road to Glasgow is the small village of Dalmally It has some shops but they are never open You may be luckier than I was last time Just after Dalmally is the climb to the valley leading to Tyndrum In my view this is the most uninteresting part of Scotland The valley up to Tyndrum is without any interesting details The climb is almost flat but it takes it s toll After twenty kilometres of dull cycling you are in Tyndrum The shops and newsagents offer a welcome rest The road down the valley to Crianlarich shops is moderate undulating with a short nasty climb when crossing the railway line From Crianlarich take the

    811 just under Stirling Castle towards Balloch The road is dead flat for the first 20 kilometres It starts to climb a bit before Bucklyvie shops and it continues to climb for the best part of 10 kilometres But the climb is very gentle and is normally taken in heavy gears The view across the valley towards Ben Lomond and the Trossachs are fantastic The road climbs slowly up to
