    busy roads The Forth Bridges is most impressive from a designated viewpoint after the short and sharp climb out of Queensferry on the road to Grangemouth The road is medium undulating Take the road to Falkirk town and up to Denny The road through the Campsie hills to Fintry can be difficult to find so your best bet is to ask for directions in the local garage or in a shop This road steeply rises up the Carron Valley from Denny for the first three kilometres Then the road goes in the valley in a gentle climb for the next five kilometres until the dam at Carron Valley Reservoir The road along Carron Valley Reservoir is gentle and fine The descent down to Fintry shops from Carron Valley Reservoir is done in two stages interrupted by a short steep climb The last descend down to Fintry is done on a very bad road with plenty of potholes Take care Fintry is a nice village with some shops The road down the valley to Killearn is undulating with an excellent view towards the Trossachs When reaching Killearn take the road down the hillside over the A 81 and over the river

    town in United Kingdom The view over to Isle Of Mull is brilliant Oban is also a very important ferry port with daily ferries to The Western Isles Isle Of Mull and the small islands to the south of Isle Of Mull The road from Oban goes over a small hill for the first two kilometres before it follow Loch Etive for the next thirty kilometres The road is quite flat with exception from a short hilly section just after the railway bridge at Taynult Beware of red deer sheep drunks roadkill and rabbits The road leaves Loch Etive and goes up to Pass of Brander A small almost a non existent climb follows for the next five kilometres before you are on the top of Pass Of Brander at Loch Awe This lake is one of the biggest lakes in Scotland The road is flat with exceptions from some steep sections over the railway some kilometres before Dalmally After leaving Loch Awe the road is flat again An alternative very hilly 10 km longer route is over Inveraray and Rest and Be Thankful The small village of Dalmally has some shops but they are never open 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 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 hill when crossing the railway line From Crianlarich take the road A 82 to the right under the railway bridge up a short sharp climb to a small moor the highest point on this cycle trip From

    the road leaves Loch Linnhe at the bridge at Ballachulish The views towards Glen Coe and across Loch Linnhe is superb The village of Glen Coe shops awaits after some kilometres The moderate steep climb up to valley to the top of Glen Coe goes through the most dramatic alpine scenery in Scotland The views along this climb is worthy the whole cycle trip alone From the top of Glen Coe there is a rapid descent to Kingshouse Hotel drinks food before the long arduous climb up to the highest point of the tour Rannoch Moor The climb up the moor goes on forever and it is very exposed to the weather The road drops down from the top of Rannoch Moor to lake and a new climb This rather flat climb is not hard but it you have run empty on the climbs up Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor which I always do this is quite a nasty sting of the tail From the top of this climb the descent to Bridge Of Orchy is vertical The road now goes along a small lake up a very small hill and down to the Bridge Of Orchy hotel Although the food and drink in this pub is expensive I recommend a meal in this pub Mainly because you will need the strength for the rest of the tour The road from Bridge Of Orchy climbs again to a new 300 meters above sea level mountain The climb does not seems steep but it is arduous and should be treated with respect From the top of this climb the road drops down to Tyndrum The shops and newsagents offer a welcome rest The road down the valley to Crianlarich shops is moderate undulating with a short nasty hill when crossing the

    trip is a classic The road starts with a small climb out of Dumbarton The road goes over a very small hill and rejoins the Clyde coast after three kilometres Then the road climbs again over a small hill after Cardross shops before it falls again down to the small town of Helensburgh shops The road follows the seafront of Helensburgh Rhu and the Faslane naval base until the road sharply climbs up to the hill above Garelochhead The view in all directions is breath taking The road follow the hill above Loch Long before it sharply falls down to Loch Long The brakes get some severe pounding during this descent Beware The road along Loch Long is moderate undulating and very funny The view across Loch Long towards the mountains is very good Beware of anglers rabbits foxes eagles red deer and sheep At the end of Loch Long Arrochar shops is situated The view towards the Cobbler a mountain is superb The road goes over a small hill to Tarbet at Loch Lomond The road down to Dumbarton is relative flat with only a small hill right after Tarbet There is a cycle path from Tarbet to Luss

    ideal for a bike The road itself is quite dirty and bumpy and demands the utmost respect The landscape on a sunny day is simply breathtaking and alone worth the whole trip This cycle trip is highly highly recommended The train from Glasgow to Ardrossan and the ferry to Arran also makes this a very special experience Take the road to the left south when you have left the ferry quay in Brodick shops The road is steep and sets the tone for the rest of the tour The road goes over a hill to Lamlash shops Then the road goes up over a small hill again to Whiting Bay shops The views are breath taking and the same is the gradient of the road But the real extreme road comes after leaving Whiting Bay This 20 km long stretch is one of the most desperate undulating stretches of road anywhere in Scotland The road goes steep up from Whiting Bay and around the corner to the south coast of Arran The road follows a terrace high above the sea The cycling is very technical difficult with a lot of short very sharp climbs and descents The worst descent comes at Kilmory shops where your brakes will be severely tested The road from Kilmory rises again to it reaches the west coast of Arran The road from the corner between the south and the west coast to Blackwaterfoot shops is medium undulating The road from Blackwaterfoot up the west coast starts with a moderate climb but it then flattens out and most of the road is flat The view across to the Kintyre peninsula is interesting If you are lucky you will see seals in the sea along the road up to Lochranza shops This small village is scenic The
