Boxy 2 Pitlochry by B roads
Great loop for beginners. Not too long, plenty of twists and turns to get used to the gear changes and leaning the bike over. Also really good practice for 'lifesaver' checks and road surface hazard awareness.
Covered loads of times on here..I stopped and took some images March 2016
Long day but the best roads
Mixed roads, just going where we fancied
Nice run with great stop off points
Another good long run...up A82 Loch Lomondside.... leave early miss traffic and significant others of course !... nice big bends at the head of the Loch climbing up to Crianlarich. On to the Green Welly... and Dalmally...(Reviews already on here) cut over to Inverary, Lochgilphead...and down the Lochside to Campbeltown, loop back up to Tarbet (Loch Fyne)... option here to get the ferry to Portavadie...go in to the Marina...world class outlet, they do a 9 quid cheeseburger and chips...outstanding!.
Road from Portavadie A886 Road isn't brill to begin with but sweetens out...up the rest and be thankful heading to Arrochar, over to Tarbet (Loch Lomondside) thentoward Balloch/Dumbarton/Glasgow.
Great run, loads of options to head off on to different roads and something a wee bit different with getting the Ferry to Portavadie for that 9 quid cheeseburger...
Great roads, fast and twisty except the A9 bit. Great views as well.
Good and twisty with great views, approx 110 miles.
great run a lot of twisties
This route takes about and hour and a half. When leaving the back of dundee there is nice roads and scenery from the outset but once you pass Coupar Angus it comes alive.
The road about 10 miles prior to Pitlochry is immense, wide open, fast corners, beautiful scenery and ride along side a river for lots of it. Beautiful part of the country!
Nice corners and spectacular scenery. If you are in area - have a ride! Highly reccommended
This loop is a favorite for all riders, its got the whole package for the cruisers and the speedy whippets. I start this route at Lossiemouth but it can be started at Elgin its just one road that i love that youll miss out, its good for warming up for the tyres. Head west on the A96, once past fochabers follow signs for the coastal route (West) through some gorgeous towns with great views, Cullen is a favorite for me. Once at Banff you head south towards Huntly and then Dufftown and the caingorms, it is an A road but different to A roads in England, only a couple of very short spells of duel-carriageway and the rest is tight corners with rises and falls to keep you on your game. Warning, police like to sit in Aberlour as you hit the 30 zone, otherwise its all good! When you reach the mecca that is Grantown-On-Spey then you head north on the route which will take you to Nairn or Forres, take your pick when the road forks, they are just as good as each other. Watch out before the road forks, full of humps on a long straight and its all to easy to clock flying hours if your giving it some. Once at your chosen town turn right on the A96, this will soon get boring to try taking the left at the roundabout towards RAF Kinloss, great curvey roads that will take you the back roads to Lossiemouth. Taa Dah!! Let me know what you think.
Open flowing twisties beginning in the spectacular setting of Ballater in the Cairngorm National park.Ends in the seaside town of Banff. Fantastic biker friendly hotel/B&B at halfway point- Kildrummy Inn. Wet bikes welcome!
23.5 miles. The Sma Glen (on the A822 section) is just a magical place ... stunning scenery. The road itself is a hoot with lots and lots of bends .. plenty of decent straights too. This is a favourite route for local bikers.
Another nice road in this stunning part of the country, some nice corners through a great environment.
Newtonmore to Laggan section - mixture of all types of corners, needs lot of concentration.
Laggan to Spean Bridge - lovely scenery, lots of fast corners and straight section.
Beware of Johnny Foreigner thought in the summer months. He is quite liable to be all over the road and stopping suddenly to take in the views.
Well worth a stop at Laggan Dam.
Enjoy ever changing scenery as it flows through 12 miles of heather, forest, streams with mountains on either side.
The road T-Juctions just below Dufftown, turn left and ride into the town, at the town clock, turn right to Craigellachie.
Lunch at the Craigellachie hotel is a real treat, make a bee-line for a meal in the bar. The food is excellent and the small bar atmosphere is exceptional - being surrounded by 500 bottles of Speyside Whisky!
This is a really good alternative route to or from Aberdeenshire / Speyside. Linked together with Craigellachie, Granton-On-Spey and Kildrummy, it makes a fine circulatory day out.
Crossing the River Spey onto the B9102. This well paved, twisty single track follows the west bank Spey for 15 miles to Granton-on-Spey. A gorgeous ride where pheasants and squirrels abound with the occasional deer. Theres a good ice cream shop on the main street in Granton thats well worth a break for ice cream, hot chocolate or pastries.
Cross over the Bridge of Balgie, turn right and immediately stop at the country Post Office for one of the best bowls of soup on the planet before continuing through the finest forested Glen (Lyon) in Scotland towards Fontingall. Fontingall is home to some beautiful thatched cottages (by McLaren) a fine wee Kirk and the Yew = the oldest living thing in Europe at about 5000 years old. In the field across the road, there is small monument that defines the burial grounds of some 200 persons having died during the Black Plague. Legend has it that there was only one survivor - a woman, having gone mad as a result of having buried them all. A few miles past Fontingall, at Keltneyburn turn left and you can join the (B846)
A great alternative rural route when traversing Perthshire. Taken south to north from Killin. A827 from Killin at about 5 miles, turn left into the Ben Lawers park towards Bridge of Balgie and Glen Lyon. This is a single track for about 12 miles with spectacular views of Ben Lawers, smaller peaks and surrounding glens.
