KINTYRE WAY by BIKE

Video and GPS track of a rideable Kintyre Way


A few sections of the walking route are too narrow, too steep, or too fragile to be explored on bicycles.  

With local knowledge and advice we've plotted a rideable alternative for gravel and mountain bikes. (Video sooon)

GREAT ROAD RIDE

Ardnamurchan and Mull


Long before I ever met Sean, he regularly travelled north to tackle this ride with friends.

It was Sean who called it Scotland's best century ride in an article, and I thought I'd use the same description.

The crossings make the timings harder than a normal century ride.  So it's best ridden on a sunny, summer day with long evenings, paying close attention to the times of the last ferries.

Saturday is changeover day on most rental cottages so there's more traffic on the roads and ferries.  Sunday has less frequent sailings.

CALEDONIA WAY

Campbeltown to Inverness 234 miles


Currently I have three videos covering the sections from Fort William to Inverness and Oban to Fort William (incuding the tricky bit between Ballachulish and Fort William).

Soon we'll publish the video to the southern section from Campbeltown to Oban.

Then we'll make one video which covers the entire route.

LOCH SHIEL GRAVEL

West highlands


This route passes my house and is becoming hugely popular, judging by the amount of cyclists I see tackling it.

Is it the best?  I'm sure I could argue there are equally good rides elsewhere, particularly on Mull.

That said, this one is a classic.
