A702

Carronbridge to: Elvanfoot

Found this by accident last summer. Take A76 North from Dumfries and pick up the A702 at Carronbridge heading North East to Elvanfoot. Narrow, swinging and sweeping, good cross views. Then take the B7040 to Leadhills, very narrow, very switchback, very twisty and sheep ridden, and finally the B797 through Wanlochead (highest village in Scotland) more of the same before joining A76 again. Perhaps not best enjoyed on anything less than a large trailie or supermoto, but very challenging. Finally if Wendy Cunningham sees this, try my e mail again, your return address didn't work.


A837

Bonar Bridge to: Lochinver

The A837 is an A road which is single track with passing places - it could only be Scotland! Narrow, excellent twisties and a superb view of Suilven for miles and miles. Stop at Lochinver, chips or afternoon tea for the more civilised and prepare yourself for the next bit - the road to Ullapool via Stac Pollaidh. Just unbelievable. At times you can get up to a terrifying 50 mph - briefly. The twistiest road in the world. The scenery is awsome - lunar landscapes and primroses which you can admire closely when you run out of road. And then the mountains. Stop and climb Stac Pollaidh - it's worth it. Ride this road or die unfulfilled.


A819

Inverary to: Inverary

Approach to Inverary from A82/A83 from Glasgow is entertaining and gorgeous but the true twisty stuff is to come...This is a circular route from Inverary up to Oban and back. Either go via Lochgilphead on the A83 (awesome twisty and spectacular views of Loch Fyne) or the other way on the A819/A85 to Oban which is as good with Loch Awe appearing at what seems like odd times thru the trees. Once you get to Oban there are plenty of places to stop and fuel you and your machine before taking the route back. Time of year is important as mid winter when I did it was well hairy! And summer finds acres of tourists in caravans and coaches.


A82

Ballock to: Lochgilphead

Ok.......first off I only ride a FZR400RR so this would be even better on a 'real' bike! =) Starting at Ballock its a 60mph road with plenty of cars to overtake ( and scare ) on the edge of Loch Lomand.........I'd recommend a quick detoir into Luss (where Take the High road is filmed!)......nothing beats firing up the small main street in a first gear wheelie to piss off all the old biddies!
