ARBROATH to: MONTROSE
12 MILES OF SMOOOOTH TARMAC WITH LONG FAST SWEEPING CORNERS, UPHILL AND DOWNHILL OPEN BENDS AND A NICE CHICANE AND BEST OF ALL NO SPEED CAMERAS, ENJOY
Fort William to: Ballachulish-Oban
OK, I do like the Cat and Fiddle, but lets get this straight, there is no road on earth, even Route 1 in the US, that comes close to the stretch from Ballachulish to Oban. Twisty? You get sweaty just bimbling along, there are virtually NO straights at all on this road, yet there is also next to no traffic most of the time. The section from Fort William is absolutely fabulous if you enjoy high speed cornering, er, very high speed, like close to the top end of a modern sportbike, so I am told, of course...
After Ballachulish, tighten up those sliders and drop your shoulders and bend your arms and get ready for a workout...some really grippy surfaces (tho some are really, really shite in the damp), interesting blind corners, great crests for wheelying - normally crossed up, making you feel a right hero, even though it just sort of happens anyway...
There is one section, and I can't remember exactly where, along the coast, where the road goes out into the sea almost, in little penisulas which are made up of 230 degrees corners (yes, they DO come back on themselves) of a constant radius, taken at a reasonable (above 60) pace. There are about 8 of these all in a row on FLAT grippy tarmac, try not to faint with pleasure...you need spare sliders for the return journey, or even half-way through...

Penrith to: Alston
Do not belive the bit about no police, at a weekend the road crawls with the old bill,sneaking up on you and hidding around corners, and they ain't looking at the scenery. The road is a good un no doubt, but if you tire of it ,then keep on going onto the A689 from Alston to Brampton, not quite as good but well worth the ride with quite a few fast twisty bits, Halton Lea Gate has a 30 speed limit, apart from that it is yaahoo all the way.
