Amersham to: A43
Get off the M40 at Beaconsfield and head this way for a much more entertaining route from here to Northampton. Big sweepers, tight bits and a the odd few roundabouts connected by short straights. Great fun on the 'blade and almost as much of a laugh in the Focus....
Halton/Aylesbury to: M25 Junction (Near Hemel Hempstead)
For a fast blast down 11 miles of dual carrage way with some nice long sweepers this road is a hoot. There are only 3 or 4 juntions on the whole stretch, with a handy drive-in McDonalds placed on 2nd or 3rd one (coming from Aylesbury).
Creagan to: Creagan
The A828 used to take a detour all the way around Loch Creran until a bridge was built on the coast. This has left a six mile oxbow of old A-road abandoned with only one house on it and virtually no traffic whatsoever. And it is the most amazing bit of road, hugging the loch it is a never ending series of bends, sweepers, switch backs and blind rises. Going north, pass over the new bridge and keep your eyes open for a small sign saying local traffic only. The is the entrance to the Creaganring. Have fun.
Tain to: Thurso
Fast road (most 100+) with lots of different corners, off camber, slow tight and wide sweepers. From Latheron Wheel to Thurso is seriously quick, but a bit bumpy, get used to the front wheel hoisting crossed up!. Watch your speed in the little towns. No cameras but the chance of unmarked cars, red saab 9000, silver omega and a dark volvo. Great roads to the west or just go back down again. each way is about 80 miles.
