A816 : Oban - Lochgilphead

Argyll/Bute (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
March 5, 2006 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

This route has everything, Be very carefull leaving Oban as the main street has some seriously sunken manholes and bodged road repairs, once in the national speed limit the road is largely superb. Within 20 minutes you will have negotiated some spectacular hairpins as you climb up the hilly coastal road. Pegs and panniers can be scraped on some of the corners. The road changes from tight and twisty to wide open stretches where you can see four bends ahead, then quickly back to reality with a series of sharp bends. Some hard down hill braking required on some bits but it's a fantastic road and in places will challenge your road reading skills. As you approach Lochgilphead there are some very long straights with good visibility for one last stretch of the bikes legs. Personally, it's best done north to south.

Quite bumpy in bits but good sweeping corners, good jump after mid section.
