Tour of Mull

Argyll/Bute (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
January 2, 2013 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

A cracking route around Mull. Take the ferry from Oban to Craignure or go across at Lochaline to Fishnish. Head up to Tobermory (pubs and cafes here) then cut across to Dervaig and take the Achleck road up and over to Ulva ferry (used during the Mull Rally) and that should wake you up, steep with hairpin bends !!
Follow the coast road all the way round Loch na Keal and over into Loch Scidain. Great views out past Inch Kenneth and on a good day you can see Staffa.
You can hang a left and head out through Bunessan to Fionnphort and then back or just turn left and follow the road back to Craignure through Glen More. Watch out for loose gravel, sheep and tourist buses on this leg.
A great day out if the weathers good


GlenOrchy/Glencoe/Loch Linnhe loop

Argyll/Bute (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
January 2, 2013 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

A Nice wee loop incorporating some fast roads, spectacular scenery and some nice bends in places.
Watch out for the mobile cameras anywhere between Glen Orchy and Ballachullish.
Good coffee stops at Glencoe Ski Centre and Castle Stalker Cafe at Appin.
Nice run through Glen Orchy Glen following the river Orchy (gets very midgy in the summer !) several nice waterfalls along the way.
Alternative route to Tyndrum (stop at the Green Welly, plenty of bikes stop here) and then back along the A82 towards Glencoe.
