23.5 miles. The Sma Glen (on the A822 section) is just a magical place ... stunning scenery. The road itself is a hoot with lots and lots of bends .. plenty of decent straights too. This is a favourite route for local bikers.
If you havn't done it. i can't describe it.
Great biking road which takes you from Blairgowrie over Glenshee and into Royal Deeside. Braemar is a good stopping off point en route. For those who don't want to return via the same route (I think the return journey is even better), the B976/B974 road from Ballater to Fettercairn can be taken which will take you back to Blairgowrie via Kirriemuir.
Beautiful Scottish scenary, great selection of sweepers and climbs and descents. Recommended.
Newtonmore to Laggan section - mixture of all types of corners, needs lot of concentration.
Laggan to Spean Bridge - lovely scenery, lots of fast corners and straight section.
Beware of Johnny Foreigner thought in the summer months. He is quite liable to be all over the road and stopping suddenly to take in the views.
Well worth a stop at Laggan Dam.
A nice pleasant route, nice scenery, & nice corners, a popular tourist route in summer, an alternative route to the north.
Nice selection of sweepers from Doune, Doune is quite a nice place in itself.
There are some really good fast sweepers on this route, it was formerly an MoD road that was later opened to traffic. Great fun but watch out for small animals
Scenery is picture postcard and the best aspect of the route for me, although there are a few straights and a number of nice corners. Road condition is generally pretty good but this can be a busy road, including caravans, being directly on the path to Fort William and other northern delights. I've only seen a minimal police presence myself but have been warned that there are unmarked cars on regular patrol.
Fantastic ride into the Highlands that really shows the best side of biking in Scotland. A great selection of corners, brilliant landscape and some wonderful nature. There can be some animals near the road, but visibility is mostly very open, so they pose little threat. There was no Police presence at all when I was last there, but this may have changed as I saw this road mentioned in a major UK motorbike magazine article recently.
This only a 6 mile stretch of road but if you are on the A830 Fort William to Mallaig make sure you turn off at Arisaig and take this wonderful 6 mile diversion. This used to be the original road before the A830 was built and it snakes along the coast past some fabulous sandy beaches and coves. Make sure you stop at the wee car park at Glenancross and wander down to the Camusdarach beach.
This road wasn't busy when I rode it and think that's it's normally so. It was a former main road so has a good construction. Some really good corners.
A selection of really good corners in some great scenario. Some of the route runs alongside an old Steam Railway line which is still in use and check out the bridge over Loch Creran. Recommended.
A short but fun blast down a quiet well surfaced road, with some good corners. Well worth doing if yuor in the area.
