|Description:||Aberdeen to Ardnamurchan Point. Stops in Aboyne, Tomintoul. Kingussie, Fort Augustus, Fort William, Strontian. Return by pre-booked taxi from the lighthouse to FW. Or vary to suit yourself.
First day starts at the lighthouse at Girdle Ness and through Aberdeen to pick up the former Deeside railway, then head into the hills and loop to Aboyne. Day 2 short bit on railway then steep climb into wilds below Morven, Glen Gairn and wild pass Loch Builg to Tomintoul. Day 3 skirts the Caingorms to Speyside, almost no tarmac all day. Day 4 uses the Wade road to Etteridge (Beware! track from Etteridge covered in marbles), then heads to the Correyairack pass and huge descent. Day 5 doddles down Great Glen. Day 6 ferry across loch, wee road, wild Glen Shiel and stiff road climb to Strontian. Day 7 wee road, then link paths along coast - some not easy to find or ride but worth it for fantastic views.
We did it with Sleeper to Aberdeen and back from FW.
