I did this event in 2016 and again in 2017. Its a stunning ride, the hill is a brute but its a great feeling to get to the top. As you near the top you will hear the piper welcoming riders to the end of the climb. Its an awesome sound! Hope you enjoy it. Ive signed up for the Etape Caledonia instead this year but expect to do the Loch Ness run again sometime.
