No it isn't but just don't underestimate the f*ckwittery of your average tourist up there. The road gets very narrow in places and many of them don't appreciate how to use passing places, will squeeze you out, pass dangerously close, too fast etc and I personally would rather not take the risk. I have taken the train from Lochailort to Fort William in the past to avoid riding on that road and I am glad I did. I have ridden on it in the past and it wasn't pleasant.samid said:I'd rather not take trains... but thanks for the info. That unpleasant part you mention - if I understand correctly, it's only about 15 miles or so right? Not too long I mean.
