Dingwall (Cromarty Firth) to Ullapool (Loch Broom)I was thinking ......... to avoid the big cities
Unless things have changed dramatically (and very recently) the Glasgow queen street to Fort William train splits in two at Lower Tyndrum and one half for to Oban and the other to Fort William. Your only issue is making sure you and your bike are in the correct half!The only thing with oban is getting there , I'd need to drive , ideally I'd want good train links ( is there even a station in oban
That's the kinda thing,though it seems from Ayr it's a bit shorter (120),I guess the cycle track meanders a bit and is a bit longer, I'd imagine the roads ( in general) would be quieter given most of it is down peebles/lanark wayBelow is quote from Brandane in previous post.
* Although it actually encroaches over the border to finish at Berwick upon Tweed; purely for ease of train access!
I have come up with this route, which I plan to do over 3 days sometime in 2015. It starts in Largs, Ayrshire, and then heads east using as few main roads as possible it crosses to the east coast via Dalry, Stewarton, Fenwick, Eaglesham, Strathaven, Lanark, Carstairs, Biggar, and Peebles. From there it mainly follows the established Tweed Valley Cycle Route through Melrose, Kelso, and Coldstream, to Berwick upon Tweed.
160 miles with the odd climb or two.
