Another great road packed with bends. In this area you can go wrong for great roads (as long as you avoid the main A9). Well worth riding. have to agree with the above - worth stopping to take in the view at the laggan dam.

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.
