A815 : Gourock - Strachur (Scenic route into West Highlands, Scotland)

Central Scotland and Arra... > United Kingdom > Europe
June 1, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.8

For those of you touring Western Scotland and wishing to by-pass Glasgow and start the scenery show as early as possible: Take the Gourock/Dunoon Ferry from Gourock (just before Greenock on the A78 coast road) Ferries run every hour and it's a twenty minute crossing. Once on the other side of the water carry on northbound. The roads are quieter and even more beautiful than those upto there. Take the A815, which runs along the banks of Loch Eck to a T junction on the banks of Loch Fyne. Turn right, northbound, to another T junction on the A83. Turning right will take you to Loch Lomond (and the tourist traffic) Turning left will carry on around Loch Fyne into Inveraray. If you want to head north, take the A819, which is a narrow right turning just into Inveraray and takes you through Glen Aray, along Loch Awe, to a T junction on the A85, halfway between Tyndrum (for GlenCoe) and Oban (for the coast road). Have fun!


B1508 : Colchester - Sudbury

Lovely roller coaster of a road, especially after West Bergholt. The good bit starts with a long, long straight followed by the forementioned roller-coaster. One or two villages with 30mph limits and Bures itself (follow your nose through the town, left after the bridge). Have been told by the locals to be careful of gravel on corners, washed down after heavy rain.

Short but sweet. Tight and twisty run alongside the river Crouch. 'The Cabin Dairy', a biker friendly cafe in the area.
