A699 : Kelso - Selkirk

South Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe
November 5, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Most types of corners available for your enjoyment. Good left/right cambered uphill combination near the start and finishes with a great combination of downhill, ever tightening series of bends, Watch out for the wooded section where the final bend is a sharp left 'nip' downhill with a road grate on the apex. Leave time to have a breakfast at Miss Ellies Cafe at the end.

A708 : Selkirk - Moffat

South Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe

A really mixed route that doesn't let your concentration waver for a moment. West to east has the best views but prefer to do it from Selkirk to Moffat. Travelling from Carlisle you arrive in Selkirk ready for a bite to eat at Miss Ellie's (on the left just as you enter Selkirk) then suitably filled head through the town till you see the sign for Moffat and take that. The beginning and end of the route is a mixed bag of tight twists and turns through hilly countryside and some gravelly surfaces with the good scenery and a bacon roll stop at St Mary's Loch slap bang in the middle. Of the run not the loch that is! I've done it a few times on training runs and it was either wet or snowing, then again it was winter time. Looking forward to doing this road in the summer.

A93 : Blairgowrie - Ballater (Glenshee and Royal deeside)

Great biking road which takes you from Blairgowrie over Glenshee and into Royal Deeside. Braemar is a good stopping off point en route. For those who don't want to return via the same route (I think the return journey is even better), the B976/B974 road from Ballater to Fettercairn can be taken which will take you back to Blairgowrie via Kirriemuir.

A9 / A99 : Inverness - John o'Groats

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe

A fantastic stretch of road to test every riders skill level. Tight hairpins, fast sweepers, Off camber bends, long straights, this road has it all. Scenery is superb as you twist and turn along this coastal route. A worthwhile 'detour' is via Bonar Bridge from Alness. This was the original route until the Dornoch bridge was constructed.

A87 : Invergarry - Kyle of Lochalsh

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe

Fantastic ride into the Highlands that really shows the best side of biking in Scotland. A great selection of corners, brilliant landscape and some wonderful nature. There can be some animals near the road, but visibility is mostly very open, so they pose little threat. There was no Police presence at all when I was last there, but this may have changed as I saw this road mentioned in a major UK motorbike magazine article recently.

Lots of nice straights with a few nice corners thrown in. A nice high speed run, not much in the way of police presence normally, but be aware that there may be the occassional speed trap
