Route Overview:

Distance (Miles): 135

Useful Information:

Summary: The Highlands - Scotland
Route Description:

Where does it start? Crocketford

Where does it end? Inveraray 

How long is it? 135 miles 

 

Why is it great? 

It takes you from the borders of Scotland all the way up to Inveraray – the self-titled gateway to the Highlands – without having to traipse through the Glasgow/Edinburgh corridor.

 

What do I need to know? 

The route starts in the village of Crocketford, just to the west of Dumfries, heads up to Ayr on the A712 and A713, before following the A78 around to Greenock to the west of Port Glasgow, where you take a short ferry across to Dunoon. From here you can ride the main A815 alongside Loch Eck, then around the stunning Loch Fyne to Inveraray. The ferry to Dunoon is operated by Western Ferries, with a 20minute crossing and ferries leaving every 15 minutes at peak times. The cost is £4.50 for the bike, and another £4.50 per passenger; you can pay on deck with card or cash. Once across, and if you have the time, a worthwhile deviation is to take the B836 just out of Dunoon, in the direction of Clachan of Glendaruel, where you’ll also find a great campsite. This road is narrow and freshly laid, with passing places and well worth the effort. From there it’s a simple run around Loch Fyne to Inveraray, with several hotels offering good food and accommodation.
