- Begins in:
- Fort Augustus, United Kingdom
- Created By:
- Stage 41 LEJOG ride. It would be much easier to stay on the A82 alongside Loch Ness but we felt like avoiding the traffic & crowds at all the Loch Ness Monster' attractions' and took this B road alternative. Huge 5 mile climb right from the start to over 1200 feet (the biggest climb on the entire trip) but then a superb downhill run into Inverness - and no traffic. Watch out for the cattle grid on the first big descent - it is made out of old railway lines and my son hit it at nearly 50 mph, which blew out his front tyre! Do not stop too long to admire the views either, or the dreaded 'Highland midges' will get you!
