    Part 2...
    1/4 mile up this road you will find the Clachaig Inn a popular place for hill walkers and mountaineers..a hidden gem!

    Turned off the A82 onto my favourite road the A86 it is always quiet as most people either stay on the A82 up to Inverness or they are on the A9 up north to but this road connects the A9 to the A82 and it seems it's only there for motorcyclists to have fun!!
    P1020032_edited-1.jpg

    Lots and Lots of sweeping bends ..and you don't need to reduce your speed! P1020033_edited-1.jpg

    It has the odd bit of straight road!
    P1020034_edited-1.jpg

    But not for long!!

    P1020035_edited-1.jpg
    I really cant recommend this road enough, i passed about 6 cars coming the other direction on the 30 mile or so stretch
    and there were no cars going my direction!

    I was up that way on Wednesday too Dougie, I had a coffee at 11.00 am at the Green Welly while I pondered which road to take next. Decided on the A85 to Oban and had fish & chips while sat looking out onto the bay, then down the coast to Lochgilphead on the A816 (my new fav road) - Inverary - Arrochar - Loch Lomond then home. 301 miles in wall to wall sunshine....does it get any better :cool:

    Gary that was the route we took when i was out with Lou and my mate,brilliant roads right enough :) i bet the view down the rest and be thankful looked great:) if only we could get weather like that every week. The Glencoe road was quiet and i was hoping the road to fort William would be too as it is a fantastic road, but it wasn't :(, i think I've only ever been on it a couple of times when it hasn't been busy.i must have just missed you as i think i was at the green welly about 10.30 ish
    We will have to get another run again, midweek does seem the best time to avoid the traffic :)

    Yes it was gorgeous out there yesterday Dougie.... the Arrochar Alps especially so.

    The stretch between Ballachulish up to Fort Bill is always busy isn't it, i've never had it to myself to enjoy the twisties :(

    Midweek runs are all i'm doing from now on.... I was out last Saturday up the East coast of Fife and it was a bloody nightmare.... folks dawdling about at 24mph looking at scenery holding up the whole line of traffic, why are they not fined £100 and given 3 points !!... it's every bit if not more dangerous than speeding with every bugger trying dodgy overtakes to get past.

    Anyway.... yes give me a shout if you're out and about through the week :)
