Guidebook to cycle touring in northern Scotland. A 528-mile circuit
(starting and finishing in Inverness) is described, passing through the
ancient counties and districts of Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness,
Easter Ross and the Black Isle. Boasting stunning scenery and rich
historical interest, the route – which can be comfortably completed in a
fortnight – makes for a perfect two-week touring holiday.
Cyclists will be treated to mile upon mile of unspoilt wilderness with a
varied landscape of craggy mountains, verdant glens, rolling open peat
moorland dotted with lochs, and wild rugged coastlines. And if the scenery
isn't enough, there's always the many distilleries and micro-breweries on
or near the route guaranteed to entice.
Featuring clear and concise route description, together with 1:150,000
mapping, gradient profiles, suggested schedules and invaluable practical
information, this guidebook provides all the information needed to plan and
execute a terrific cycle tour.
