Nothing beats Harris IMO. (Not biased, or anything)

If you liked that then try Bowglass through to Meavaig. Similar outstanding scenery, but like most of my routes, a wee bit of hike a bike and the opportunity to get your feet wet.

Here’s the video of the main descent to Sron Ulladale itself:

Part of the return leg:

And some nice drone footage showing the scale of the thing a bit better than my photos can:

Wow what a way to bring in the new year!
Really great scenery and always love Harris and Lewis though my work was always coastal ;)
I suggest Macretro goes back to having an annual big weekend away like we used to to Skye, Torrindon etc and we all head over to Velofrogs neck of the woods. He has already got a great weekends riding for us in just a couple of posts.
For those without vehicles Brian and I could pick three and bikes up comfortably in the van in Inverness.
Just a thought as we barely do Baltic bawbags now let alone the big epics we used to.

Look forward to it Mr P.
Definitely up for a cycle and a catch up. Just let me know what your plans are and I will work around. If you need somewhere to stay, there's a room here.
