Achiltibuie Lochinver Circular Route - Moderate - 70 Miles
This is a challenging cycle route, with stunning coastal scenery, that is on either single track or A roads. There are lots of ups and downs, and sheep, so it is not for the faint hearted.
The route goes from Achiltibuie via the coastal single track road to Lochinver, Drumbeg and Newton. It then heads south on the main road (A894) via Inchnadamph to Ledmore. At this point turn off onto the A835 to Drumrunie. It then returns to Achiltibuie on the single track road.
