Re: Gradient of roads

Thanks everyone, think direction has been decided. Overall walking distance and ascent looks like its same as Fisherfields with added walk out so hopeful my legs stand up to it.

will need to start in the dark so my cycle back to car is still in daylight.

Gradient of roads

Hi,

Had a quick look online to see if there was a easy way to work it out but cant see anything.

Looking at doing the Fannichs [9], problem will be the 10 mile cycle back to car.

Want to know what the easiest cycle will be, East to West or West to East. :D

This. 👆🏻



2nd that, a bridge structure [fence] that you can use to secure the bike as well. Definitely a easier cycle going west.

Re: An early start for the Mullardoch circuit

Planning this round on 05th June with a boat to far end of Loch and return to car. Have you got a rough estimate of how much time this will cut off the route? It took me 2,5h from reaching the loch to the car park, so I would say about 1,5h, since you still need to get to the boat place, gear up an...

Re: South Glen Shiel Ridge..

Left bike at Cluanie and then drove to west end to start, cycling back to car after I came off hill. Would recommend going in that direction as you get the downhill gradient.

Camping Glenbrittle

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone had stayed at the campsite at Glenbrittle recently?

With it being on the shoreline are the midges normally a problem in the summer months.
Cant see it on website but does anyone know what time the cafe is open till?

If your doing Ben Lomond on Saturday or Sunday you will need to be up at crack of dawn to get a parking space at bottom of hill. It's very busy just now. Parking tickets being issued 2 weeks ago outside Roverdennan hotel.

Re: Derry Lodge Cycle

Thanks again for suggestions, looks like weather still looks reasonable for this weekend. Cant take bike now as bike rack does not fit onto new car so is now on foot. Hopefully midges die between now and Friday night. :wink:
