Cycling version of Cape Wrath trail

This looks similar to what I had in my mind of combining the Pennine Way with the Scottish National Trail (or Cape Wrath Trail). If I can see a map of the route, I may have a go at some of that.

If you Google Great North Trail there is a full map of the route.

A few years ago, after walking the Fisherfield Munros, I stayed at the bothy at Carnmore (not the most luxurious but it was a very stormy night so it seemed preferable to my little tent). At about 2.30am a guy arrived on a single speed bike and explained he was doing the HT550. It was a terrible night and so he decided to give himself the luxury of a “long” lie in - he left at 7am! The next morning he was berating himself slightly for doing so, despite the weather. To my astonishment, he said he’d been overtaken in the night and dropped from 2nd to 3rd in the race. It was mad!

As for Cape Wrath - 'Cycling' magazine used to run something called the Cape Wrath Fellowship - you got a badge if you'd ridden there.
