ROUTE

Starting in Edinburgh, Scotlands Capital, riders will have a neutralised start from our meeting point. Heading out and over the Forth Road Bridge and through Inverkeithing it is at this point riders are free to go off at their own pace.

Within the first two hundred miles riders will roll through St Andrews the home of golf before Dundee and in to the Cairngorms. After some challenging climbs and beautiful scenery of the national park they will progress to Inverness.

 

From Inverness hopefully riders will be heading in to the highlands in good shape as the real test starts. During the next 400 miles resources are much more spread out. Riders must be well prepared for this remote but most rewarding portion of the challenge. Only for the brave, those that make it round will be amongst some of the most amazing scenery and a sting in the tail. Bealach na ba is arguably one of the UK's toughest climbs reaching some impressive gradients. Fortunately there is a great pub to fuel up in Applecross before heading up and over!

Over the next 150 miles riders will get to sample Skye and Mull with 3 ferry crossings that will give riders much needed rest. The third and final ferry returns them to the mainland in to Oban.

The Trossachs hold the next challenge again with incredible landscapes and some solid climbs. Once riders have made their way through the National Park they will skirt Glasgow.

 

The final portion takes place within the Scottish Borders in the South but before riders really explore the Borders they will hit the most Southernly town of the race in Moffat. 

 

Finally making their way East to the coast, racers will tick over the 1000 mile marker close to Duns and towards the final stretch home to Edinburgh.
