Iam considering a long distance route from Iona to Lindisfarne in May.

Two broad options being considered:

1) From oban go via crainlarich and Loch Lomond then from Glasgow hook up with the Clyde - Forth route and then route 1 and head to Iona from Melrose.

2) From Oban head south via habart (west) and ferry to arran and the addrossan(?). Then head east towards peebles, melrose and Iona.
Probably use the tweed cycleway.

There are route on this site heading south from Oban and for Arran. I need ideas from Addrossan(spelling?) ferry heading east..

Anyone who knows Ayrshire and Lanarkshire and can suggest potential cycle friendly routes in the area heading east.

Thanks

Just to edit some typo's:

On the 2nd option.

Iona > Mull > Oban > Claonaig > Arran -Brodrick > Ardrossan > Melrose
Lindisfarne

From Ardrossan the general aim is to head to Melrose and on to Lindisfarne via cycle friendly routes avoiding built up areas.

Any advice welcome..

Hi Rob,

Did you do this? I'm considering the same route during summer 2009. Have you any advice on this?

Cheers,

Rob and/or Ady,

Did either one of you make this trek? I'm considering something similar for the summer of 2020, and I could really use some help with figuring out route and accommodations.
