This route takes you through some of the most scenic places in the area. The road taking you along loch Avich is extremly remote and you are more likely to meet deer than cars.

Glen Lonan is stunning
The route from Taynult to the A 816 at Kilmelford is hard work but worthwhile as it is very scenic.
From Kimelford to the turn off at the eastern end of Loch Creran is no place for anyone other than very experienced road cyclists. It's the main road for Argyll. Timber lorries, tankers, coaches, low loaders with boats on, holiday traffic caravans. Scary and dangerous at the wrong times. Shouldn't be a cycle route at all.
