New Ballachulish Cycleway

This 60 mile ride gave me a great work out yesterday.

Thanks to the new cycleway past Ballachulish, I was only on the busy A82 for 2 miles in either direction, between Corran and North Ballachulish.

My loop picks up the cycleway at Glencoe village and travels alongside the A82 all the way to the Ballachulish bridge. The rest of the time, the ride is on relatively quiet roads which are a joy to cycle, the views being so spectacular.

The cycleway is part of a Sustrans route which swings south, currently going to Kentallen, but which in time should run all the way between Fort William and Oban.

That will make a huge difference to riding around here, especially for the hundreds of cycle tourists who take their life in their panniers each year and ride through Glen Coe and the Great Glen.
