The High Route to Glen Lyon

Forgot to take my Garmin……however I can certainly pick the days, what a beautiful ride. Cycled on quiet roads almost all day along sun dappled lanes with the more open areas showing the superb Highland scenery.  Refreshments at Aberfeldy, Killin and Bridge of Balgie.  Loads of red squirrels sadly some of them squashed.  The high road between Glen Lochy & Glen Lyon has deteriorated a lot in the 15 years since I last cycled this road and is only just possible on a road bike. Glen Lyon with a tail wind is a must do for any road cyclist, just awesome.  Felt great all the way, set off planning 60-80 but is was a good day, I felt good and had my friend Neil Mackenzie been alive he would have told me to go for the 100, so I did.
