Where to Ride Road

20 Great British Road Rides

This route takes you out of the Highland city up past Leys Castle and across Drumossie Muir picking up quiet back roads past Loch Mhor around Farigaig Forest. The route then descends next to the River Foyers past the Falls of Foyers and down to the shores of the famous Loch Ness. Then follow the shoreline of the loch right the way back into Inverness.

There are spectacular views across the loch with ample opportunity to stop and savour them. The road back to Inverness lies in the shade for the first half of the day and temperatures can be quite cool down by the water’s edge, particularly during winter months. When you arrive back in Inverness simply retrace your steps back into the city centre and to the railway station.
