Epic Rides in Scotland

A82 Glasgow to Inverness

This Epic Ride takes place once you leave Glasgow and head north towards the Highlands. On route you’ll pass sites made famous by movies like James Bond and Harry Potter…. and Scotland’s legendary Lochs.


Starting from Glasgow, this ride heads north to the capital of the Scottish highlands, Inverness.

The Ride

As of 2019, mostly asphalt with alot of single lanes and narrow roads. It’s a tourist hot spot in the summer months. With a lot of Camper-vans especially around Glen Coe.


Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park

With its proximity to Glasgow, Loch Lomond is surprisingly quiet. Since there is a wild camping ban in place during the summer months, it only makes for a good pit stop after leaving the city.

Glen Coe

Glen Coe is the crown jewel of valleys in Scotland. It is famous for the James Bond Scene in Skyfall and therefore can be very busy in the summer. I’d recommend camping at Kinghouse Hotel. It is free and you can use the showers etc. It has a great pub for food and drinks.

For those looking for the Skyfall Scene location. It is actually in Glen Etive. The road is a dead end and is equally amazing as the road through Glen Coe. The exact spot is here

A830 Road from Fort William to Mallaig (Ferry to Isle of Skye)

If your heading to the Isle of Skye, you’ll ride the A830 from Fort William. This is a worthy detour as you’ll pass some iconic sites.

Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness

Urquhart Castle sits on the famous Loch Ness. The castle is pretty much ruined but it is located right on the A83 and provides great views over the Loch.
