Cycling Route Suggestions
My wife and I will by cycling Scotland in August for a couple of weeks. Then off to Ireland for 2 more weeks. I have a tentative itinerary to start, but I am having a tough time using the Scottish Rail website.
Currently - Glasgow - Stirling -Kinross - St Andrews - Dundee - Arbroath - Stonehaven -Aberdeen.
We eventually need to end up at Stranraer to catch a ferry. We would like to see parts of Isle of Skye and Lewis Isle.
Can we get a train west to see these islands? If we do succeed getting to the west coast, do we have to back track with the train to get to Stranraer.
For the Scottish experts. Regarding my planned route. Any suggestions to improve it? Remove one of the towns listed with something else? Or any suggestions in general.
Any help much appreciated.
