Mark reports " We cycled up to the lift station at Glenshee in the morning and then a fearsome ride to Lecht Ski station in the afternoon. Weather fantastic and scenery incredible'
This is what the company say about day 8 :This is without doubt one of the toughest days of the tour with a number of difficult climbs to conquer. After crossing the River Tay a lovely ride takes you onto Blairgowrie and Glen Shee. A notable climb up to the ski resorts at Glenshee is followed by a long descent to Braemar. Another tough climb at the Lecht provides a challenge although the scenery is stunning and if the weather is good we will have a great day.
Day 9 - 92 miles, Granton-on-way to Lairg. An easier day !!! is in store as we continue through Inverness. A lovely ride alongside the Beauly Firth takes you through the Muir of Ord and onto Dingwall. As we leave the towns and cities behind, pushing into the county of Sutherland in the remote north.
