Duke’s Pass is a seven-mile, twisting pass that runs between Aberfoyle and Brig o’Turk. The road climbs quickly and is incredibly popular with motorcyclists for its lush country views and meandering curves.

Out of Aberfoyle

Leaving Aberfoyle on the A821 you immediately get a sense of what’s in store with a yawning bend that leads out of the village and up the pass, gaining in altitude all the time. Choose a road position for maximum visibility as you navigate yet more turns.

Up and Over

The road flattens slightly at Loch Achray but becomes no less twisty as it traverses around three sides of the still water though bracken-lined hillside. Continue on, passing through forests until you reach the peaceful Brig o’Turk hamlet.
