The scenic ride from Glasgow to Inverary is one of the best-loved motorcycle route in Scotland. The route takes bikers alongside the picturesque shores of Loch Lomond and through the famous Rest and Be Thankful viewpoint.

Escaping the city

Although the journey starts in Scotland’s largest city, this two-hour Scottish motorcycle route offers splendid views of lochs, mountains and coastline and finishes in the beautiful town of Inverary, on the shores of Loch Fyne. After leaving Glasgow, enjoy an uninterrupted 17-mile stretch along the western shore of Loch Lomond before turning left at Tarbet into Trossachs mountain scenery.
