For anyone riding north on the A838 to Durness, dont stop there - carry right on around the North coast. This is a delight that, road wise, comes in sections, rather than the whole, but the scenery is spectacular.
A really fine bit of riding shortly after Durness around Loch Enboll (wide single track but quick enough).
Turn right at Kyle of Tongue (dont cross the bridge) for a another beautiful stretch (Ben Hope) around the south end of the Kyle and up into the village of Tongue.
Tongue to Bettyhill is another wide single track, but just past Bettyhill the road widens to 2 lanes and is simply a stunning blast of very fast sweepers until Armadale.
