Very bike friendly (MTB recommended). 1st day to Ft Augustus can be done on hybrid or tourer but day 2 to Inverness is the fun day and would fecommend a mountain bike. Loads of climbing rewarded by fantastic descents,

Did a small section of this over the weekend, the whole thing would take about a week to do. Very good views and a nice steady route to follow. Make sure you bring the right clothing and equipment with you and it is very enjoyable.

we found the beginning less interesting, as the scenery didn't change so much, but after ascending after Fort Augustus, we had wonderful views of Loch Ness, and even Ben Nevis. I hate uphill, but it was all worth it. we were blessed with great weather.
