OK, so this is my first review of a road, since I joined over a year ago. Ive ridden quite a few roads in Europe, and the UK, but this small circular loop has to be the best road that I have ever taken a bike around. The corners are orgasmic, with so many of them on such a short stretch of road that by the time you reach the end, you need a breather. Sit down on the benches opposite the Glenco Mountain Rescue Centre and absorb the views. Then just do it again!
The tarmac is superb, visibility good generally but with quite a few blind corners to keep your concentration up. As the road doesnt really go anywhere, there is virtually no traffic on it. The odd car that is fairly easy to pass. Its quite technical, but with some long sweeping curves too.
Have never seen the police on it.
Stop on the hightest point in one of the laybys and you do get the most beautiful view of Loch Leven.
Hit this road on a dry, warm day, and believe me, its worth going back to Scotland just to ride this one road. Love it.
