This is a spectacular place to ride a bike, with a considerable drop down the hillside on your right for a good part of the route.
On the Isle of Skye, head north out of Portree on the A855 to Brogaig. At Brogaig turn left onto the road that heads over the hills to Uig. After a couple of hairpins in the road, you'll reach the crest where there is a large layby where you can park. The trail heads north from here.
You'll be sharing the path with walkers, but as the route is quite technical, you'll not be going at such a high speed so you won't be surprising anyone.
There's a cafe in the village at Brogaig, and sometimes a snack van at the top of the hill where you park. If this car park is full, there is another car park half a mile back down the road you'll have driven up.
