345 Miles Start Langholm - End Langholm

TWith miles of coastline, hills, moor land and the Galloway Forest Park, the area has beautiful unspoilt scenery to suit all tastes. The roads are well maintained and mainly fluent and sporty although they turn tight and twisty as they climb past the peaks of Broad Law and Roan Fell as the route crosses the Southern Uplands and Galloway Forest respectively. There is also a nice run alongside the River Tweed before entering the historic border town of Kelso where the BMF show is held in July.
