Scotland NCN route news

Route 7 over the Drumochter Pass

Sustrans is constantly working to maintain, upgrade and develop the National Cycle Network (NCN). Here are some of the latest or current more major developments in Scotland. Also see the page: Route Closures and Diversions (and keep an eye on our Twitter account). 

Route 78 - The Caledonia Way - (September 2016) - Two short but difficult gaps remain in the route (described in the Oban to Fort William section). Sustrans Scotland is continuing to work on ideas to improve the situation here. Signage has recently been reviewed for the whole of the route between Oban and Inverness.

Route 74 - (September 2016) -  The final 5km main gap in the route, from Lesmahagow to Happendon, has been completed. Two very short gaps remain to be resolved. Sustrans is continuing to work towards these being completed (in the next 12 months). Sustrans is currently surveying the condition of signage for the whole of this route.

Route 780 - The Hebridean Way cycle route was  launched in 2015. This is a 150 mile, on-road, cycling odyssey up the length of the Outer Hebrides on the Atlantic edge of Scotland. The route was developed by the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) and Scottish Natural Heritage.
