Cycling distances and terrain
It is about 35 miles from Kildonan to Bettyhill. The road is single-track with passing places and has very low traffic volumes. The roads are mainly flat with the gentlest of inclines, although there is a steep climb on the final approach into Bettyhill. These roads are perfect for cycling.
Things to see and do
This is about the landscapes, the lochs and tranquility. The things that Sutherland does best. There are no castles, shops or cafes. You can follow the Strathnaver Trail on the road between Syre and Bettyhill, which has interpretive panels at notable archaeological sites.
