This road is a dream if you are one of the clowns that want to go everywhere flat out (which you can't do because the locals travel at such low speeds). If however you are wanting the twists and turns better suited to a big adventure bike, then avoid at all costs! At the time of writing (April 2011) the roads were in a shocking condition. This, combined with the speed limit of 20 mph (although everybody rightly travels 10 mph below this) through the picturesque villages, ferry price (return trip Â£35) and the cost of fuel (Â£1.45) made it an expensive and fairly dull trip!
very nice road following the coast with some cool views. can get very busy in summer with caravans but there are plenty of overtaking areas.
