Start of the climb by riding up and into the hairpins from A827 on Braes of Taymouth Road.
The climb begins at the northeastern tip of Loch Tay in Kenmore in the Scottish Highlands.
Kenmore Hill rises up out of the picturesque lakeside village on Kenmore. Our route passes through a series of very upscale homes in the opening miles. Here the road is steep and narrow, and the turns are very sharp. Thick foliage blocks most views of the loch below, but there are a few brief viewpoints on the route up where Loch Tay can be seen. Halfway up, you’ll leave the treeline behind and the road straightens out to the finishing point. There will likely be a few sightseers sharing the road with you out here, but everyone I encountered drove slow and passed kindly.
Hairpins at the start - 2/10’s of a mile at 1.3%.
