Glenurquhart to Kinlochewe is about 59 miles.
Starting from Glenurquhart the bikes had been safely parked over night ready for our next trip so strait after a great breakfast we set out first to Cannich a village at the southern end of Strathglass, in the Highlands about 26 miles west of the city of Inverness.
It is at the furthest point of the A831 that loops around the Aird from Beauly to Drumnadrochit, follow the route to Beauly, past the Farrar and Glass rivers, and at the gateway to the remote and spectacular glens of Affric, Cannich and Strathfarrar, to the village of Beauly offering a range of excellent and varied shops, eating places, hotels and guest houses, and all just a 20 minute drive from Inverness.
The River Beauly is a renowned salmon river, but also provides some of the gentler walks around the village. If it's trout fishing.
the origins of the village date back to the founding of the Priory in the early 13th Century, Mary Queen of Scots is said to have visited Beauly in 1564 and stayed overnight.
It is now a ruin, but the elm tree which stands at the entrance to the graveyard, at eight hundred years old, is believed to be the oldest elm tree in Europe.
