I lived 10 minutes away from this route. (why did I move?)
When I returned to bikes after 34 years away this route helped me gain confidence very quickly.
I was out on it nearly every night in the summer.
My preferred direction is from Callander to Aberfoyle.
If you can, the best time to use it is when the tourists are in having their tea! About 6-8pm, and you may get the road dead quiet.
Outside of that you can get ridiculously big coaches on it and you might as well stop for a while. Overtaking them requires mighty cojones unless your at the Loch Venachar section!
If you\'re with mates its a good idea to post somebody at the best bends to get pics.
Get on it in a dry summer night and you\'ll want to do it over and over again, ;-)
