like most people i ll be there for the first two days.. i dont think a route is available yet but generally follows much the same plot. camping i'd pre book at the nevis site ( they have an area specifically for bikers.. great facilities showers etc.) no need to book if you want to chance it as there is loads of space but if you want to be sure.. and great views of ben nevis and the ramblers strolling up and down all day and night

IMHO the start is better than the end if you've only a couple of days to spare...Sunday weigh in followed by Monday at Leanachen in the morning and Lagnaha (Kentallen) in the afternoon is brill. Best day for me has always been "road race day" on Friday and the sections are all (fairly) close to the road. Camping at Ben Nevis is top notch and am always amazed how many silly f***kers climb at night!
