Program

On a clear day, prepare to see six countries from the mull! From maol in Gaelic, a rounded hill, summit or mountain bare of trees. The Mull of Galloway is all of these but also beautiful and remote too. You will begin at the lighthouse, with the sea at your right shoulder. It will stay there for the next 200 miles until you reach the border with England at Gretna Green.

For a moment, you will feel like you are the most southerly person in Scotland. You will get on the bike, and then you will dive down, with a short climb with the road curving as it falls between East and West Tarbet. There is a sheer drop from cliffs to your left. Off to your right, the bay curves away to a pencil thin line of sandy bays lined out to the horizon.

Things are slow here, history present, more touchable. Ancient stones, castles, and abbeys and yet just enough pubs, tea rooms, and cafes in the 30 or more small towns and villages that lie ahead to make the ride enjoyable. With varied terrain from the rugged and remote and a feel like Cornwall to rolling and pastoral, there is always something round the next bend.

You will have open views to Ireland, the Isles of Man, and later, the mountains of the Lake District. Take your time and explore golden beaches and the hidden coves of Viking raids, pirates, smugglers, and the first Christians. There are ancient stones, nature reserves, lots of castles, and a few abbeys ahead.

The six countries you can see are: Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales. and of course, the Isle of Man.
