When you leave the campsite head for Kippen and join the A811 to Drymen, stay on the A811 heading for Balloch at the south end of Loch Lomond. Join the A82 heading North for Tarbet with the Bonnie Bonnie Banks in full view to your right for most of the road, a wide open road but don't be tempted to open it up as it is usually well policed.
At Tarbet Hotel continue straight on but now on the A83 for Arrochar (at the end of Loch Long) and Inveraray. After Ardgarten the road takes you up to the "Rest and be Thankfull" where there is a car park and view point. If you stop and look back down the glen you will see the remnants of the old road which will give some idea of how the name came about!
Continue on through Cairndow and round the end of Loch Fyne where you will find the famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. http://www.lochfyne.com/about/history/
Continue on to Inveraray passing the Castle on your right before you head in to the village. There are plenty of facilities here if you are looking for a stop.
Leave Inverary on the A819 through Glen Aray with Loch Awe on your left as you approach the A85. Take right when you join the A85 and head for Dalmally and then Tyndrum. At Tyndrum you will find the Green Welly and plenty of other facilities. http://www.thegreenwellystop.co.uk/Aboutus/
Leave Tyndrum on the A82 heading for Crianlarich continue straight through, now on the A85, heading for Lochearnhead, Strathyre and Callander. http://www.incallander.co.uk/trossachs_katrine.htm#trossachs
After Callander you can head back to Thornhill and the Campsite.
Go safely and enjoy the ride.
