We kept missing the signs. In the end we were more focussed on folowing the route than the scenery. You need good navigation througout the whole route or it's bettter to do a tour like Hop on Hop off.

An enjoyable route through some great countryside with fantastic views across the bay. There are sign posts to guide you( although we managed to miss on and go the wrong) along the way and we came across some nice areas to stop for coffee etc.
