Scotland (again) backwards Day 2

Having woken up in Ullapool and a good breakfast under my belt, and most importantly a good night sleep I was ready to set off North and into Assynth, an area of Scotland in the far North West thats has the most striking mountains on the UK mainland, often overlooked...

Scotland (again) backwards Day 1

Its time I went to Scotland again, mainly because two sections of the Scottish 500 remain out of my grasp. I say backwards in the title, as the previous trips to Scotland all seemed to drive the route anti-clockwise, and this time I wanted to view it from a clockwise...

Ardnamurchan

Ardnamurchan or bust

The getaway is underway, breakfast in front of fire. Windy now, no doubt due to square sausage and tattie scone. (Tyndrum cafe) After breakfast I then drove to the furthest West one can go on the mainland (which is further west than Lands End before you wonder) a headland called...

Scottish Coast 500 (final leg) last day

So there I am laying in bed on Sunday morning in Ullapool thinking about the previous day and already my head space was filling up with images of great views, and I knew I had a full day ahead of me, so many little challenges I had set myself, and...

Scottish Coast 500 (last leg) Day One

last year I drove most of the Scottish 500 coastal route, and was blown away by the shear scale and beauty of it all. I was overloaded with images and views that I didn’t want to loose, so I cut the trip short at Ullapool. Over this Bank holiday weekend...

The SC500 is a tourist route in Scotland that I failed to drive when undertaking the John O Groats to Lands End drive in October last year. The route in essence follows the coast all around the top of Scotland from Inverness, North to John o Groats, then across the...

Scotland skiing

Right here are a couple of pictures from Nevis Range Snow today. Yes I have been known to stick planks of wood to my feet and slide down hills before, typically British mind, no skill just that stiff upper body (or is that lip?). The views were good, shame my...

Scotland October 2014

Speed is for loser drivers

Today I trundled through the Highlands of Scotland at about 40 miles an hour, slower on the long uphill bits. I took a few images of the mountains and hills I saw on route. Loch Lomond has a terrible road, its having some upgrades which have made it a right...

Cheap Fuel

One cylinder short of a four pot

It started on saturday at 3.30am, I got into Rambo, turned the key and headed out into the great unknown, by 6am I was way north and stopped for a break, only to discover I had left my iPad at home. Not a great start to keeping a blog of...
