270.5 Miles. Freezing cold. Rain, hail and sunshine.

Stunning scenery. Scotland is on our "must do" list.

Its great when the weather is kind. I spoke to a Ukranian lady and her husband and she said she was terrified a few weeks ago in Glencoe as the weather was so bad, must have been bad if a lady from Eastern Europe said it was frightening...

Glencoe can be kind of spooky when the mist is down. Very 'atmospheric'!

I will be spending a few months up in Scotland working on The Open at Carnoustie from mid May. I am trailering one of my bikes with me.  Hopefully I will get chance to do a bit of exploring whilst up there.

Lovely pictures.  Can't wait to go back, but I'll wait to July, more crowded but at least the rain will be warm rain!

May, in my opinion is the best month in western Scotland. Longer days, not as much traffic as the summer.

Our ST7 Weekend was through Glencoe and Fort William. Weather was great. Midges weren't.
