Scotland west coast
« on: May 14, 2018, 18:34:29 »
I have just returned from an epic 5 day trip on the bike.I ended up doing exactly 1300 miles start to finish.

I won't even try to describe to beauty of the place but if you get the chance only once you MUST do it .

I will be buzzing from the trip for a few days yet.Roll on Wales in June.

Hello mate,
   I live on the west coast of Scotland and recognise a few places, what route did you take?  I did the NC500 last year on my Blackbird and it was Epic.  The bits around Ullapool are amazing.
Cheers Jock

That mileage seemed familiar to me. Here's a snap of my mileage after a trip up and around Scotland. You managed 0.1 miles further. You must have looped a roundabout twice
