Think we got really lucky on the weather front, felt more like the Channel Islands.

No problems part from a puncture on islay in bowmore.

Nearly a 1000 miles covered in 8 days.

Friendly lot of people on islay as we'll.

Big thanks to. Gene for the camping and local trip around  lkebtn

Far from it Gene... It was nice to get some info to fill in the blanks and gather some of the history of the cracking part of the world you live in.

Well 260 miles later sees us land at Alnmouth south of Berwick and on the home leg.... Found loverly campsite by a river... Nice quiet pitch (wild camping in Scotland spoils you FACT!.

it's really been a week of stunning views and great company with some new experiences for me personally... Wild camping really is something else.
Big BIG  thanks to all that turned up... And especially Gene for his hospitality AND generosity in organising both laning/facilities/fire etc.




 
 























More to come when I've uploaded the rest....

Roll on next year.... Orkney Isles next time? ;-)

Home Sweet Home


A view and a dog........ at peace


Drawin' 't fire


This is nae hoo we park oor leafers roond here Jimmy.....thanks to Ian and Tigger-on-speed for the recovery


What's the story? - Wouldn't you like to know? (under ten year old needed to make sense of that one)

and lo, on the eight day, Luke did venture forth to the sea and bring for the people the piece of Cod that passeth all understanding ...........and they saw that it was good.


The most amazing time - thanks to all for the experience, the company and the adventure.
