Scotland 29th Sept 2012 - 6th Oct 2012

Hi All,

I know this doesn't seem as adventurous as other posts but, I am leaving Swindon, Wiltshire, UK for Scotland on Saturday 29th September 2012 (Week today)

I have no plans other than the first night at a campsite to settle into things before wild camping for the remainder of the trip as long as the weather stays reasonable.

Camping at Loch Lomond on this site (1st Night):
Camping accommodation on the West Highland Way – Beinglas Farm Campsite

From here, on Sunday the 30th, I have no plans other than to return home by 6th/7th October & to ride the most I can and experience what Scotland has to offer as I have never been.

I have planned to camp, if it gets too much then I have a list of B&B's and Hostels dotted around the High lands, Islands, lowland to have a look at should it be required.

Should anyone be heading that way or wish to join me please get in touch, it would be fantastic to meet fellow like minded riders, oh and I ride a NC700X.

Cheers

Ash
