  • Nope. Frost.

  • And snow it seems :(

  • That's a good shout. Any recommended one?

  • Slightly different approach to touring Scotland by bike here.

  • Hopefully heading up to Glasgow on the train next Saturday & setting off on this with my partner:

    Taking a tent & planning to wild camp half the time & have hotels booked for the other nights. All with free cancellation as you can never can tell with the weather - might have to sack the entire trip off if there's not an improvement in the forecast :(

  • Where are you planning to wild camp? It's banned in some places on the route you've got there, mainly around the Trossachs but possibly elsewhere.

  • I'd heard of that & consulted a map on the banned areas the other day & it didn't look too restrictive. Do need to properly cross-reference with the route though & figure out where we'll be wanting to pitch up.

  • I think that as long as you keep away from lochsides in certain areas you'll be fine. Usually I'd say you'll likely not be bothered by any enforcement, but with restrictions lifting they may be out checking. They've had to go and paint double yellows in some places to stop idiots parking up all the roads because the car park is full. The area around the Dukes Pass, Loch Achry/Loch Venechar is pretty heavy with restrictions that go further away from the shore too.
