  • Love a chilled tour. How did you work out the accommodation for the airbnbs? Pre planned it all out like a psychopath (me) or took it free and easy with last minute booking?

    Also I like your shorts, where'd you get them if you don't mind me asking?

  • Ah, another psychopath like me! Yes everything was pre-booked about 6 months in advance. I even had a spreadsheet of all the details under the clear pocket on my rando bag - romantic I know. Slight gamble because if one of the ferries couldn't run then everything's messed up, but we passed literally hundreds of B&B's and I'd guess 80% showed 'full' so glad we did.

    Regarding the shorts, they were actually an old paid of (Wrangler?) trousers. Like most of the shorts I wear nowadays when they get holes in the knees they're given another lease of life. Sorry that's probably not very useful answer!

  • Looks great.


    The photo of you in shorts, reminds me of the descent off the climb out the back on Fort Augustus. Is it?

  • Yeah, I guess that's why they invented S&S couplers..
    I can add that to the list of reasons to get one of the fancy coupled steel tandems from JD Tandems at some point ;)

  • That's the one :)

  • That looks like you had a great time, very jealous.
    Always fancied a trip in Scotland,Did you pass any Bothies? Never tried one but look like fun


  • Sounds amazing!

  • @SideshowBob didn't see too many actually, compared to Wales come to think of it. Have wanted to stay in one so might have to change that for the next trip.

    @TM thanks fellow genesis brethren ✊
