Road Trip Around Scotland

These pictures are in order of travel, from the south of England north, through Scotland, across some of it`s islands and back down south.
I will comment on as many pictures as I can.

First hundred mile stop at Brinklow on the Fosse-way north.

Just past the Scottish border heading west.

good riding conditions.

Camped at Loch Lomond

bit cold at night beside the loch.

Loch Awe on the way to Oban

Connel Bridge over Loch Etive and the Falls of Lora.

I stopped for a wee look see and heard this vehicle coming, see below.

Well timed picture, managed to get both forms of transport in the one shot.

Camp site in Oban. With  Kerrera Island in the background

Gallanachmore farm.

This is a quiet spot near the water.

Road to site office and main camping and caravan areas.

Great camp site just along from the Ferry terminal.

No tent camping.

I just spent the entire day here as it was really relaxing.

 A little spot by the sea.I climbed down with a bottle of wine.

German girl also going around Mull.

Waiting on the Oban to Mull Ferry.

A sad sight  to see on Mull.

The road to Tobermoray

Stopped for lunch in Tobermoray bay.

The last time I visited, we came by yacht.

Travelling anti-clockwise around the island.

Many Lochs on Mull.

Full face helmet for longer trips, makes the chin piece look huge Ha!

Loch Tor.

Great roads in Scotland.

Many sharp bends with sheep.

Nice to stop to take in the views.

I took a lot more shots this trip as I had no worries about time.

Calgary beach, yes same as (Canada) 

Sunny weather all the way!!

This is the only road on the east side of the island

Passed the German tourists here at a cairn.

I toured anticlockwise and the Germans toured clockwise, we met here.

Found a waterfall for a drink.

single-track road all the way.

Fresh water.

Great views.

On the ferry to the Isle of Iona.

Iona ferry

The Bar on Iona.

Only small is Iona.

Back on Mull, Fionnphort beach.

You can pick up the mainland ferry from here, but I am travelling east to Fife so I will go back up the island  to take the Craignure ferry to Oba

Fionnphort is the south  of Mull.

Granite rock jam.

Bit of climbing around.

For better views.

The end of the road on Mull.

Good to get the luggage off.

View out my bedroom window

The view from my window.

Turned right went around the island and then back to the ferry,a couple of days later.

Here she comes.

Bye Craignure and Mull.

A couple of musicians from (Highland way).

Music all the way.(

Went across to Fife to see my brothers family, then back towards Glasgow.

Kincardine bridge across the Fourth estuary.

Passed through Glasgow and south.

Drumlanrig Castle.

I have passed here so many times, and well worth the look.

Finish off with a daft one, ready for the long drag back to England.
