    Well peeps i have just got home from my trip to Scotland. And start to finish i was amazed by the people and welcome. Starting with the cottage we booked got there and low and behold received a home cooked chocolate and ginger cake an was it a cake bottle of good wine, teabags coffee and biscuits.Rode all around GlenCoe and Sky and was greeted by all. Missed out on Sheena's Cafe as the day we went she was closed but talked to her Husband and he was just terrific as were so many people. Rode around all the loughs and water ways did the pass of the cattle scared the life out of me but managed it. I love Scotland and can't wait to. go back it is dripping in Beauty and wonderment.I have other pictures i will upload when i sort through them and some video but i got to learn how to upload it. Tracy is going to show me when she gets the time. Regards Joe.

    So glad you had a wonderful trip filled with beauty, adventures, and warm welcome from local folks. :) I'm also glad you're back home safe and sound now, too. I'll be looking forward to seeing more photos and hearing stories of our travels. Thanks for sharing!! :heart: Mr. Sandi and I may need to add Scotland to our (long) motorcycle trip bucket list. :cool:

    Nice one, Joe. Seems that there were more than a few forum members there last weeke enjoying the great beauty and hospitality that Scotland offers! Guess I should add a couple of pictures of our walking holiday?

    Nice one. I love going back to Scotland, if only I could get better weather and less midges it would be perfect.
    It looks like you got stuck in a loop between Eilean Donan and the old man of Storr though. ;)

    Wow! I can't begin to imagine the labor that went into building all those structures without modern equipment. It's amazing.

    The only times I've bin to Scotland, is to t'naval bases. Faslane for a few hours, and Rosyth a couple o times, so not seen much of it. The more I see photo's and stories like this, the more I want to visit, especially on mi bike.
