Since I had some free time and the weather was supposed to be good I decided to have a crack at the fabled PEN1$ 287 from The Grand Tour tv show. Did it over 2 nights and stayed near Gairloch on the west coast. Clarkson and the guys did say it was one of the best driving routes they have ever taken and it certainly did not disappoint. Amazing views and scenery. Fantastic roads and some great food along the way. Weather held out although I did get slightly damp in a cloud at one point. Surprised how quiet most of the roads were although there were quite a few camper vans to contend with. Plenty of bikers as well to chat to when I stopped along the way. Would definitely recommend this route and it could easily be done in a day if your starting from Inverness. I will be doing it again for sure. Also a shout out to the Thruxton R. What a machine! I love that bike more and more every time I ride it. On the downside Pirelli Rosso Corsas are very expensive and I seem to have shredded a set in my excitement. Dave.
