    I'm not going to manage next year, but if someone else wants to organize a trip I'd be happy to help them out with routes & accommodation if need be, I think it would be easier to organize if they just said where they were staying each night (like the GMU) and folk could book their own accommodation either at the same hostel/hotel or elsewhere. hopefully I would be able to meet up for some of the daily rides.
    PS
    weatherwise May would be the best time if organizing any road trip in Scotland

    Great photos and thanks for posting. Missed out on my annual trip home to Scotland this year, but that's made me more determined to get there ASAP in 2020. Cheers.

    Trivia about Bealach na Ba: Just back from my 2017 trip and filling up in Milton Keynes, when an old and well used Brough Superior (SS80 I think) pulled up at the next pump. We got talking and he'd just come back from a Brough owners' club pilgrimage to Bealach na Ba. It seems that was a favourite destination for George Brough, and his ashes were scattered on the top. So it's the must visit place for Brough folks.

    Edit: it was 2015 not 2017. Where is the time going???
