Scotland Motorcycle Tour 2013

Perth > Crieff > Glen Coe > Eilean Donan > Isle of Skye > Applecross > Gairloch > Ullapool > Durness

iansmallAfter my tour back in 2011 I was keen to get back on the bike and repeat the trip – this year it happened!

The weather wasn’t quite as kind to us as last time but with five motorbikes, a kit car and an old school Mini hitting the road, we weren’t too bothered.

Our first stop on day 1 was at Glen Coe for a burger but we were thwarted by the fact the burger van wasn’t there.

Glen Coe was overcast and low cloud was looming.

Applecross looking moody. I really wish I had brought my full camera gear at this stage!

Overall I covered about 800 miles through all types of weather and yet again the VFR800, even closing in on 40,000 miles, was faultless at every stage. Roll on the next tour!
