North Scotland Tour - mid to September.
#1
Could be rolling the dice here weather wise, but it’s the only time I have a long weekend free - this year. I’m thinking of having a meander around the North of Scotland. Inverness - around that way for a long weekend. Considering the current climate, could be a good chance, the weathers good. It will be a laid back kinda gig for 4 days.

Just thought I’d throw it out there first and see if there’s any interest. Been up to the North a few times, but never really explored it properly. I wouldn’t mind, getting some digs and pettling out etc. I’ll see what interest and ideas come in, then I’ll go fourth and multiply from there. I have control - standby standby.
To the Regiment! I wish I was there.

Well a curved ball has landed my way in the form of a booked time off 20th September to 2nd of October when me and Gail we’re due to book something away. She has gone and got a new job so looks like I have the holiday but she doesn’t so need to hatch a plan to make use of it

Always fancy a bit of Scotland, but not sure what dates I can get free - the very last weekend could be an option but I’d have to dib out of a family trip to Centerparcs, always controversial.

Yeah! I kinda have the same problem mate. The last two weekends I have free for myself. Just need a bit of time on the bike tbh. Nothing to heavy. I’ll definitely be doing something.

Pick a date between the 20th September  and the 2nd of October. The clues are in the post god dam you! I’m quite flexible TBF. I’ll spell it out for you though. The arse end of September/ beginning of October. I will get Dave to reiterate what I have posted for you. I await your dates with baited breath.

I know, I don't know how he copes. Laugh

Right Kev, the simple answer is I have 0 free weekends in that period of time Sad

As I said before the last weekend (29/30th) may be possible but it would mean trying to get out of our annual trip to CentreParcs and even my negotiating skills may not stretch that far.

So You and Shipbuilder Dave make a plan and if I can wangle it I will tag on.

Plan !! We need a plan?? God that sounds like hard work!!! So wee Kev given Lee Wankio needs an excuse not to attend Centre parks I say head East & nail off Northumberland & Edinburgh then head north to your chosen top bits then back down the West taking in Glencoe aim to be heading southbound by 30th then Lee can thrash up to meet us depending how far he wishes to come in a weekend

In the history of Mancriders the word PLAN never seems to appear.

I only meant as in; leave on X day, stay at X B&B, come back on X day - no one expects an itinerary  Laugh
