Scotland tour .

Post by fastbob » Sat Aug 01, 2020 7:27 pm

So far so good , set out at midday and got to Abington Services for 18:30 . I went M1/ A1M to Scotch Corner , A66 across Britain to the M6 , up to Gretna then picked up the eerily deserted B7078 to Crawford and Abington . I've seen my camping spot from a distance and it looks ok . The Iron Age Hill Forts look a lot higher up than they did on Google maps but I need to stretch my legs .

Camped for the night now in the spot that I found on Google maps . Right on the corner of that wood . Nice and peaceful you might think ,but the roar of the M74 and the trains on the London to Glasgow line have put paid to that .

Day two . Abington to Morar . What a wonderful days riding . Got up and went to Abington services for a dreadful breakfast then just kept going right through Glasgow , up Loch Lomond , stopped at the Green Welly Stop , through Glen Coe , ignored Fort William and took the Road to the Isles to Camusdarach where I'm currently camped .

abington services used to be ok obviously gone down hill might have changed ownership or something :(
