Well I did say it was coming.

Scotland looks better with low cloud and rain though so I'm still jealous, good luck with the rest of the trip @fastbob

I would imagine the folk must have went for a hill walk and when they came back they saw their tents had flooded as if they were inside the tent overnight, there is no way they won't have felt the water getting higher, well unless they were sleeping on air mattress but surely they would have heard the rain hitting off the tent.
Ride safe everyone, hope to see you all out there!

If you have the chance/time I highly recommend that you do the A95 route from Stonehaven to Perth
Alternative and similarly good is the A97 from Huntly then A95 to Perth.

2 excellent routes.

Did Stonehaven years ago they had a sign saying birth place of the pneumatic tyre, Mr Thompson I believe, no mention of Mr Murdoch though.

Hello , wi fi is very patchy here . Still at Glen Coe . Water got in bike , switched itself on in the night and drained the battery . All sorted now . Had a great day riding up and down Glen Coe without the luggage . Scenery stunning in hot sunshine . Actually glad it happened or I would never have had this amazing experience . No pics , but will get some in the morning .

We went up the ski lift at Glencoe Mountain Resort last week, a fun and easy way to get to the top, lovely views.
