Last nights dinner was absolutely out of this world! It is always amazing to stay at such wonderful yet remote places and wonder how they are able to serve such a wonderful dinner in the middle of nowhere and have better wifi than many large inner city hotels.
That feeling when you have a full day of riding ahead and hope that when you open the room curtains that it will at least be dry, even if completely overcast, only for your eyes to be met with rain bouncing off the bike seat….
Well, luckily that didn’t last and by the time we were finished with breakfast the rain had subsided and we were bouncing and bumbling along the small 20 mile single track lane out of the hotel.
Todays ride ended up being awesome. We had very little drizzle, the temperature was comfortable and the roads were a lot of fun varying from single track to two lane road, all of which were fun and very twisty. Drivers have been really good to us and always pulled over on the single track roads to let the bikes through so that the group does not have to stop.
Our first stop was to walk around the ruins of the 15th century Andvreck Castle before stopping for coffee at a new little gem of a coffee shop!
White sandy beaches with beautiful, soft turquoise rolling waves are probably not what one associates with Scotland but as we rode along the northern coast we were all amazed at the stunning beaches we found along the way. They were small, pristine and fairly quite. The weather was great and the scenery was an absolute delight.
The Scottish coast has so much to offer visitors and with the narrow, twisty roads, polite drivers and wonderful scenery, it makes for a perfect motorcycle touring destination.
