No snow in the central belt (Scotland)yet but biting cold.

Not sure what route you are using to get to Glen Coe, as for stop offs, there is the Deli at Callander (at the square in the centre) and the Real Food Cafe at Tyndrum.

Have a good trip but take it easy.

Sitting at home with the kids. Not much snow left from last week, but very cold and icy.

As warm as my toes are right now, very despondant that I couldnt get away this weekend. Tent would be pitched and probably half way up the hill to the Clachaig for a well done steak and chips washed down by a nice wee pint....

Have fun guys!

actually still in the office.... busy :sick:

I would have been just packing ready fro a 10am start to get there for 2pm.. hoping there was some daylight and it was not too cold and debating whether to take the high road over the Lecht ski resort

just a note that you will need to wait to June before the snow goes , so I have time to play:-)

I could understand people being worried about the roads if they were on big bore sports bikes but on adventure type bikes?

Not wanting to camp in the snow is a perfectly good excuse. I do it every year and I still hate it but I don't want to be sitting at home reading what a good time my mates are having so I just get on with it and wait until nobody can see me before I start crying :laugh: :laugh:

Snow
