Bloody Photos! :pinch:


Anyways... I routinely ride from Manchester to Aberdeen for work (offshore) but this trip was a bit different.

I had to fly back to blighty to do a course in work time, and sadly (lol) the course finished on the Friday and there was no helicopters until tomorrow morning (Momday)

So I slung my camping bag on the back of the bike...

It meant I had Friday lunchtime till today, to do whatever I wanted :lol:



And all on full pay! :P


So, I pottered off up to Inverness, via the Caingorms, then headed to Forres (Ace Adventure Camping) its the next best thing to Wild Camping.

My intention had been to have a night at Forres and then a night at Loch Assynt or Lochinver, wild camping, which I've done before.

But, cause I was slightly worried about work calling, and managing wet kit, I pitched camp at Forres for two nights.

Saturday was great, I went off towards Invergordon, and then took the windy B roads up through BonnerBridge, found a butchers, and carried on up to Loch Shin / Merkland, where I plopped myself down and made a coffee and a big Man Size steak and shroom sarny on the Loch Shore, lovely!
