So Im heading up to Kyle of Lochalsh this Saturday, August 13th for a bit of a hoon around the highlands.

 

Ill be landing in Cairnryan around 6am that morning before making the trek up to Kyle of Lochalsh, then on to Lochinver, Betty Hill, Lairg, Nairn over the next week.

 

Anyone around want to say hi on Saturday or during the week? :) Either way Ill be passing through Glasgow on Saturday and stopping somewhere after that to break up the drive. 6 hours from Cairnryan to Kyle of Lochalsh :dunce:

 

Ill be in Inverness on Friday afternoon-ish then heading down to Perth before driving back to Cairnryan the next morning.

have just done the north 500 in the mx5, absolutely brilliant stunning roads, just watch your speeds as joking aside there are a lot of single track roads and livestock on the roads, we were held up by a stubborn highland coo for about 10mins lol, as it was considerably bigger than us there wasn't much of an argument lol

 

Kenny, have you ever been in the North of Scotland, there wasn't a single speed camera and we covered well over 500 miles

ner,just past edinburgh,but that was enough for me,easy when you have cruise control but keep constantly aware on a long drive is paramount if you want points.
