Join us on the inaugural Ocean Scottish Getaway and sample the finest Scottish hospitality and maybe a couple of glasses of the local tipple. This trip is focussed on the great roads and scenery of Scotland and each day has lots of fantastic miles to cover.
We'll meet up at our hotel in Buxton and over dinner there'll be an opportunity to meet up with your fellow riders. After breakfast the next morning we'll set off through some of the best roads Northern England has to offer before crossing the border and skirting Glasgow on our way through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and onto Kinlochard, our base for the night.
The following day is a big action packed ride. First we head inland via the famous Green Welly Bikers Cafe and the sky scraping Glencoe, before Fort William en route to Eilean Donan Castle. But the best is still to come; "Bealach na Ba" the Applecross Pass is en route today, often described as the best motorcycling road in Scotland, although we think we have found better! Stop for a coffee in the Walled Garden Cafe, a haven even in tranquil Applecross. Our final stretch is swift swooping A roads as we continue north to our hotel close to the shores of Little Loch Broom.
Day three is a circumnavigation of the north coast. An incredible 270 plus miles of twist and turns, lots of single track routes and great tea stops. This route runs the coast West, North before heading inland across the remote moorland of the Highlands . Don't forget to stop for a Hot Chocolate in Durness at the UK's most remote chocolate shop. Our destination tonight is on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park where we are staying in Grantown on Spey. A regular haunt of our previous Scottish Trips this simple friendly hotel has a fine restaurant and bar.
Some of the best roads in the UK are in the Cairngorms and we ride the Tomintoul road north to south this year, passing Balmoral. From the Cairngorms to the Trossachs and Glencoe. Here you have two options. Take the short route (230 miles) and head through the Trossachs to Drymen for the night. Alternatively take the longer ride (285 miles) riding the length of Loch Fyne, over the and loop past Kilchurn Castle to Drymen.
But the trip is not over yet. We are heading south via the Firth of Clyde and into the Galloway Forest. From here we'll ride further south into England and the lake district before climbing the Kirkstone Pass. Our final destination is Kendal, where a farewell dinner awaits and fond memories of the beauty and great riding that Scotland has to offer.
