Thanks.  :002:

I'm not good at writing stuff. But I wanted to keep a kind of diary for myself.

+1, great stuff! Thank you.

Anyone noticed on the interactive map a real LACK of fuelling stations?

Make sure you have enough fuel groum gairloch to get you to Ullapool, did it 2 years ago, display flatlined 12 miles from Ullapool, and coasted into the fuel station, 2 of the fuel station have been removed, so top up whenever you get the chance  :034:

If you are going in April then the bealach na ba is havin a lot of road works and will be closed for 6 weeks most pf the day
when you sit on a sports bike you feel special...when you sit on an adventure bike you feel something special is going to happen!!

Some tips in link below for fuel stops, I've been touring Scotland since the 70's, not had a problem obtaining fuel but there are areas with none for 50 miles. Same with real ale but thankfully this is improving, while fuel stations are closing. Take an up to date map of fuel stops & the Good Beer Guide.
Camping is easy to find up there. May & Sept best imo, less wee beasties.
Hope ya have a great time.

 :017: If you can avoid it don't go with huge boxes sticking out the sides of the bike and check their is tarmac when you put your foot down in a passing place !

There was an item on the local news that the pass may be closed shortly in order to fit cabling for the MOD, Try phoning Tourist information for updates or Applecross Inn may help
