Just finished planning the first distance outing on my new RS. Taking a 4 day break in May and will head for Applecross. - 1st Day - Leicestershire to just North of Loch Lomond (should be a good test of the ergonomics!) - 2nd Day - Loch Lomond to Applecross - 3rd Day - Applecross to Kielder - 4th Day - Kielder to Leics. Once of the M-ways will be heading up the A82 past Loch Lomond, Fort William, Invergarry, Kyle of Lochalsh etc. Should be around 1200 miles round trip. I've wussed out on accommodation as originally planned to camp.........but have now booked "Hobbit Huts" at each site as I didn't fancy taking a risk with Scottish weather and spending 8 hours riding in the rain to turn up at a campsite to pitch a tent....and struggle to dry my kit! Hobbit huts (apart from Kielder) have electricity, heat and mattresses. Visited Kielder on the 1150R last year - stunning night skies (its a "Dark Skies" park and the darkest place in England) and a 13 mile gravelled forest drive. Never been North of Glasgow on the Scottish West coast.......even though born in Irvine! Will take a few photos and post an update on here. Any tips for "must see" POI, or eateries/distilleries etc along the way?
