OUTWEST RALLY 2016 PICTURES
« on: May 29, 2016, 23:54:38 PM »
This was the first time myself and Heather have been to an Adventure rally and it certainly won't be the last.

Still find it hard to believe with all the miles I've traveled round Scotland that I've never been to this area before but onto the Corran ferry we went...



...£6 and a few minutes later we were there.

Our house for the next few days...



...the view from our door.



All was looking quiet and peaceful until this bunch turned up...



Introduced ourselves to Craig who made us feel very welcome, had a wee chat with Tim and were advised on the local eateries.

We chose the Strontian Hotel where, though we hadn't pre booked, they fitted us in and served up a couple of lovely dishes and deserts which we were absolutely delighted with, the staff were spot on and having had a chat with the new owner Lee on Saturday I wish him and his wife every success with their new venture and hopefully we'll see him through his test and on a bike in the not too distant future.

On the Friday morning, refreshed from a snoring free sleep (Not!) we headed out for a run with Craig







A great ride and we made it back just in time to meet up with Tim who had offered to take us over to a private estate road with permissions in place. Due to the fact Tim was riding a very exotic Italian machine he only took us so far then left us alone with a cautionary tale not to go past the locked gate about 8 miles away.

First thing first I had to have a wee play in the ford



That was to set the tone for the next seven or eight miles were I attempted to go though every puddle on the way there and back.







We got to the gate and I cannot deny that the temptation to ride beyond the gates was immense...

More to follow but right now I need a decent sleep.

Cheers
Alan

Having had a great time at the ADV Scotland rally in Strontian I thought I would post a few piccies from my trip to Mull on Saturday.
From the ferry on the way across.


Some random shots on Mull, no idea of the place names as it's all Gaelic to me.  ::)

I stopped here for a fag and sat listening to the silence for 15 minutes.

And did a bit of nature study.




Lastly, a couple of pictures on the gnarly wee back road on the mainland that takes you back to Corran.




Andy.
Every day above ground is a good day.

A "taster" from me, from our wander along the path less travelled . . . . . . except Scotrider and his good lady did it the day before we did!

Excellent trip (Thanks Craig and Tim)

Some snaps - nothing dramatic due to lack of high winds and torrential rain :-) from the weekend to help with my declining memory.

Regards
