Day 14 - Loch Carron to Gairloch

Lochs and Glens Day
We left Loch Carron in fine drizzle and climbed into mist this morning but the forecast was to improve. David reckons today's cycle ride of 51 miles is one of the top rides in Britain in his opinion -and I agree!
We cycled along Upper Loch Torridon and then through Glen Torridon, a dream of a place for anyone interested in geology - me!
Called in at Kinlochewe for eats before cycling to Gairloch. First call was to see Jill and Rick, extended family who operate sea trips to see the wildlife. Not seen in 7 years - great to catch up with them.
54miles, average 12.5 mph, max 43 mph
Total distace - 917 miles.

  1. I bet 50 miles was a breeze. Sorry about the bottom bracket, one needs a good solid bottom to cycle so far!!!! xx

    A Scotsman walking through a field, sees a man drinking water from a pool with his hand.
    The Scotsman man shouts ' Awa ye feel hoor thatâs full Oâ coos Sharn'
    (Don't drink the water, it's full of cow s ** t.)
    The man shouts back 'I'm English, Speak English, I don't understand you'.
    The Scotsman man shouts back 'Use both hands, you'll get more in.'
