Back on British isles, this time Scotland. A pre-booked B&B at 15 Mayfield Road. Day after heading west and Malliag was my first goal. Warm and Sunny Spelling I been told. Queensferry and Forth of Bridge, a railway bridge from late 1889 was my first stop. Then lunch in Stirling. Cycling throug small villages, winding roads and stunning scenics. Every minutes was a sight for the eyes and the soul.The weather was up en down, some rain but mostly cloudy.
Oban and next B&B. Then a ferry boat to Isle of Mull and Craignure, cycling for six miles and another ferry to Localine.It’s raining cats and dogs. Hotel at Lochailort Inn and they helpt me with my wet cloths.

Next morning Mallaig and ferry boat to Isle Of Sky.

The Skye ferry arrived at Armadale on Isle of Sky after 45 minutes over the strait Sound of Sleat. The 16 miles or 26 km cycling to Broaford.
No probs to find a place to sleep. I found a B&B with the beautiful-sounding name ROSEHAUGH. Three night stand!
Next day 15 miles cycling to Elgol and a boattrip to Loch Coruisk, at the very heart of the Cuillin, the most magnificent of all Scottish freshwater lochs.
Seals, birds and a scenics views  like few others got to experience, WOW!

Next goal is Isle of Lewis & Harris. Ferry boat from Uig,  North Isle of Sky to Tarbert. Next day further up to Stornoway and another ferry boat back to mainland and UllaPool 

UllaPool is so beautiful, magnificent, gorgeous, breathtakning that I can’t find word for it. Approximately 15,000 inhabitants has received the gift of living here.
Stayed two nights. Then my most stunning cycling ever, all the way upp to norhtenmost place on Scotland highland, Cape of Wrath. I had goosebumps all the way. Last 12 miles was a cycling tour that keep my heartbeat up. The road more like a path for horses and carts but gorgeous!
Tent camped close to the lighthouse and a staggering North Atlantic Ocean.
More beautiful landscape views, bens, small villages, lochs, glens and 195 km to the highlands capitol Inverness.


Highlands and Isles

Two nights at a cheap and clean B&B, dinner beside the harbor, Haggis and a large Guinness. The dinner was so delicious that it was repeated the evening after.

Day after a boattrip on ”The Loch”, Loch Ness and ”Nessie”, A little disappointed after all the anticipation… Nessie not visible…this time. Glencoe valley became the next unforgettable experience, known for its romantic beauty. Cycling throuh this valley and the road-facing peaks of Aonach Dubh, Beinn Fhada and Gearr Aonach are the mountains that are together known as the Three Sisters was breathtaking.

From  here heading south west and Edinburgh. Did a stop at Falkirk to watch and explore The Falkirk Wheel the world’s first and only rotating boat lift, something to watch I promise!

Then a must stop at Bo’ness motor museum showing James Bond cars and stuff. Before Edinburgh one night and castle visit in Stirling.

Three nights in Edinburg, the castel, The Mary Kings Close ,pubs, guinness and good food before a flight with Ryanair home to Sweden.

💓 Scotland still one of my especially favorites💓
