A fine ride report, that one, Matt! Thanks so much!
I'm sure that it must take almost as long as the ride itself to put together such a report, so you're forgiven (by me, at least) in advance if there are times in the future when your reports are a bit thinner. No worries, just thanks for letting us ride with you. I remember driving past the castle while on an auto-driving holiday a few years ago -- how much more brilliant it must be to do it on the bike! Do keep a sharp eye out for deer in or approaching the road -- one of our US inmates was killed hitting one on his bike. Perhaps the lairds need to get out and do a bit more stalking!!
