It was pleasure spending time with you and Bernadette..... as mentioned before, you are welcome back anytime ...there are still plenty of great roads and locations we didn't get a chance to show you.

Cheers

Kam & Sarah
thanks, and the next time it will be with the van.

It is not a spent time, but some really great moments!!

Next time with french cheeses, good wine, chips for Sarah, and ...

... with pear cider

and coca cola of course

That's some contrast on the 'boats' .....and yes, bringing the bikes in the van up the boring motorways sounds like a plan - no need to bother about rain or fix luggage - just chuck everything in the van and roll the bikes out intact with perfect tyres to enjoy the miles of twisty roads this end.

As for 'good French wine and cheese' ...we are still enjoying the last batch, thanks again. l

Last pics from Saturday's ride ... after another fill up at Inveraray we headed up to the 'Rest n be Thankful' to enjoy the view ....





..and as it was getting late we decided to round off a perfect day by heading back north up the lochside to have an evening meal at the Drovers - Scotland's oldest Inn.......






A perfect day - good roads, great scenery, no rain & good friends ..

Thanks but those were just simple cheeses and wines.

Hope you like all?
