Some from the return trip from Braemar....

It's pretty wide open countryside up near Braemar ...I don't think I would want to be here in a storm.....





They even have signs along this road advising that this is an excellent route for bikes, with plenty of awesome bends.....

Weird, I know this road like the back of my hand, it's a great road for a bit of "Dog Fighting" with some truly stunning views.

I enjoyed the pictures in this thread (all 232 pages, that took a while haha), but the story lines were perhaps more interesting. Thanks for sharing with us. Scotland is incredible.

Sure Scotland is incredible, beautiful, wonderful people (with a strange accent lol), good food ( fantastic pear cider ), fantastic sceneries, and the roads are fabulous.

It is a great road ..although there is currently a bit of gravel on the road from road works in the last few miles before Braemar....

I don't know the road as well as you ..the west coast is our normal 'playground' ....... In fact the previous time I rode this road was at least two years ago ...having said that I have just ridden it again on Friday - taking a visiting friend from Northern Ireland up to Aberdeen (he's off to Shetland on his SV1000)... he absolutely loved the road too.

Thanks for the good news bad news...glad you still enjoy the thread ..even after 232 pages of it! Lol! Well done!

I'm glad to see you are a fan of Scotland...hopefully some of the pics may have helped forge your opinion ........ However the pics really don't do it justice ...you must come and see it for real if you can.
