    Shen,

    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Do you ride in these areas or are they just scenic?

    I rode in the areas to get the pics. The Loch Sunart one I have been offered money for... Woo!

    I found I had a program on a disc DnvrFox and so was abloe to shrink them nae bother last night.

    I have quite a few so over time I'll post some up as no doubt there is a limit of some sort on the amount I can post.

    I was very lucky this year in that although we had a very wet and poor summer every time I took of with camper and dog I had some good weather, and in fact on Skye it was amazingly good.

    Lovely pictures. They reminded me of an old gentleman from Scotland I rode with years ago. I was delighting in a long downhill run into a river valley one day when he admonished me, "But ya got ta remember Lad, for ev'ry doon there's another oop."

    You pasted the sky from a travel catalog onto the picture of Loch Tarrant. I toured the highlands 44 years ago, and when it wasnt overcast it was raining cats and dogs.

    Aye but AndrewP does this not show there is a law of averages?

    I drove around the corner and there it was at ten in the morning in front of me. I signalled pulled over and here you are.

    Sorry to hear you had a wet trip but... whispers... IT does NOT rain ALL the time in bonny Scotland... else it would be called drookit Scotland.. LOL

    Thanks Shen for the images. They are very beautiful. However there is a certain loneliness to the landscape. Very quiet scenes.

    They are lonely landscapes yes, and I love them all the more for that element. I live half my life in noise and company. I adore the peace of the ride and the solitude of the west of Scotland landscapes.

    True , the West coast is lovely but when cycling/camping one gets tired of waking up in a wet field.Again I have to say the until recently I have ignored the Northeast and Morayshire and this is wonderful cycling countryand NO midges.One of the biggest drawbacks on the west coast is being forced to use main roads as the minor roads are few.I do have to admit it though it is very, very special.

    Glorious Scotland..

    I spent Xmas with my daughter up the west coast.

    It Snowed very early on Xmas day and intermitently most of the day .

    Boxing day dawned brilliant blue skies and sunshine, and oh that scene of Snow on mountains, sparkling clear air and visibility forever.

    A day to store in the memory.....

    A couple of Miles East of Helensburgh, toward Loch Lomond.
