    Day 3- Edinburgh to Inverness

    Distance covered-200 miles



    Woke up early the next day. It had rained through the night and the sky was overcast still, so it was not looking all that good for a ride.
    Wife and in laws had left in the morning, I was as usual late and started at 10ish. Plan was to take the A9 all the way to Inverness.
    It's around 180 miles from Edinburgh and I had hopes of making it to Inverness by lunchtime.
    The A9 goes through the Cairngorms national park which is famous for it's wild beauty and ski resorts.This place gets the most snowfall
    in the Uk. Riding through it, you'd be presented with one awesome view after the other around each corner!
    I was so enjoying the views and the rides that I took very few pictures. I need to get a helmet cam now.

    Notice the speed camera there. It's an average speed camera, so you need to rest a bit before crossing it if you'd been naughty in that stretch!

    During the summer, you'd see a lot caravan's like this on the roads here. People just pack, throw their bicycles in and set out.

    My hopes of having lunch at inverness were soon dashed when I saw roadworks for miles on the A9. Speed limits of 40 mph on those stretches meant I reached Inverness
    at 3pm. Quickly turned the satnav on upon entering Inverness and reached the hotel in no time. I was expecting wife to be already there, but
    no, they hadn't reached yet. I checked into both the rooms and freshened up. The nicely done bed was looking inviting, even more so given the stiff neck from the ride.
    They arrived an hour later after which myself and wife went out for a walk to get meals for all of us.


    Inverness, in Gaelic means -at the mouth of (river) Ness. Ness has to be one of the shortest rivers in the UK, it's 12 miles long and think starts
    at the north of lake Lochness.
    Inverness is a cute little town also known as the captial of the Highlands. If one wishes
    to explore the north of Scotland, then this is where one should camp. It's also served well by most domestic air and train links.
    It's a small town and you can explore all of it in 3-4 hours on foot.The Ness flows through the centre of the town and divides into two parts.
    The central thoroughfare right at the bank of Inverness is where all the action is.

    The Inverness Castle. The panoramic bird's eye shots of the entire city can be taken from here.
    It's a bit of climb away, but definitely worth it.

    The Lochness Visitor Centre has all the stuff you need to know about Nessie,the lochness monster, and the lake in general. It's situated in a beautiful village called
    Drumnadrochit which is 15 miles from Inverness.
    More on Lochness in Day 4 logs...

    Day 4- Inverness-Isle of Skye-Inverness (The highlands)
    Distance covered- approx 300 miles
    Route taken-Inverness-A84-A887-A87-Isle fo Skye


    The next day was the Isle of Skye tour day. I had booked wife and in laws 3 seats on a tour bus operated by the Highlands Experience Tours.
    This was the same tour company I had used the last time I went there and I wholeheartedly recommend them. You'd find many
    great tour companies if you base yourself in Edinburgh, but if you want to see the highlands then you've got to base yourself in Inverness and
    these guys are one of the few based in Inverness and are very good. They operate medium sized Mercedes Benz buses and take care not to take too many people
    in one tour thereby keeping it small and manageable. The tour guides are knowledgeable as well.


    The tour bus was Ok but let me tell you this- The best tour of the highlands is done on a motorcycle, preferably a CBR and not any CBR,
    yellow is noticeably faster , turns and leans in better than other CBRs
    Jokes apart, as I said the bike was not in top condition with a jugad keeping the pipes from leaking, but so far hadn't faced any trouble.
    But other than that it felt like it belonged there.


    So as is evident from the name, the Isle of skye is an island, located in the west of Scotland and is separated from the Scottish mainland
    by a very thin strip of sea water. There is a quite tall bridge over this trip which connects it to the mainland.
    The isle of Skye is famous for its breathtaking landscapes and of course the Skye scotch-Talisker whiskey- the only sigle malt in the isle of Skye.


    The tour bus left Inverness at 9 am, and I started soon after, promising wife that I'd meet them midway. You'd have to take the A82 from inverness
    which runs beside the eastern bank of the famous Lochness and then a few miles before Fort Augustus, take the A87 from there to the west.
    This route is truely a treat for the senses.The A82 lets you see some awesome views of the Lochness and the Urquhart Castle to your left. The A87 snakes its way through some stunning scenary of the
    glen(Gaelic for valley) Shiel and the Kintail mountains before taking you to Loch Duich. This loch is beautiful but people come here not for the loch
    but for the Eilean Donan castle which sits at the northern tip of the Loch. The setting is ideal for clicking picture postcards and is very popular
    with tourists. Shahrukh fans would instantly recognise this castle as one of the songs in the movie Kuchh kuchh hota hai were shot here(the song is also
    partly shot at Urquhart castle in Lochness btw).
    The Eilean Donan castle , believe it or not, is still inhabited. It was in ruins after the clan wars and restored some 100 years ago and
    is privately owned now.The owners open this place for public I think in the summers and thanks to them for that.

    I was taking my own sweet time taking numerous roadside breaks to enjoy the views, so I could only meet wife at the castle. The only decent pictures
    I have of me and the bike from that day are when I was at Eliean Donan as they were shot by the dslr which the wife was carrying.
    Rest of the bike pics are all 5mp awesomness of my ancient Lumia .
    We all started together for Skye with the tour bus following me. The tour guide was quite surprised and excited to know that I had ridden all the way from down south.
    After riding with the bus for sometime and a few breaks later I realized that riding with a bus is a bit boring so quickly lost them behind and headed to the town of Portree
    where we'd have lunch.In laws were averse to proper restaurant food that day so we had some sausages and sandwiches together and soon set out for Inverness.
    The return journey was more or less the same route but one cannot be bored doing that road again, such is the scenery.

    Here are some pictures-

    Day 5- Inverness-Applecross-Inverness (The highlands)
    Distance covered- approx 220 miles


    This was the last day of tour and probably the most special. We hadn't been to Applecross the last time we were here and were really excited in the morning. I had read some great things about the beauty of the route and the place and it didn't disappoint.
    Applecross is a peninsula in the west of Scotland and is quite remote. Here is a shameless lift from Wikipedia-


    Extremely isolated, Applecross was only accessible by boat until the early 20th century, and for many years after that the only road access was over one of Scotland's most notoriously treacherous roads, the Bealach na Ba ('Pass of the Cattle'), which crosses the peninsula and reaches a maximum height of 2053 ft (626 m), below the 774 m high Sgrr a' Chaorachain. The settlement is now connected via a winding coastal road which travels around the edge of the peninsula to Shieldaig and Torridon. The road skirts the shore of the Inner Sound and Loch Torridon.


    The winding coastal road is also called the Coward's road btw!


    I saw wife and in laws off on the bus and started the ride at around 9:30 am. The day was wet and cloudy with light rain showers throughout. But the not so good riding conditions I think actually added to the mix. The views of the lake shrouded in fog and mist while I tucked into my fish and chips are something I'd never forget.
    Ok, so the route from Inverness to Applecross is the A835 over the Beauly Firth and through Strathcarron. Strathcarron is by the shores of Loch Carron and it is spectacular place to be. I reached there by lunchtime and after enjoying the fish and chips on the shores of Loch Carron, I headed to the Applecross peninsula. I obviously didn't opt for the coward's road, because I am not a coward, only a fool
    The Pass of the Cattle presented some breathtaking views and I don't remember how many times I stopped to soak it in really.But the road really was treacherous. It's a single track road with passing places plus was not in great condition. Besides the wet weather and the fog made it really difficult to ride. Once I reached the top of the pass, the weather cleared up and on the other side the descent was easy and less dramatical.
    Once you reach applecross the first thing you do is tank up. There is just one pump in the entire region and the upkeep is funded by the local residents. You never know if you run out of fuel and then at the pump run out luck as well!
    It's then I realized that the exhaust jugaad was starting to give way as I could hear this 'tsk tsk' sound coming from the head. On close inspection my fears were confirmed, the manifold was indeed leaking at the head again. I held my head in despair but soon realized it was nothing major and I didn't let that bother me.
    After spending a good hour in Applecorss we headed back and this time I did take the Coward's route. It became clear that the road may be for coward's but it lacked no beauty. It was a coastal road so natuarally let you see the dramatic western coastline plus some nice bends and blind drops kept me interested. In fact I came real close to a crash on the Coward's road so nothing should be taken for granted .
    Think I took the A87 via Fort Augustus on the return leg to Inverness.

    These pictures below are from Loch Carron. It truely was a beautiful place.

    The next day woke up early and took the fairings apart, dropped the radiator to tighten the nuts on the manifold studs while wife and her parents headed to Inverness airport to take the flight back to Bournemouth.This was done right in front of the hotel I was staying which was a bit awkward btw.I then left for Bournemouth on the 650 mile motorway return leg.
