Hey guys,

Been doing many trips with the cruiser ever sice i got it.

I was planing a trip from thursday thru to monday in scotland. I have visited before and been to Stirling and Edinburgh. We were thinking to keep the trip more to do with camping, laning and hiking. Is there any where thoay you would suggest that is a must see.

Cheers

West Coast of scotland is worth a visit for the scenery - mountains and lochs,
Glencoe,
Skye
Applecross - belach na baa a great road to drive
Torridon etc

but it can be wetter on the West Coast, and midges definetly worse...

Aviemore - Speyside also a good base with lots of outdoor activities

cant really go "laning" up here, unless you have landowners permission, but there are some pay and play places

e.g. http://www.inverness4x4adventure.co.uk/

And if you make it up towards Edinburgh, let us know, maybe we can get together for a 'hello' :cool:

Although I'm working all Saturday (again ...) :(

Only been to Scotland twice.

The last time we were there we camped near Cairngorm Mountian. The whole Cairngorm National Park area was really nice.

Just back from a week there. 3rd or 4th vist for hols, and can totally endorse what Andy says. The place is spectacular, especially north of the line from Edi to Glasgow roughly. West coast and highlands the best for scenery. Reliatively empty too.
Midges bother some people but don't seem to like my blood :dance: but don't forget the umbrella.

I love the place and would move near the Cairngorms tomorrow if I could. We stayed in Newtonmore, about 12 miles south west of Aviemore.
