Tour of Scotland – Part 3

When I got up in the morning, I got tucked into the buffet at the hostel, and headed on my way to the Highlands (well, part of them, before I stopped in a wee place called Aberchirder.

The ride up was really nice, and the scenery was breathtaking, absolutely beautiful.  Loch Lomond was so pretty, If you’re ever in Scotland, its a must see, some of the nicest scenery around.

The ride up in the direction of Fort William was great too, nice weather, not much slow traffic, great scenery too.  Fort William itself was pretty nice, and I got to see Ben Nevis (or one or some of the peaks surrounding it) too.

My motorbike wasnt just going right, it felt a bit glitchy at times, but it still moved.  After leaving Fort William, I road through Cairngorm national park,  another place where the scenery is out of this world!

I eventually got up to Aberchirder, way up in the north east of Scotland, and it seemed a bit quaint, very quiet.  The place I was staying in was pretty good, The hotel staff seemed really helpful (one of the staff loved his bikes too!), and in a way I thought this little village/hamlet kind of reminded me of Emmerdale.
