My best Road Trip ever!

Post by MefiEcosse » Thu Aug 10, 2017 10:08 am

Left home at 7:15 and caught the ferry at 10.00am.
Got home last night at 9.00pm
Very long day but well worth the journey and every 350ish mile.

Then the 1/2 hour or so drive to Sanna through the old volcano!
Lots of single track roads but plenty parts were you can see well ahead and enjoy the drive at a decent pace!

A couple more quick stops on the return leg but feel I missed so many photo opportunities on the way.
Need a return trip next year and take 2 or 3 days to enjoy it more! :D

An absolutely fabulous part of the world ! I've walked, mountain biked and driven it a fair bit over the years. I 'cut my teeth' walking in the area with my father as a boy. Lots of emotional and sentimental attachment for me to this landscape. My fathers ashes are by Stob Dearg/Buchaille Etive Mor in one of your photos. Great memories of great days. Thanks for posting your superb photos. :thumbsup:

reminds me of a roadtrip I treated my gf to when I drove my ancient Fiat 127 from Essex up to Oban-the excursion to the isle of Mull was worthwhile (as was the whole exhaust falling off the car & trying to refit it by the side of a narrow lane)
I also remember the alternator packing in just after leaving Essex & managing over 200miles on battery charge alone before managing to borrow a charger for the night! After fixing both of those issues the cambelt snapped at the end of my road in Chelmsford the day after we got back destroying the engine :oops:
I've tried to blot some of these memories from my mind as they were so painful :rofl:
