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:

But the trip was worth the effort? Hope the GF appreciated your efforts! :lol:
Sadly my gf is no longer with us, but it was a memorable trip thanks :)

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:

Looks like that's a trip going on my list ,by the sound of it a couple of overnight stops sound beneficial.
