    Scotland for a week or so

    Not sure where to put this but this does seem like the right place and people to ask.

    Me and the wife (if she says yes) are off to Scotland mid September for a 2 week road trip.

    We are leaving Devon on Monday and heading for the Lake district for a couple of days and then on to Scotland for the remainder of the our time.

    We've not really set out any plan of action or where to go. Just going to wing it really.

    After Bordster's post (here) we are going to take the Mofat to Leadburn road and in to Edinburgh. After that we are open to ideas and suggestions from you all.

    Scott.....pop in and say hello mate as I live slap bang on the A701 just outside Blythbridge. Easy to find. You'll love the road, twisty and very quick. Stop off at the 'Devils Beef-Tub' aswell after you go thro Moffat and just take in the scenery. If your lucky you might see some low-flying planes that literally fly below you as they use the end of the valley as target practise. Im getting married on the 15th September and off to the Maldives for 2 weeks so might miss you. Drop me a PM when your coming though. We might still be here.

    As for things to do well all depends on what you like really. See the sights in Edinburgh and if you can go up North up the A9 to Aviemore and the Cairngoms and then Inverness. Do the Whiskey trail if your into that. You wont be bored I can tell you that.

    If you do go up North and up to Inverness nip over to Skye but take the back road from Inverness to Skye. This is classed as one of the best biking roads in Europe. You'll see why IF you do go.

    I will do mate, we should be passing you before the 15th.
    We found a nice place in the lake district to stay at for 2 days, then we are off to Scotland around the 13th.

    Cool. Thanks.

    Any one know of any places to hire boats for the day?
    I really want to do a boat trip on a Loch.

    Thinking of sites we'd like to see and the suggestions people have made.
    I've come up with this rough idea of what we are doing.
    Stop overs and time will determine how much of this we get to do.

    A couple of thoughts to adjust your route a little

    From Coupar Angus (or from 'J' head north to Kirriemuir, then the A926 to Blaigowrie) head north via Blairgowrie and the A93 to Braemar instead of the A9.
    The road through the Grampians is nothing short of stunning. Great driving roads through the mountains, and the boys-in-blue aren't conducting 'nick-the-tourist' campaigns every other day like they do on the A9.

    Then from Braemar toward Ballater, seeing a little of Royal Deeside, then take a left turn onto the A939 to Grantown-on-Spey via the famous Tomintoul road. You quickly understand why it is the first road to be closed every winter - it's breath-takingly open and exposed! You then rejoin the A9 via Carrbridge on the A938.

    This diversion should only add about 2 hours to your original route and is well worth it.

    One thing to bear in mind is the roads up here are not as fast as down south once you get up past Perth. You will take longer to get anywhere - especially on the West coast roads!

    Whatever roads you take, you should have a great time on the Northern roads, and the scenery is great.

    I'm pretty sure there are a couple of Distilleries around Grantown you might want to visit enroute!

    The roads are fine, you just need about 600hp to overtake the morons driving along them at 40 for no reason :P

    Yeah the A9 can be a nightmare but is also very fast on a good day. There are 2 gatso cameras on it from Perth to Aviemore....1 Northbound and 1 southbound and both visibly painted. What I find funny are the tourists who stop to take photos whenever they see a speed camera sign as they think its a safe place to snap away because its got a picture of a camera on it........doh!!!!

    Remember and take your passport and a kilt with you......oh sorry a skirt for the south of the border people as they wont let you in at the border crossing without them.

    That's just stupid.
    I'll try not to do it.


    What is the weather going to be like in the middle of September up round my route?
    The misses has a stupid blood (Raynaud's phenomenon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and not sure if I need to pack loads of warm items for her.

    Don't forget lads, I drive a TDI Automatic avant. So driving fast or sporty is not an option. Relaxed chilled it my driving style.

    The amendments made to your route are the roads which i rate as some of the best in scotland and if you can try the kyle of lochalsh road to skye. As for weather you may be very lucky and get the summer weather as last year september was better than july august.

    Basicaly you will see all 4 seasons in 1 day, especially up near the Lecht area (Tamintoul road), i would take shorts as well as a Berghuas as you will probably use them both during your time here.

    Welcome to Scotland! Gods country, crazy weather:-)

    Raynauds is the posh name for it!

    We got married 25th September in Aberdeenshire a couple of years back, and it was the hottest day of the year - mid-twenties. Alternatively it can be freezing. Check the forecast, but DO bring some warm clothing regardless. Something water-proof would be a smart plan too (Drowning is another name for Scottish Weather syndrome)

    Your Misses should be fine. I was diagnosed with Raynauds Syndrome (no disease) in my teens.My fingertips used to go grey-black at random cold times. It went away after 10 years or so.
    Gloves are good, and alcohol helped - Dr suggested brandy - but I would suggest the distilleries along your route!

    I was in the Lakes a couple of weeks ago w\ mrs. There's a lovely steam yacht on Coniston Water called 'The Gondola'. A trip around the lake on that is a pleasure ...the weight of it means it's not affected by choppiness ...or crazy kids on their catamaran sailing dinghy's losing control & ramming into the side! I think the Capt. had more steam coming out of his ears than the boat after that.

    The road between Windermere & Ullswater takes you up through low clouds on damp days, the scenery can be stunning on clear days.

    Also Aira Force waterfall up near Ullswater is a little climb, but it's worth it ...the sheer force of the (orange\brown) water coming over the falls is amazing & at the top there's a little fresh water spring feeding into it.

    Pack your shower coat & hiking boots.

    If you get a change get yourself along the 'Duke's Pass' (A821) around the Aberfoyle area taking in Loch Venachar and Loch Achray
    Google Maps
    Quite simply stunning scenery and lovely driving roads...

    If you do manage to head up towards Skye you MUST go to APPLECROSS and take the 'unclassified' mountain road over the hills.....;-) (I'm sure a few of the guys on here will agree)

    On the whisky front Glenfiddich has to be one of the best tours you can do. The cooperage isn't far away either

    Ha! I see your Glenfiddich (although it is closer to Scotts route), and raise you a Glendronach (It's within 10 minutes fast driving of home - and if you go there Scott, you'll HAVE to stop by me!!)

    I would also like to note the Aberdeen had the hottest day of 2012 yesterday (25.something), so it's looking good for your trip...........

    (BTW are you PlastiDipping the family before you come up as Midge protection?)

    If i was home, you could come to the seaside to see me, recently moved to a place called Largs!

    As for a boat excursion, visit Loch Lommond, dunno if boats are out is Sept usually, but its a beautiful place and some nice roads around it too, best on a sunny day!

    I would also like to note the Aberdeen had the hottest day of 2012 yesterday (25.something), so it's looking good for your trip...........

    (BTW are you PlastiDipping the family before you come up as Midge protection?)
    If we are passing and you're free, I guess we could pop in and say hello.

    And no, the plasti dip is staying at home or on the car. lol

    Well I just had Scott and his missus pop in for a couple of hours as they trek their way up the mighty Scotland. Was good to meet him and his better half and put a face to the name. The A701 did put a smile on his face. I do believe he brought the weather with him aswell as its still sunny here. Enjoy the rest of your holiday mate.

    Re: Scotland for a week or so

    That it is.
    Got out of the car a couple of times but it's far to windy. So left and carried on to Skye.
    We are sat here waiting for some food now.

    It is truly beautiful up here.
    Bits reminds ne of a higher version of Dartmoor.

    We will come again I think.
    Off to Dundee tomorrow I think. Not sure, see what happens.

    Staying in a B&B tonight. Proper bed and a proper shower. Can't wait.. lol
