Peter Berrie has joined us on all three previous tours. This is what he says about the 2015 tour :-


Not even the horrendous weather could dampen the enjoyment of this Tour.
When you consider it is organised by one man it is exceptional
This is the third Tour I have completed with Dave and it still amazes me the areas of Scotland I have taken for granted.
The scenery is second to none, even in the rain.
If anyone is thinking of taking part in an organised Tour then this is
the one to do. Brilliantly organised and the routes suite everyone even
if you think you can't climb, by the end of this your fear of hills will
be gone. The accommodation in the hostels was excellent, and what can I
say about the food, all cooked for us by our own chefs, felt like
professionals.
If I could have scored more than 10 I would have, can't wait till next year

 Day 1, Saturday. From Stirling we avaid the A9 on our way to Perth and then ride on through Blairgowrie and Glenshee to our over night stay at the SYHA hostel in Braemar. ROUTE LINK

Day 2 We leave Royal Deeside and surmount the Lecht ski station to Speyside and our overnight at the Cairngorm Christian Centre, Kincraig. We have plenty of time to enjoy the relativly short ride, though if you want to make it hard you can ride up and down the road to the Cairngorm ski centre while the others enjoy coffe and cake. ROUTE LINK

Day 3 We will have time to visit the open air highland folk museum at Newtonmore on our way to Corpach nr Fort William. The day ends with a flat easy ride alongside the Caledonian canal, but if your bike has very delicate wheels and tyres you can use the nearby tarmac road instead. ROUTE LINK.

Day 4 Scenic overload as we pass Glenfinnan, Morvern, Ardnamurchan on over the sea to Mull for the luxury hostel that will be our home for the next two nights. ROUTE LINK


Day 5. The plan is to ride 43 spectacular, but not too hilly miles each way to visit the iconic Iona Abbey, but an easy day doing whatever you like is an alternative should you prefer. ROUTE LINK


Day 6 Back to the mainland and a ride in the beautifull back roads from Oban to our favourite Torran Bay hostel on the shore of Loch Awe. Shortcut possible if the week is begining to take it's tole on your legs. ROUTE LINK

Day 7, We enjoy the full length of Loch Awe, on the easier side, as we head back to Stirling, a long day to end with. ROUTE LINK
