UK, Scotland, 21 – 27 June 2019

From Somerset I rode north to Edinburgh, 7.5 hours with 2 stops for petrol and no rain the whole way, a first. Normally when travelling this route I get wet but it was a cold ride 15-17c combined with the wind chill and I did not wear my heated gear.

Day trip to Killin and Calander

Scottish Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh. Grey and wet outside, a good day to stay indoors.

My bike was parked in the car park in front of the house when I heard the alarm go off. I went outside and found that a car had reversed into my bike and knocked it over. The driver was a Driving Instructor hahaha and he was driving the car he gives lessons in. So my day was occupied with riding to a Suzuki Dealer and getting a written estimate to fix the damage which was mainly cosmetic. His insurance is going to pay for the damage and the matter has been settled. The main thing is that the bike can still be ridden, no problem.

Day trip to original Falkland and Perth, they are much closer together than their namesakes hahaha.

First stop Falkland, a very small and quaint village.

Next stop Perth a much bigger place.

A visit to Linlithgow where Mary, Queen of Scots was born.
