North Coast 500

Post by White Exec » Mon Aug 28, 2017 1:00 pm

For me, this starts tomorrow, with an early start from home here in Andalucia.
A day's drive to Burgos in northern Spain, then next day to an overnight in Poitiers, France.
Then on to Caen-Portsmouth and a day with family in Hampshire.
Next day, Stirling.
Day after, the really fun drive can start: Stirling - Trossachs - Tyndrum - Rannoch Moor - Glencoe - Ballachulish - Fort William . . . . for a noon rendezvous with Davie from FCF.
We're going to share the XM for the coastal West Highland run. What better way to travel?

So, just 2000 miles to Ft.Wm., 500 round the top, and another 2000 back home, and a well deserved oil change (on top of the 1000 already done).

Looking forward to it.

Looking forward to the oil change?? :o

It sounds like a lot of fun, and further north than I have ventured. :D

A definite non-sequitur - well swatted, Mike!
No, oil changes don't come any easier or quicker than the 2.5, but hardly a highlight of the year.

I'm sure a few photos will follow; Davie's pretty quick at posting, as you know. ;)
