probably one of the areas I wouldn't need a guide to, but wonderful roads/people; add to that wild camping and it's an awesome place to ride.

I have ridden lots in Scotland and when I do I'm always somehow surprised at how fantastic it is. It always seems better than I remember the last time. This book looks like a worthwhile read over the winter months to keep the appetite whetted  :1:
Thanks for the heads up TM  :031:

 Cape Breton, New Scotland.
 And obviously Photoshopped as the bikes are on the wrong side of the road  :015: .

Thanks for the kind words about the book, chaps.  Forums have been a big support - and I appreciate yours!
To answer the question about the picture - it was taken at Glen Docherty (on the A832), looking down towards Kinlochewe and Loch Maree.

That road is the driveway to Kinlochewe Service Station - here:https://www.kinlocheweservices.co.uk/

Check it out, give it a few seconds to unravel, you'll be impressed, it's what made me go there   :biker1:
