    Thanks for posting that, Walt. I spent a lot of time in my youth hill-walking and climbing in Scotland, and recognize several of the locations and mountains.

    In 1996, I also rode from John O'Groats to Lands End...but on a Peugeot road bike...took a week, averaging about 100 miles per day.

      Nice. I drove from London to Loch Ness in an MGB-GT in the late 70s. No breakdowns! And I was riding a 61 Matchless G12 motorcycle as my daily go to work vehicle.
