    Decided that a visit to the west coast was in order, so headed out early doors and rolled another 260 miles under the wheels of the CB5X.

    This picture was taken along a track near Glen Oykel

    And this one a bit further along . . .

    This view needs no introduction . . . but for those that have not yet travelled north of the wall (or the central belt) it’s Loch Broom viewed from near the Corrieshalloch gorge.

    Took a wander out once the rain had eased and caught some of the colour changes going on as the frosts start to bite . . .

    Went east for a change (and to avoid the forecast wetness that was supposed to be heading in from the west). As far as this place . . .

    [​IMG]

    Former RAF weapons range tower at Rosehearty. It over looked a sea range that the Buccaneer bombers used to practice very low level attacks on at sea barges. It was one of my jobs to “clear” the barges of any un-exploded bombs before they, the barges, were scrapped. And before anyone asks “Why didn’t they sink when bombed”, the barges were filled with high density foam . . . that we had to clear out lump by shredded lump.

    A little way west along the coast is New Aberdour beach, the grey bit on the left of the picture.

    [​IMG]

    This view is, to my mind, very reminiscent of the views you can experience when travelling along the Irish Wild Atlantic Way (well, it remind me of the bits I rode several years ago)

    Bit of a disheartening background there Bob :(

    Still, the bike looks good. Grand to see you getting out and about, even if it is only on tarmac :thumbsup:

    Those are bloody big gliders! You'd need a mahoosive elastic band to get any of them to fly. :)

    Nice one Michael, I love those spooky type photo's.

    I took this one of the moon two weeks ago, outside my workshop whilst putting the bikes away. Shame it was only an iPhone ! thumbnail_IMG_3561.jpg

    Loverly run out today with Ullapool the end of the “Out-Run”

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then there were beasts like these Jaggy-Heeds wandering alongside the road . . .
    [​IMG]
    Just before I came across these fellas grazing next to the road there was a very large herd of the beasts well away from the road, all heading for the hill tops.

    [​IMG]

    A little under 250miles covered on predominantly wet roads, under ever clearing skies . . . which was very nice (but I’m glad I had my heated inner gloves plugged in).

    Only over the final dozen miles before home did rain actually drop on me. Still a great day for a ride.
