Ooot & aboot today . . .
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.
A little detour on the way to work on a lovely fresh morning

Took a wander out once the rain had eased and caught some of the colour changes going on as the frosts start to bite . . .
Found a nice little lane the other day...
It's , erm, flat
Bike looking sweet though
Yeah we don’t do 3D over here, I have to go abroad to get some decent hills under my wheels.
We do get some decent colours this time of year though.
Couple from a run this afternoon along the northern side of the Spey . . .
. . . and this one from a favourite brew stop spot . . .
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 . . .
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.
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)
I would agree with you there Steve, as you know I did the whole WAW thing a few years ago...........................brilliant run.
A couple taken this morning whilst out working
Ballindalloch Castle west lodge
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
Those are bloody big gliders! You'd need a mahoosive elastic band to get any of them to fly.

Another little snapshot from yesterday
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 !
Loverly run out today with Ullapool the end of the “Out-Run”
Then there were beasts like these Jaggy-Heeds wandering alongside the road . . .
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.
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.
Looks like a good days ride.
