With only one day of holiday to play with,I decided to try out the planned route for the proposed Scottish trip.A few lads on a range of bikes kept me company.
The rendezvous point was Tesco at the Fort Road Bridge,this gave 3 of us,Bol Blackbird and 600 Bandit,a 90 mile run on the A701.It was a chilly start with some fog in places but was still a great start to the day.
There is a new bridge being built on the Forth,we rode over the old one for possibly the last time with a fantastic view of the new towers and the new approaches.
By now the sun was out and there was not a cloud in the sky,it stayed that way all day.
Another Blackbird a Firestorm a Triumph Daytona and a Z650 had met us and we ran the fantastic A823 up to Muthill then picked up the A822 which took us over to Dunkeld
then the A923 to Blairgowrie.Next we picked up the A93 (which can only be described as spectacular)through Glen Shee and Royal Deeside past Balmoral then left to Cock Bridge on the A939 then the Lecht
On to Tomintoul,Granton on Spey and our overnight stop Aviemore.
Total miles for the day 265
