Scotland 2 weeks of wilderness

Scotland is certainly a wild country and Scotish people are a wild and friendly bunch. We just happen to be there for the world cup and in a noisy pub for the famous match where Australia won by a point because of a bad referee decision…..not funny at all, more funny for them the day France was beaten by 60 points by Ireland.

Anyone who like driving or riding must include Scotland in their bucket list as it is a paradise of wild scenery and windy road, the weather can be a bit tricky but it is worth the trouble.

As long as I live i don’t want to see another castel or distillery. And no we din’t see Jessie the Lock nest monster. :-(

After a week i started to understand their language and i even told Suzanne it is like an Australian accent !!!! Even the sheep looks beautiful, it is probably why Scotland is so popular with Zealanders…and Frenchman…

A must also is the Whisky Trail, we did that but too drunk to take photos, anyway you see a distillery you see them all !!!!

Scotland 500 miles road

Route 66 is arguably the most famous road in America, but can Scotland compete with the iconic Route 66 that stretches from Chicago to Los Angeles? In a bid to show visitors what the far north of Scotland has to offer, the North Highland Initiative, backed by Prince Charles, has launched the spectacular North Coast 500 route (NC500), which they hope will become as iconic as the American highway. The stunning touring route will start in the Highland’s capital, Inverness, and snake past some of Scotland’s impressive coastal and mountain scenery. The coastal route is said to be ideal for drivers, motorcyclists and even walkers who want to discover the far north of ScotlandThe coastal NC500 route has been created to showcase what the far north of Scotland has to offer, including local food, drink, accommodation and activities
