BARRIE ROBSON SCOTTISH LONG WEEKENDER

Tour Overview

Join us on our annual expedition into Scotland and sample the finest Scottish hospitality and maybe a couple of glasses of the local tipple. We are hoping that this year, we have more freedom to fully experience all that Scotland has to offer! This year we are focussing on the east coast and the Cairngorms.

Meet up at Barrie Robson Motorrad for a coffee before departing. We are heading north via the Galloway Forest and the fantastic Glentrool Road.   Our first night is spent south of Glasgow.   The following morning we are off early riding the QE pass in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park with a stop at Loch Katrine. From here we are heading for the Cairngorms National Park via the Bridge of Balgie and the iconic Killin Waterfalls.  We are spending the night in Aberdeen on the North Sea Coast.

The Cairngorms are a motorcycling nirvana and we spend the whole of the next day enjoying it.  The Spittal of Glenshee, The Tomintoul Road and Braemar are al en route.  We are spending the night on the Moray Firth. From here we are riding General Wades Military Road along the shores of Loch Ness. There is a chance to visit the Commando Monument and riding iconic Glencoe before heading further south and our home for the night in the Scottish Borders.

Day five and the trip is not over yet. We are heading south via the Kielderhead National Nature Reserve. From here it is time to head home with fond memories of the great riding and scenery that Scotland has to offer.

Simply marvellous. Great routes, great scenery and great tour companions. A real sense if camaraderie. Thank you.
