The Grand World tour of Scotland

Hi All I have been thinking about next years riding season (Yes Already)
And after a short chat last night at the Shoreham meet. I thought I would gauge the interest.

I’m thinking of putting together a Grand World tour of Scotland to encompass the following.

A weeks camping/touring prior to and including the Wallace rally at Stirling.

Depart Sussex a.m. Saturday 22nd May 2010

Saturday Night. Free Camping at the Tanhill Inn. (Accommodation available)
Sunday. On into Scotland and the Isle of Bute. Free camping lots of B&Bs Possibly a party BBQ with Islanders mcc 3 of whom are HDRCGB Members.. TBC.
Monday. Free day to explore the island.
Tuesday. move on upto Fort Augustus in the great glen passing The Rest and be Thankful, Loch Lomond, Glencoe Ben Nevis and Fort William. Camping £6 pppn but accommodation available @ £15/£20 pppn
Wednesday. Free day to explore the Great glen, Loch Ness and even the Isle of Skye.
Thursday. Head south past Aviemore and down the A9 to Stirling for the Wallace Rally. PM Your email address for Booking form. £20 per club member
Friday & Saturday. At the Rally with the opportunity to explore the many points of interest in the area with even Edinburgh within striking distance.

Sunday / Monday. Your choice. The home run last year I left Stirling at 1000 in the morning and was Back in Horsham before 8 in the evening.

So what I’m asking is are there any HDRCGB members interested in the ultimate Scotland tour taking in the Lowlands, Islands and Highlands. The chance to see some of the most spectacular scenery in the world and see some of the out of the way places that tourists don’t get to.

Any Takers.

Sorry Charlie - all our funds are going towards the Australia trip in Jan.
You may find your trip overlaps the usual French weekend

ride through Scotland and meet up with old and new friends.

Hi buddy - There's a few of us up here in Inverness, and I think you could employ us as "Tour Guides" while you're on your "Northern Bit".

If you're interested I'll keep a look out for this thread and once you've got more of a plan together I'll make contact...???

p.s. - Why the Fek would you want to go to Edinburgh.?? :frown:

Day one and already a fair response to the question, “who is up for this”. Just to clarify one or two points.
This is not even at the planning stage yet but if enough interest is shown I will put it together. These sort of things don’t just happen so early planning is a must and No the pixies don’t do all the leg work, eh Ken.
John and Nick;
It would of course be open to anyone (HDRCGB) who wants to come along. (The more the better.) I posted in Coasters as I’m an AAR and at our AGM we were asked to put together more rides.
Sam;
I would of course be asking regions and members along the way for assistance be it as guides or just local knowledge, best camping, pubs, grub stops etc, it will all help to make this a success.
If I can get the numbers right I will approach ferry companies and petrol stations for support sponsorship and subsidised fares. (No promises but If you don’t ask you don’t get.)
I hope this answers the questions about the run so far.
Karl, Simon;
I know that there are more weekend events each year than there are weekends in the year so we cannot do them all but I thought in the present difficult times riders might like the opportunity to have a cheep break and see some of the beauty that’s hidden on our own doorstep.

Hi Wormy
Early days yet but as I recall there is some uni thingy on the same weekend as the Wallace (could be rugby) but I know my brother had no luck with B&Bs, near the site for that weekend as He left it late trying to book, so again early bird and all that.
Aye Charlie

p.s. - Why the Fek would you want to go to Edinburgh.?? :frown:[/quote]

Why would you want to visit The Athens of the North ? mmmm...

Read this, and wish you where here.:439:

As the summer days draw to a close, the russet autumn colours breathe new life into Edinburgh & Lothians with the backdrop and amber golds of Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden, the bracing beach walks along Edinburgh's coast and countryside, the invigorating autumn air of the Pentland Hills and country parks like Beecraigs near Linlithgow.
Indulge yourself indoors too with a warming visit to the Scotch Whisky Experience or Edinburgh's lowland malt distillery, Glenkinchie, in Pencaitland, East Lothian. You'll be spoilt for choice with the vast array of places to eat with our many eatscotland eateries throughout the area, offering seasonal, locally sourced produce. Think tasty berries and hearty puddings! To keep you entertained, autumn presents a full programme of events from the sounds of Brass in the Park and The International Storytelling Festival to the colourful displays from Scottish Ballet's autumn season and the National Galleries of Scotland seasonal collections.

READ THIS

As I sit here,
beneath the velux,
The rain makes that pitter patter,
much like 1000 drummers beat a military tattoo,
beating out the rythm,
"Yer in Fekin Scotland noo, Yer in fekin Scotland noo..."

And aye - it rains in Edinburgh too. So when the "southerners" are up at the Wallace - they should enjoy a run around Rural Perthshire and see the sights, And if they want to spend vast sums of money on Tourist Tat, then me and my mates will bring some along, no need to risk their health breathing the polluted city air :D

Now Now Dave and Sam play fair :439: I have been telling the boys and girls down here what a hospitable lot we are and that there is no more clan or turf wars, just fantastic places to see and things to do. So at the very least lets get them north of the border before we start the next uprising.

Well, it's very nice that so many people like to keep an eye on what's going on in Coasterland ... innit :D

Sounds like a good trip Charlie; a shame it clashes dates with the French weekend, however some have a taste for Whisky rather than Champagne so there's likely to be a few interested parties from DaSuniSarfcoast. Anyway it's only a day in and it looks like you're heading towards it being a National Club Run, not just a Coasters Run. :smile:

Having checked my diary the timing is a no go for me as I have a family wedding, but I'll give whatever support I can beforehand. :)

Well now. Well now! Well now baldric I can see a cunning plan coming together. As there is quite a bit of interest and that’s just from those who pop in to the Coasters section.
So I have started to make some enquiries about camping, locations and discounts etc so I will probably now start a provisional list so that I can get a rough idea of numbers and that way I will have some bargaining power when I talk to people.
Those that have already shown an interest I will add now and then add to the list as the names roll in. Don’t panic the list is not binding at this time.
I already have some great ideas and have been offered support via PMs as well as those listed in the thread. So already a the plan is forming if only in my head at this time but I will keep you all informed as things start to come together.

So I will get this moved up and made a sticky thingy, me thinks. Phil over to you.

Cheers Charlie thats why I've got this one rolling this early. My plan is to book tickets as soon as I have an Idea of numbers:D

The Wallace (caledoniahc.com) The dates are the 27th - 31st May so that means that The Grand World tour of Scotland would start on Saturday the 22nd May 2010 the Meet point will be somewhere in the Lake District ready to party Saturday night.

My idea is that if I do have the time available, then after Stirling to head back north and take in the northern coastline of Scotland. I hear that it is an awesome place to visit, obviously second in awsomeness to Isle of Bute and the Highlands. :smile:

Ah got your drift now. This started as a break on the run up to the Wallace and over a few beers became "The Grand world tour of Scotland." After giving it some thought the suggested route would take in the lowlands Islands and Highlands. I'm sure you will agree a lot for these poor southerners to take in. Having said that one of those who has shown an interest has said that after the Wallace he plans on heading North for a few more day touring. So I will point him at your post and he may get in touch.

Hi.
All you intrepid explorers here is the News today.
I have spent some time on the Phone to Campsites and Pubs “ Up North” (thanks Hippy) and have to say that Camping and Caravanning sites are a Bunch of ------ :mad: but I wont I will just say that they were not very helpful. Some would not take Bikes? Some would not accept single sex groups? And others wanted us to pay a minimum of two nights. (Even after I explained that we would probably spend more in the club house than they normally take for the whole of May.) :frown:
Anyway that brings me on to a suggested meeting point at the Highest Pub in the UK. :D Meet there on Saturday the 22nd May 2010 and depart on the Tour 10:00 Sunday 23rd
The Tan hill inn. I will not bore you with the details (but will attach a link)
I have had a chat with them and they would love us to come, 10 or 40 bikes not a problem. There is some accommodation available and free camping, also if it’s tipping down or you can’t be bothered with the tent there is a strong chance of crashing out in the Barn/function room. :439:
So please have a look at the site and let me have your views. Sorry about the link but it will work.
If you look at their pic's then again sorry as the only biker I saw was HOG.

There is some accommodation available and free camping, also if it’s tipping down or you can’t be bothered with the tent there is a strong chance of crashing out in the Barn/function room. :439:


Okay, this has gone on for long enough. I do know how to put my tent up, so there! I've watched enough people do it for me this year. :wink:

hi.
All you intrepid explorers here is the news today.
I have spent some time on the phone to campsites and pubs “ up north” (thanks hippy) and have to say that camping and caravanning sites are a bunch of ------ :mad: But i wont i will just say that they were not very helpful. Some would not take bikes? Some would not accept single sex groups? And others wanted us to pay a minimum of two nights. (even after i explained that we would probably spend more in the club house than they normally take for the whole of may.) :frown:
Anyway that brings me on to a suggested meeting point at the highest pub in the uk. :d meet there on saturday the 22nd may 2010 and depart on the tour 10:00 sunday 23rd
the tan hill inn. I will not bore you with the details (but will attach a link)
i have had a chat with them and they would love us to come, 10 or 40 bikes not a problem. There is some accommodation available and free camping, also if it’s tipping down or you can’t be bothered with the tent there is a strong chance of crashing out in the barn/function room. :439:
So please have a look at the site and let me have your views. Sorry about the link but it will work.
If you look at their pic's then again sorry as the only biker i saw was hog.
And don't worry about the snow! Thats just getting you ready for a scottish summer.

Update.

I have been asked to answer some concerns and to point out that if this tour comes off which it very much looks like it will, It will not be a race :5EC74F3451154916B1D and the main pack will be travelling within the speed limits. There will be ample stops for food, smoke and pictures. Having said that if anyone would like to Freewheel they will as always be free to do so and night locations maps and directions will be available.

Fuel is readily available in Scotland even on Sundays. (I will have some spare hose) :D

There will be a group of us leaving from Pease Pottage Services on The Saturday morning. Route yet to be decided but most likely up the 23/25/A1M/A66. there will no doubt be several pick-up points along the route North. These will be agreed and posted nearer the date but you are not obliged to join the run North you can make your own way to Tan Hill as long as you are there ready to roll at 10:00 on Sunday morning if running with the main pack.:saythat:

Essential items to take with you. Waterproofs, sun block and Bank Card. That about covers that.
It looks like a couple of days may be wild camping so a stove and brew kit would be good but we will always be within hitting distance of Cafe / Pub.

Again I hope this covers the first round of Questions :D

The Grand World tour of Scotland

Hi All I have been thinking about next years riding season (Yes Already)
And after a short chat last night at the Shoreham meet. I thought I would gauge the interest.

I’m thinking of putting together a Grand World tour of Scotland to encompass the following.

A weeks camping/touring prior to and including the Wallace rally at Stirling.

Depart Sussex a.m. Saturday 15th May 2010

Saturday Night. Camping in the Lake District. TBC.
Sunday. On into Scotland and the Isle of Bute. Possibly a party BBQ with Islanders mcc 3 of whom are HDRCGB Members.. TBC.
Monday. Free day to explore the island.
Tuesday. move on upto Fort Augustus in the great glen passing The Rest and be Thankful, Loch Lomond, Glencoe Ben Nevis and Fort William.
Wednesday. Free day to explore the Great glen, Loch Ness and even the Isle of Skye.
Thursday. Head south past Aviemore and down the A9 to Stirling for the Wallace Rally. TBC.
Friday & Saturday. At the Rally with the opportunity to explore the many points of interest in the area with even Edinburgh within striking distance.

Sunday / Monday. Your choice. The home run last year I left Stirling at 1000 in the morning and was Back in Horsham before 8 in the evening.

So what I’m asking is are there any Coasters interested in the ultimate Scotland tour taking in the Lowlands, Islands and Highlands. The chance to see some of the most spectacular scenery in the world and see some of the out of the way places that tourists don’t get to.

Any Takers.


Count me in, Ive got a spare afternoon.....:wink:

Aye Charlie

A rolling stone gathers no shit! :60277EB7B04744289C0

Ok.
As we are scattered to the four corners of the country its a bit pointless sending me money for tickets for the Wallace Rally, for me to then send on. Therefore tickets for the rally shall remain an individual responsibility (Davy has set aside 40, for us after that its first come first served) it would be helpful and more cost effective if each area could get together and send a single payment. (Coasters and anyone else attending the Dragon we will sort this out at the next North area meet on the 18th Nov)


Send requests and payment to:

Davy Meiklejohn
Caledonia Harley Club
PO Box 20146
Stirling
FK7 0YF

Tickets do not officially go on sale until mid/late Feb 2010 but now that Davy is in the picture you can send for them anytime.

Please ensure that you mark your request HDRCGB The Grand World tour of Scotland and list the names of those club members the tickets are for as the price for club members is cheaper than the standard entry. I believe the price has been held the same as last year £20 for Members.
also enclose a self addressed stamped envelope.
I will post the cut off date for payment when I get it from Davy I will also post when the 40 tickets have gone so that any last min dot com triers can get a move on. :wink: I think that covers that however any questions feel free to contact me.
Aye Charlie

After thought Once you have book a ticket for the Wallace and are coming on the HDRCGB The Grand World tour of Scotland please let me know as confirmation of attendance and I will update the Whos who list. :D

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Saturday 22nd May 2010
From your start point? You pass from the hustle bustle of Southern / Central England into the gentle rolling countryside of Yorkshire, (Let the Fun Begin!)
As you continue north to Scotch corner (A1M) and hang a left onto the one and only UK Route 66 (well the A66 anyway). gradually climbing into the breathtaking beauty of Durham, Cumbria and back into the North Yorkshire dales. You arrive at the first night stopover and meeting place, the Tan Hill Inn (Highest Pub in the UK)

Day 2: Sunday 23rd
Breakfast and a 10 O’clock start and after a short run down the 66 we join the M6 to get us up and over the border. Then you will experience your first taste of Scotland with its hills, stunning glens, bubbling rivers and sweeping open roads. These are the lowlands. Now we can head for the coast. Taking time out for lunch in Largs and some real fish and chips (and maybe even a battered Mars Bar or a Machaggis) After lunch we continue heading NW, contouring the beautiful Firth of Clyde coastline before arriving at Wemyss Bay to catch the Ferry over the Clyde to Rothesay, on the Isle of Bute. The crossing takes about 30 mins and as you approach the pier you will be awestruck by the picturesque appearance of the Victorian water front, open promenade and the palm trees lining it, all in their summer splendour.

Day 3: Monday 24th
Today is a free day, you can do your own thing, whether its a ride around the whole island, taking in the peaceful, pure and timeless scenery of this oasis of calm, happily sitting sheltered by the Argyll peninsular and enjoying the warmth of the gulf stream or time out just to wonder around the historic town which was once the Seat favoured by Scottish Royalty and this is still enjoyed today with Prince Charles being the Duke of Rothesay. 1000 War Manorial, 1130 The Port, 1300 lunch Buffet at the Kingarth Hotel £4 per head, 1500 Mount Stuart House Photo shoot, 1830 BBQ at the Backpakers

Day 4: Tuesday 25th
Again after a hearty breakfast (Don’t FFS ask for a “full English” as you have no idea what you might end up with.) We set off at 10’ O’clock and head for the north of the island and the wee ferry, this crossing takes just a few mins, returning us to the mainland. Then we head north along quiet A & B roads, hugging the unspoilt west coast, taking in the grandeur of the Southern Highlands. you will pass secluded bays with golden sands, quaint villages and rugged terrain. Before continuing inland. The carefully selected route displays Scotland in all its glory, whilst allowing you to ride on some of the area’s most scenic and quietest roads. Highlights include the Rest and be thankful, then the shores of Loch Lomond, you will be enthralled by the sheer magnitude of Glen Coe, steeped in its bloody history. You will soon pass the breath-taking sight of the UK’s highest peak, Ben Nevis, Passing through Fort Billy and into the great glen then on up to Fort Augustus. Where we stop for two nights.

Day 5: Wednesday 26th
Another Free day. From Fort Augustus, Scotland is yours for the choosing. All within a days ride you could visit, John O’Groats or The Isle of Sky or The world famous Whisky Trail or perhaps you might fancy a day trip up Loch Ness in search of Auld Nessy herself or you may choose to explore the local area on foot or just Chillout. Whatever you chose it will be another fantastic day. 1000 Commando Monument then onto the Jacobite Monument and possibly on towards Sky

Day 6 Thursday 27th
Yes you’ve got it Breakfast and engines running at 10 O’clock. We set off East towards Inverness the Capital of the Highlands where we join the A9 south bound which takes us through the Monadhliath / Cairngorm / Grampian Mountains. Most of this run is in the magnificent twisting glens that separate these high peaks. This route will take us passed famous place names the like of Culloden Aviemore, Fuel and distillery tour hereDalwinnie, the Bridge of Allan, Perth and then onto the M9 for a short jump down to Wallace country and Stirling.

Day 7 Friday 28th – Day 8 Saturday 29th
The Wallace Rally (I’m sure this part needs no explaining.)

Day 9 Sunday 30th
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. But hold on not quite! For
those wanting to break the run south I have sorted Freecamping at Walesby
(The site of the 2009 international)

Day 10 Bank holiday Monday 31st

Thanks Ken Aye it looks like a good plan, the finer details will fall into place as the dark winter nights pass us by but to tell you the truth I'm already looking forward to it with a passion. Not just because for me its a home run but that its pulling club members together from all over for will be a fantastic "Old school" run. :439:
Aye Charlie

ps I have had several other members stating an interest but cannot commit to it yet. Gentle reminder to everyone we only have 40 reserved tickets for the Wallace and they are going fast, by my reckoning about half have gone already, thereafter its "first come first served".

Just a few words of advice on how to deal with the worst thing imaginable: The Scottish Midge. NO fancy, foreign anti-mosquito stuff seems to work, and the secret and favoured potion used in Scotland is - believe it or not - Avon's "Skin So Soft". It's an oily spray, and believe me it works. It keeps those midges (could be millions of 'em, clouds of 'em just appear - they love tents and beards). Midges can and will ruin a night. You can't buy it locally, apart from overpriced tourist gift shops sometimes, so I would heartily recommend every one going on the Grand World Tour of Scotland to get hold of a bottle of it. This sounds daft, but it's the stuff to use and it works.

Avon. Skin So Soft. Plenty time to source it: you'll be glad you did.

Luckily I use it already. I know it works cos I put it on my arse & I've never had a midge near it :D

Hi Mate
Not at all but I thought it would keep the thread alive and give those real riders an insight into what to expect on the run, as to find the answer you have to search the web and all the questions are on or very near the route.
OK. and there is a prize for the top score. :wink:

Anyone, but leave it a bit to give all a chance to look and search the web or we're defeating the object which is to give those going on the Tour an insight into the splendor and glory they can expect on the run. However you can always pose a question by PM to me with the answer you expect and I will post it.

Ok! So the easy question has gone. Now there was another Scotsman called Andrew of fame in Scottish history who is often overlooked but as we are going to the Rally perhaps we should know who he was. :D

That would be Andrew de Moray, who fought with William Wallace at the battle of Stirling.

Point, to Father Jack, well done that man. In fact Andrew de Moray was Joint commander in chief with Wallace at the battle of Stirling and later died of wounds received during the battle.

Aye Bob the questions are all easy if you ken the answer but thanks for not answering too early as you say its more for those attending to have a look and get a feel for the places they will be passing and stopping at and make plans on things they would like to do and see there.
