Default Highlands trip May 2018.

After two trips and two years research and planning I am pleased to announce I now feel ready to lead a CaDAM group tour to the Scottish Highlands in May 2018.

Local anecdotal evidence suggests May is the month which sees the lowest rainfall.

The trip will cover approximately 1700 miles over 7 days and will incorporate some taxing and testing sections of single track, hairpin bends, steep ascents and descents, and some of the most spectacular scenery our great nation has to offer.

The itinerary is below. I have pre-booked the three venues we will stay at and will need a small deposit for each to confirm attendance.

Saturday 5th leave home and ride to Black Bull Hotel, Lauder (roughly £80-£90 between 2 per night per room B&B).

Sunday 6th arrive at Tore Black Isle Berries bunkhouse (about £25 each guest per night B&B).

Monday 7th day trip ride out over the Bealach na Bà Applecross pass (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bealach_na_Bà) and explore the lower section some the west coast returning to the bunkhouse at Tore.

Tuesday 8th ride the North Coast 500 route to Durness via JoG and stay at Smoo Cave Hotel (roughly £80-£90 between 2 per night per room B&B).

Wednesday 9th explore the upper section of the west coast returning to Smoo Cave Hotel.

Thursday 10th ride down to Black Bull Hotel, Lauder via Tore.

Friday 11th return home.

This trip is open to all but I have limited places of up to 19 due to restricted accommodation availability.

Contact me by email at [email protected] to reserve a place.
