Continuing on, after partaking in refreshments in Lairg, we headed off back to the west coast and Inshegra. As the scots would say "it had turned into a right dreich day", so no top down driving on this section. Col leads the way as we splash past some of best fishing lochs in Scotland.

Part 4 ...

The last part from the day, heading back to our hotel in Ullapool, it's just a shame the weather was deteriorating.

Hope @simplyslk is keeping up with your vids.

Mk loves the mountains.
The rain? Not so much, I guess.

Cheers, Davie.

Love having you along Marykay

Also, knowing you're riding with me keeps me from uttering profanities on camera when I get caught behind lane blockers etc..

Sunday we had an early start as we were leaving Ullapool and heading south to stay in Pitlochry. Rather than just sticking to the main roads, we detoured through Shieldaig taking in Glen Docherty and Glen Torridon on the way.

This is part 2 of our trip south to Pitlochry. Apologies for the poor lighting, it is due to my camera pointing slightly skyward causing it to expose for the sky rather than the land. DOH

Part three from Sunday, the famous Pass of the Cattle. The convoy had grown in numbers with the addition of Dave and Gareth, although we'd lost Russ while he ran Estella to the airport. After having had an excellent lunch in the Applecross Inn we set off up to the view point.

@DAVIETHESCAFF Many thanks for the tour Davie.

One request: as you are captioning these moments, would you put the forum user name (and their real name) when you highlight participants? Some we know by their real name but others we don't.

Thanks for doing/posting these vids

I was originally thinking about doing that Len, but then promptly forgot to do it whilst doing the captions.

I think it must be my age

Here is a list of the names mentioned and their forum name in the order they appear in Part 3 …

Trev ………. Trev5
Dave …….. Dave2302
Paul ………. Carspito55
Kev ……….. KevD
Myk ………. Avel Du
Col ……….. Col
Gary …….. GaryLaird
Gareth ….. Garfalls
Me …………. DAVETHESCAFF

Russ ……… RLander (On the tour with us, but not on Sunday due to an airport trip with Estella)

So glad you had a sunny day for the Applecross pass, Last time we were there the top was swathed in cloud. The view eastwards from the top is one of the best in the U.K. I think.
NB I had to stop in that pull in on the bend at 6.16 climbing westwards in my 4.0 XJS as she was getting a bit warm! I replaced the rad upon our return and all was well again. They are prone to filling with crud from the bottom.....the new rad is usually considerably lighter than the old one!

After finishing the run over the Pass of the Cattle, and taking the obligatory photos at the sign, we set of towards Inverness and beyond. The sun lighting the countryside as we sped (Ooops that should read drove ) past lochs and hills.

Love the random frame YouTube chose, of me passing Trev5, for this video.

Part 4 of the Sunday route.....

Thanks for the feedback Col. I'm reliving the tour myself as I trawl through the hours of footage. That's me got about halfway through with the post today! Hopefully I'll get to finish this tours videos before I go on the next one!

Leaving Dulnain Bridge we head for Tomintoul (meaning "Hillock of the Barn"). The village was laid out on a grid pattern by the 4th Duke of Gordon in 1775. It followed the construction, twenty years previously, of a military road by William Caulfeild – now the A939 (which we actually follow south towards Braemar).

After saying farewell to Gareth in the village centre, before he turned off further along the route (he'd driven all the way across to Applecross to meet up with us), we were on our way again, passing the Lecht Ski Area (no snow to be seen ….. yet) as we pushed on in the late afternoon sun.

Part 5 of the Sunday route ….

The final leg of the Sunday jaunt. Leaving Braemar we carried on down through the Cairngorms National Park passing the empty car parks at the Glenshee Ski Area. A lovely scenic section of road.

Crikey, Davie.

The amount of time and effort that goes into these vids we might have to get Jeff to put you on the staff books.

Deb enjoyed the tales so much that she's got us touring Scotland again right now.

Awaking to our new surroundings in Pitlochry, we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at our digs before setting off on the day's adventure.
