Hi there, we’re already far into preparation for our cycle and today we joined the Scottish Youth Hostel Association.

We’ve been looking high and low for the best route to go by, but we just can’t seem to settle on the right one.

So we need your help!
Does anyone out there have some advice? Know a good route that we can go by?
Any ideas on the best way to combine 2 weeks of cycling with a good holiday of sight-seeing and fun?

If you have any helpfull advice of suggestions for our little excursion, please post a comment here or send us an email.

Gordon and Mike
