That's pretty rough considering the man's grief this year  Thumbsdown


Eh, I know what he's been through this year. But the calendar rules do not say that the photos have to be from the current year and I have no doubts that the Orson Archivestm are quite extensive.

And judging from the number of "reported posts" he sends the mods, Orson has enough time on his hands  Lol

He's probably just regrouping to return with a knockout punch in the new year Wink

Oh yeah, I can just see him pouring over maps and town descriptions, scheming and planning. He has some touring to make up, for sure! Burnout

Thanks to Orson and all for the photos of the UK.  Been to Scotland and yes, it is the most beautiful place I have ever seen.  I want to go back and re-visit Scotland, see Ilse of Man TT, and the rest of jolly old England.

Must go to Totnes as I have a very distance family (Carew) member that was the Earl Of Totnes back during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1 and King James.

I rode the Guzzi from Italy to the UK twice  Smile

Then I bought the Thruxton to have a bike in the UK. Unfortunately, I don't get up to the UK as much as I had hoped to  Sad

The Falkirk Wheel


Great photos!!  I love Scotland and took the drive from Edinburgh to Dingwall then back in one day  EEK!  We ran out of time and really need to go back.  Too much to see and do too quickly - very sad.  

What in the world is the Falkirk Wheel?  Some sort of water wheel?  Headscratch

Riding the UK, especially Scotland in the winter is for the very hardy or perhaps the very foolhardy. But, late winter (April) can be pretty good. Oh, you’ll still get rained on (a lot), probably get snowed on, gale force winds and all the while freezing your toes off.

There’s a lot of this – was much worse than pictured
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0406.jpg

Which leads to this
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0404.jpg

But the same day can be this – North Coast
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0427.jpg

And this – Loch Ness
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0398.jpg

An hour and a half later Castle Eileen Donan
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF1607.jpg

20 minutes later
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0950.jpg

An hour later, melting snow brings high water on Skye
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF0963.jpg

Followed by Old Man Storr, Skye – bleak and dreac
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/DSCF1366.jpg

The next day brings bright joyfull sunshine – Tobermory, Mull
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg7/notarian/Late%20winter/FXCD0023.jpg

And best place in Winter? Absolutely, surrounded by whisky

Those are awesome Scotland pictures   Thumbsup

Is that one of Loch Ness taken from Fort William looking north?

We were over there in May and its was fairly mild.  No snow but plenty of rain and wind just like the Pacific Northwest.

Now, now Papa. Be nice. Kaiser was giving compliment.

"lost lands-Lloegyr" indeed. Lost to 40 million population (Lloegry alone, not the whole of England, 55M) potholed roads, a few hills... no serious motorbiker travels the region for long as its only to catch a ferry or pass through to ride Scotland, Wales or Northern England. The title is "Pictures of the UK" and, unfortunately but true, few ever stop for photos of Lloegyr in general.

Now, if there were to be a Lloegyric pandemic...

Ft. Augustus that's it!!  Wasn't there a monastery there too and some of the earliest Nessie sightings by the monks?

Strathclyde, eh? Well, the statement is a definite maybe. Only because it recently took about 500 years to sort out. From 600-1100AD Strathclyde was ruled by the Scottish Kings of Alba, the Norse from Ireland, a short spell of England's Wessex Kings then regained by the Scots. Cumbria was included in this from time to time.

From strictly a biker point of view (not agriculturally), England got some of the best of it in Cumbria (Lake District) so there isn't that much to complain about.

ANZAC, it's Ft. Augustus Abbey (not really very old - around 1880) and, yes it is part of Nessieland.

Ft. Augustus - the Canal Lochs

Sorry, no pics of the Abbey
