    how I said before, the weather became better from one minute to the next..
    [​IMG]

    and then we reached our interim target.. John O'Groats - the most northern point of Scotland!!!

    [​IMG]

    unfortunately we didn't see some small fishes...wrong time for this..
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and see who was here before as well [​IMG] You know them?... this was the starting point of their journey "long way down"

    from the most northern point we drove westbound...all the time along the coast.... with pleasant 22 degrees...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was time for my great fun!!!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    this was really exhausting.... but also brilliant! I'd love to try this without the boxes [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    after 20min I had to stop myself... I didn't want to trash the bike because we were somewhere in the nowhere...
    [​IMG]

    for me it was like christmas and birthday together...

    new day... new luck? the expectations were high... a short view out of the tent... disillusionment... bad dark clouds in the sky... but no rain yet....

    first pack everything in the morning...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    hihi...behind the barricade [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    our interim target for today is the Isle of Skye...
    we wanted to test a B&B too...but many were booked up and those with free rooms were to expensive for us ... 80pounds..

    so let's go to the hostel... we got a four-bed-room for 50pounds [​IMG] luxury..
    [​IMG]

    and the best of it... a pub next door...YES...
    [​IMG]

    the evening was really funny because a group of 10 young guys met there...after about 30 minutes the guys were in really good mood and sing along every song...entertaining!

    The next morning... woke up in the bed totally relaxed and without hangover [​IMG] first of all I fixed the boxes on the bike...the weather is still dry...
    [​IMG]

    and let's go... we liked it...
    [​IMG]

    The connection to the mainland... [​IMG] There we saw another KLR... in the movie at 09:04...
    [​IMG]

    Breeeeakfast...
    [​IMG]

    after 30kilometers I noticed that I forget to hand over the roomcard at the hotel...so let's go back... the funny thing, we passed a police control three times [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    after the small detour we saw the next highlight..
