    Snowdonia was scenic... Real fascinating landscapes. Also the roads we used were ok. Just there is no time to seek for some mint tracks...as thetime schedule is lethal..so it is just a fly by thrue the UK at the end..only for Scottland there is a bit more time

    I see sometimes these thing on roads in Snowdonia W. Wales...why is that? ...somehow I miss the purpose...it is not deep enough for animals and no water channel there too

    The metal grids on the road are called cattle grids. (Well, pretty much any animal, sheep mainly) it keeps animals in the area they’re meant to be in without wandering off. Often found as you leave a small town or village into open moorland.
    Great report by the way

    Typical narrow roads..a little hilly... I love the bumps...where it wheelies on..without really helping the frontwheel up

    We made a little soft offroad...and was rewarded by a luxury place to sleep. Soft gras, no frost and no rain. Welcome in Scotland

    If you are lucky...have dry roads and open views...it is like a poaradise on Earth.

    The reason why we suffer on discomfort...
    1. Of course the sporty suspension... :-)
    2. But most of all! The design!
