Scotland 2018 en

Why Scotland ?

Scotland 2018

After we had tried out the Giant Explore E-Bikes mountain bike version from a rental outfit in the german alps for a weekend in 2017 and bought our own special versions from Mario Hausmann later in 2017 and beginning of 2018 we needed a destination that was:

  • hilly
  • not too hot
  • reachable by train to transport the bikes
  • having a local language we spoke
  • a place we hadn't been to yet

Scotland was in the shortlist together with czechoslovakia and estonia. When checking out the list of world-wide whisky-distilleries Scotland got the pole position :-)

We spent quite a bit of time to figure out a decent itineray and came up with this plan of places where to stay:

  1. Mönchengladbach
  2. Leuven
  3. Brussels_2018-05-21
  4. London_2018-05-21
  5. Ardrossan
  6. Brodick
  7. Clanoaig
  8. Port Charlotte/Islay
  9. Craighouse/Jura
  10. Tayvallich
  11. Kilchrenan
  12. Oban
  13. Glenfinnan-Viadukt
  14. Fort William
  15. Fort Augustus
  16. Nairn
  17. Carrbridge
  18. Broomhill
  19. Ballater
  20. Kirkmichael
  21. Dundee
  22. Glenrothes
  23. Edinburgh
  24. London_2018-06-05
  25. Brussels_2018-06-05
  26. Mönchengladbach_2018-06-05

The focus of our plan was the Isle of Jura and specifically Corryvreckan.
