Since I am a 'jock' living in good old Naarfoolkkk, some of my friends asked me to put a trip together to Scotland. Most of them have never been across the 'border', so were fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster and the seasonal Haggis bashing events.
Therfore a group of us (Norfolk Overland Explorers) will be heading up to Scotland and all the way to Cape Wrath in July 2015. Yes, I have warned them about the dreaded scottish midgies!
Our route will take us over to Mull, then up Loch Ness, Ullapool, Cape Wrath, then back down to Inverness, Aviemore then home.
Some of our group are new to this Overlanding lark, so this trip is to familiarize them with a Overland trip lasting more than a long weekend. Some of our campsites will be lacking with 'facilities', so 'self sufficient' is being 'dicussed'.
Most of the trip will be on tarmac, however I have found a contact who is going to lead us into the vast Scottish Wilderness for 1 day of offroading.
If this trip is a success then hopefully the NOE gang wil be ready for a big Overseas adventure in the future.....
