The BTBC ' Fabulous' Scottish Highland Tour 2022

April 30th, May 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th 2022 (**5 Nights**)

Building on the fantastic 2021 trip, welcome to the new 6 day format for the BTBC 'Fabulous' Scottish Highland Tour 2022. **The plan is to meet up as usual North of Carlisle at 9:50am on Saturday morning. We will then be away at 10.00am from the only services that were on the A74(North bound) (Now the new bit of the M6) north of Carlisle. The services, or Todhills Rest area as it's now called, is a Petrol Station {Shell} and a Costa Coffee, it's just after the old HGV weigh bridge on what was the A74M (fill up as you arrive please). NOTE, this is back to our usual meeting place. From the meeting point we'll take a interesting and complicated route up through the Scottish lowlands, to eventually Cross the Clyde to our first Hotel overlooking the lock. North of the Clyde. After a good meal and maybe a wee drink, we will get a good nights kip before we rise early for breakfast the next morning, to start to head up the West Coast via a spectacular route to Applecross. Here we will spend the next two nights, giving us the opportunity for a day off, or to explore more of Scotland, a trip to Skye or Loch Ness, are all within day-trip distance. As usual, we have already got permission to have a fire and party on the beech if the weather is good, so whichever of the two nights has the best forecast, will become our annual BTBC Beech Party (Very special, weather permitting). Tuesday, we continue north to pastures new, on a stunning loop towards Cape Wrath, then down to our next night in the Highlands in a stunning location, north of Inverness. Wednesday morning, after an early breakfast we continue south, eventually arriving at our last Hotel in Scotland, for more food, drink and banter. Thursday morning, after a relaxed breakfast, we take another interesting route which sees us back near our staring point just after lunch for the split, leaving plenty of time for your ride home. This is a truly spectacular trip well worth the effort. The new format will allow us to visit new pastures and go much further north than usual, as well as avoiding the very long run home from Applecross, allowing people further south to easily make it back home in daylight. This trip is always over booked and can only take a limited number due to the accommodation used. If you've done it before you know to be very quick. If you’ve not done it before you should make an effort to be quicker still and secure your place on this fantastic tour. Most of the roads we use North of the start are grin factor 9+. As always it is strictly first come, first served with regard to rooms, so don't hang about.

Applecross Inn is nearly ready for us:
