Montana to Africa via Switzerland

Scottish MTN Safari from C Coid on Vimeo.

Craig was most fortunate to hook up with Daniel and Jason over for some biking and had a most memorable time.
The team
Three days around the 'Gorms, two in the NW Highlands and a final day in Fort William left them breathless in many ways!!
References to Scotland being Montana, USofA and African savannahs give you an impression of the weather (hot) and variety of scenery available in our wee country.

From wanting to throttle Craig well into a two hour hike-a-bike to echoing praise of the best 2 hr descent ever undertaken gives you an idea of the fine time they had.
We're gonna kill you soon...!!
Still might kill you but it looks good ahead
Craig, we love you!
Best biking ever!!!

From Menzies in Dunkeld (Scotland's best deli??) to some fine pizza and beer in the Grog n Gruel in Fort William, food and hospitality met expectations (bar one bizarre scone and sandwich moment in Torridon!!) and Jason's search for fine ale and finer whisky was sated :)
Jason in trepidation of the haggis Scotch egg!! Understandably we thought...

Daniel enjoying some local fire water
All in, a truly memorable week for all; general consensus was that Craig's truck rocks but Scotland's biking rocks even more.  

Thanks also to Guy at the Bothy in Braemar for some secret trails.
