There is also a Zeebrugge-Rosyth ferry. Rosyth is north of Edinburgh beside the Forth Road Bridge and Forth Railway Bridge. It was operated by Blue Star until last year but has now been taken over by Norfolk Line I believe. There is no finer way to enter Scotland than beneath the Forth Railway Bridge!

See http://www.norfolkline.com/ferry/?campaign=google&gclid=CInt8NW6iJsCFWIB4wodyjp3pg#06140246

My personal favourite roads are Fort William to Arisaig and Lairg to Rogart. The Trossachs are superb for scenery as is the Loch Lomond side road and beyond to Inverary etc. Essentially you can't go far wrong!

First place I ever took my first Morgan - great roads, great scenery great driving. Spent a week driving walking and fishing on Skye staying round the corner from the Talisker distillery. Fabulous!

As said I'll speak with Nick and get advice on timings to go and an approx cost for a 4/5 day lap of some of the best roads. He already runs at least one open trip to scotland a year so will have the contacts for accommodation and key routes well covered.

Apparently Scotland is well known for its midges, which are most prolific in June, July and August, so best we avoid those months with open topped cars! Or is this just a myth?

Its definiyely NOT a myth although its much more of a problem on the west coast than the east.

P.S Brian, are you not going to add me to the list?

Well as there are no other volunteers Rich, it looks like your plan has been accepted thumbs May also sounds a good month before we really get into the summer Mogging season. grin2

It may be an idea to have two grades of hotels, one for the more impecunious amongst us (like me frown ) and one for the richer b's who want to spoil themselves. wine

Hmm. Very interesting. For now I'll keep my powder dry, but I'm tenuously interested. The reason is that MrsW wants a return trip to Scotland. We haven't been that far North for quite a few years and she wants to visit the Isle of Skye. Whether she could put up with you lot over a few days however, is questionable ..... grin2
Anyway when we know when, and where, I'll be in a better position to take a view. We were planning a Scotland trip maybe next year anyway, and now the daughter has flown the nest we have freedom.... well, some anyway. laugh2
I do enjoy a sail on the Walter Scott on Loch Katrine - very Jules Verne, and right up my street being steam powered. nerd
