It was a young exec Bob. I doubt he thought it was as funny as I did. Especially when he missed a turn and suddenly we were in front. Epic stuff.
If only I'd had the dashcam running.....

Have made this trip a few times, in Aero and others.

My view is it is a trip of two halves, on the East coast the scenery is more gentle but should be visited in order not to miss out on places such as Aberdeen and Arbroath for "smokies" and a wide range of distilleries. coffee

Have always preferred April to avoid the midges and get some snow scenery. Huge range of places to stay, have always booked in advance according to expected mileage per day, some hotels (Loch Fyne etc) mostly in B&Bs. Do watch the speed though, the police have helicopters cop

End of May is great, no school holidays and no midges
We went up the west coast and back again. We generally stayed two nights in the hotels to avoid having to pack up every morning. Gives you a day to tour the area. Make sure you visit Skye. Flodigarry hotel was superb.
I think you should book ahead.
