Suilven – this is close as we could get to the majestic Suilven, here seen from the side looking like the spine of a huge dinosaur.
By the time we reached Loch Maree the rain was starting to set in.
New ignition system installed? Check. Restored rear axle installed? Check. Stage II 2.0 litre engine installed with an exhaust that’s got more crackles and pops than a bowl of Rice Krispies? Check. The road North to Fife starts on Saturday 13th August. Wick on Wednesday 17th, Lochinver Thursday 18th, Eagle Brae Friday 18th, Skye then Applecross Sunday 21st, Tobermory Tuesday 23rd, Oban Wednesday 24th and back to Fife on Thursday 25th. Glorious blue skies and the sun shining? Hopefully…
Sunday 29 May.
After 3 weeks and having to replace practically
the entire ignition system, we’re finally running again!
