Travelsonabike2 Scotland Friday 12th-September-2014

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is bicycle touring Scotland on Friday, the 12th-September-2014. Edinburgh to Blair Atholl. 79 miles. Had the normal problem this morning of finding my way out of the city and found it even more frustrating than normal due to my late departure. Well, not really late, just later than I wanted to. Which was due to my stupid laptop deciding to update itself!

Not a lot has happened today. I’ve just been riding along all day. There wasn’t even much to see, as it’s been foggy for most of the day. I did see the sun late in the day, at about 4 o’clock but that was it! Had a nightmare trying to find somewhere to stay again tonight. I thought I was going to have a problem tonight from about 2 o’clock.

I’d looked at the map first thing this morning and saw that there was a campsite at Pitlochry and thought that would be about the right distance for today. Unfortunately, about 30 miles away, I saw a sign saying highland games at Pitlochry on Saturday 13th, tomorrow! Great, just what I needed another night of trying to find accommodation, well I wasn’t disappointed all the campsites and hotels were full as expected. It’s not the fact that they’re full so much it’s more of a pain for me having to go and ask! I just like to stop at the first place I see! Eventually I found another campsite about 10 miles away here at Blair Atholl.
