Gate Crashing


Cochill Burn

My new bike arrived on Friday and so I decided to take a spin up to Aberfeldy on the weekend. I headed up through Dunfermline, past Knockhill (where a few fast cars where wizzing around the race course) and Crossed the Ochils through Glen Devon. Then I took in Glen Eagles to Crieff and from there to Aberfeldy.

In Aberfeldy I ran into a biker (the leather clad motorcycle type) and ended up getting myself invited to his son's stag do in a bunk house on top of a very steep hill. This was superb good luck! I bought the stag (who had been awake for approximately 54 hours and was supremely drunk) a bottle of whiskey as a thank you present. He just said, "Thanks, could you put it over there with the 15 others."

With roasted pig, beer and heavy rock, not to mention a drunken rope swing, I settled in.
Drunk as lords and dressed like idiots. Fantastic!

On Sunday morning I had a hangover. I filled up my water bottle with ice and warm water (the cold tap was broken in the bunkhouse) and breakfasted on more pig and apple sauce. Then I free wheeled down into Aberfeldy and pedalled west. I followed the south bank of Loch Tay which has a small single track road and superb views over the loch to the Ben Lawers range. By Killin the hangover was easing and I joined NCN7 which I followed to Callander.
I didn't go there, but I'm sure its an interesting place

Loch Tay

I made it to Bridge of Allen before the heavens opened and it tipped it down all of the rest of the way to Charlestown. Bike was brilliant!
