If you’re wondering… the NC500 is a 500 mile road trip around the Scottish coastline. The drive up there was fantastic, for the first 100 miles. Then the front brake pads went. 😂 Heck, who needs brakes anyway? But managed Edinburgh for teatime. Fabulous hotel at Queensferry with stunning views of the three bridges. Apparently Robert Louis Stevenson came up with the idea of his novel, Kidnapped while staying there…room 13 we were told. I was corrected when I said he did well to write those books and invent a train. They are different people… shucks who would have guessed 😂
We haven’t actually started yet, as it commences at Inverness, and we only arrived there this evening. But before I left Queensferry, Edinburgh, I had a great run across the Forth Road Bridge, that’s the one in the sunset photo. There’s actually two road bridges the old one is in front of the new one, so it’s hard to tell. The other bridge is the railway bridge with trains going over it. Later versions of Robert Stevenson’s Rocket (who didn’t write books!) Queensferry is beautiful, and I’d liked to have stayed a little longer, but hey ho.
Now, that is a view from a bridge ❤️ Inverness isn’t as beautiful as Queensferry but still has its own unique charm and tomorrow mornings run has been sorted. Around the River Ness at 6am. I’m just hoping the monster has either stayed in the Loch or isn’t an early riser 😉 Be happy my friends, you’ve only got one life 🥰
