Empty roads, lots of wind, from time to time some rain. I never knew, I would go up as far as that and I wished, I had more time to spend.

Leere Strassen, viel Wind, von Zeit zu Zeit Regen. Ich hatte zu Beginn meiner Reise nicht geahnt, dass ich so hoch in den Norden fahren würde und ich wünschte, ich hätte mehr Zeit zur Verfügung gehabt.

May Very nice Scotish countryside. Your photo shows an attractive perspective along the road way and flowers in both sides. Charming! Could be a painting.

Schottland muss wirklich schön sein, May! Deine Reisefotos beweisen es! Liebe Grüße, Anne

These are roads that you must take great care on May, Working Farmers are not noted for their road sense, and do not give you much time to stop, Scally.

Rafael, thank you very much! I love the Scottish landscape! May

Tiff, thanks a lot! May

Anne, danke schön! Ja, Schottland ist wirklich sehr schön. Liebe Grüsse, May

Scally, this would solve the problem for accomodation! ;) I drove for dozens of miles without seeing many people. The thing I really took care of, was to check if I had enough petrol. ;)) Cheers, May

Thanks, Blai! That was on my way to Thurso, the most Northern town on the mainland of Scotland.

Merci, Domi! Oui, c'était magnifique de voyager dans cette campagne. J'avais rencontré une seule voiture sur plus que trente km. Amitiés,


May M. B. (Swissmay) on March 16, 2009

Merci, Domi, je pense aussi que ce serait beau pour se promener. Mais j'étais en voiture, et il y avait un vent assez fort. Bonne nuit,

Ginger, thank you very much for remapping it, though I am rather proud to have misshit it by only a very short way, considering that I drove 3650 km around in Scotland. My best regards to you and to your gorgeous country,
