To give anyone who is watching the AR and is undecided this video may give you an incentive. The commentary is just giggleworthy

A few of us went from that bunk house for a jolly round the borders back in 2008 organised by Amarko.


The roads were fantastic. I recall keilder, Megget water, St Mary's loch etc. and a visit to a Tibetan monestary to see the baldies. Highlights include Quiff sliding down the road in the rain, the worst wind I have ever ridden in.

It is an amazing part of the world. I am sure all will enjoy it.

This place:

Really cool, if a smidgeon out of the ordinary (if you count a huge Tibetan monastry sat in the rolling Scottish hillside as out-of-the-ordinary that is) place for a cuppa while outn about.
