Scotland, West Coast

August 1983

A cycling tour up the West coast of Scotland with old friend Michael Milburn. We started by taking the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick on the Isle of Arran and then rode north. We stayed at youth hostels: Lochranza, Oban, Tobermory, Loch Lochy, Ratagan, Torridon, Carn Dearg (Gairloch), Ullapool, Achmelvich and Carbisdale Castle.
The photos were taken on Michael's camera and scanned from prints, 37 years later.
