    Clan Capo 2019 - Southern Hebrides

    Clan Capo Tue 25th - Sun 30th June 2019

    Southern Hebrides - Arran, Islay, Jura & Galloway Forest Park

    Tue 25th

    Depart Tesco Extra, Cuckoo Bridge, Dumfries. Follow A76 to Kilmarnock then over to Ardrossan for ferry to Brodick.

    Wee run around part of Arran.

    Accommodation in a Hostel

    Wed 26th

    Round the rest of Arran.

    Ferry to Claonig and then ferry from Kennacraig to Port Askaig on Islay.

    Head to hostel

    Thu 27th

    Round Islay and wee run over to Jura

    Back to Hostel

    Fri 28th

    Ferry from Port Ellen to Kennacraig.

    Ride down Firth of Clyde and Faslane. Across Glasgow and a scenic run to Loch Ken

    Accomodation in Hostel

    Sat 29th

    Couple for forest drives, lighthouses, some stunning scenery, plenty of stops etc.

    Back to Loch Ken and Hostel.

    Sun 30th

    Loch Ken to Gretna.

    Follow some roads through hills and along the coast.

    Everyone can head home from Gretna.

    Accommodation to be confirmed. I will try and book now for 14 people. See how things develop. Again, we will need to book ferries in advance once we have firmed dates, routes and times.

    There might be one or two Caponords attend, the rest of us will turn up on various bikes, from 250 - 1600cc

    Pillions welcome, if you want to do your own thing at various times, no problem. Nothing set in stone. Suggestions welcome as always.

    Bump.

    A reminder for dates and if anyone else may fancy joining us.

    Geoff, mileages aren't big. These are smaller islands. Biggest distance for you is Oldham to Dumfries.

    Super10 in for a service and MOT.

    Looking forward to the trip in 5 weeks or so.

    Alas, it will be the last Clan Capo organised.

    Must be 8 or 9 years now.

    I may pop in from time to time. We'll see.

    Caponord will be advertised shortly. 1500 will take her away.

    Ride safe.

    I'll still be organising trips to Scotland, but probably just organised via the existing whats app group.
