Ardnamurchan

This weekend we are normally in Belgium for the Begonia Rally but this year for a variety of reasons we couldn’t go so we decided to spend the bank holiday weekend in Ardnamurchan. Pressures of work (yes I know ridiculous!) meant we left on Saturday to head up...

Adventure has its injuries

Travel Medical and insurance is one of the last things we thought about and normally just pay it and get it over with. We had to cover this topic a long time ago as it’s such an important part of overlanding and travel. But better late than never? At the top of...
