yes, when we do bike fitment (bash plate, crash bars, etc), we SEND them next door for coffee/free WiFi, hot dog or breakfast, keeps those dang 'pesky' customers out of our hair while we fit... :biggrin:   :komet:

Clocks go back this Sunday, so that's pretty much it for this year.  Managed to get out a few times, but really missed not being able to ride in lockdown as the weather was spectacular. 

The road to Slaggan Bay





At 'The Watchers' in the Cairngorms on the Falco.  Never passed this without it being crowded, not now...



Looking west towards Ullapool.



Near Lochinver on the north west coast.



This is our Government's response to 'Dirty Camping' 



Heavy engineering, and an oil rig, Cromarty, Black Isle.  It's not black and it isn't an island - Scottish humour eh?





Had to make sure we picked up supplies for Mrs 3D at the Cromarty brewery.  The most northerly dyno shop is next door and is owned by the the father of the lad who runs the brewery.  A little bit of heaven really.

Loch Garry.  Nice spot for outr picnic.  Typical Highland weather, natch.



Obligatory stop at Eilean Donan.  Can ye feel The Quickening, Connor MacLeod?



Strome Castle not in such a good state of repair.



A visit to another historical attraction firmly closed.  Never mind, it was a nice spot.





On the way down the longest dead end in Britain (the road to Kinloch Hourn, not Brexit  >:D )









Up to Dornoch on the Falco.  Looking over Bonar Bridge and the Dornoch Firth from Struie Hill.

[/url]

Dornoch Beach



Lastly, over to Redpoint on the west coast, Skye in the background.



Badachro bay.  New distillery here, plus a pub with deck looking out over the bay.  Nice.

Whatever else the UK is, has or was, it remains a really beautiful country.  So green and lush, so tranquil, so, well, English.  I always wonder how it must have been for the early settlers from there to South Africa to arrive here in harsh and rugged Africa with all its challenges.  It could not have been easy and is surely a tribute to their perseverance and commitment that they remained and helped build a country here.

Is this genuine stonework or tiles?  If the former, it is impressive and very well built.

Thanks for the pix @Three Dawg, in lieu of a UK holiday, this is the next best thing.  :thumleft:

I suspect the brewery's stonework is some sort of facing, but there are plenty of country houses, castles, churches and bridges around here which have stone construction and there are people around who can rebuild and repair that stuff perfectly - at a price.

[EDIT]  Ah, maybe it's real - built from local field stones, but maybe over a cinder block base. Whatever, Chapeau to the craftsmen!  https://www.cromartybrewing.com/the-brewery/brewery-shop

Anyway, glad you like the pics.  We won't be going anywhere soon unfortunately, but looking forward to reading about more gravel based motorcycle madness on WD as the nights draw in here. :ricky:
