Long way up, long way down! Very enjoyable! Beautiful landscapes and great routes. Weather so la la, but not bad. One thing though, running out of power and the campsite was not too helpful. The last few campsites really locked off their electricity, not a single plug that could be used… Totally different topic. When I came up north all was yellow. Now it has changed and I see a lot of purple flowers. It’s great to see these changes. And nature will survive us! Look at these little plants get through the tarmac! Meaning, humans might kill themselves, but nature is stronger and will find its way.

Eurovelo 1 - bikepath in Aberfoyle

A rollercoaster. Went up a beautiful climb along a loch. With great views and very few cars. Met a nice couple along the way, at a top of a hill. They said that that there would be some more coming as they did it already once. But they couldn’t remember exactly. So we agreed that ignorance is bloss. Got into Killin where I took a little lunch break. It started to rain. Quite a bit. So I extended the stay. When I started again, I was met with a beautiful path. And even a tennis court. Haven’t seen one in ages and I love them! But then, gravel! Uphill! Not my favourite! More rain! Not really happy… more rain. But then it turned so beautiful! Lots of lakeviews, small road, no cars. At times I felt like the train from Harry Potter, going through the highlands. Then again uphill with bad gravel through a national park. Very tough, but the landscape was absolutely gorgeous! Then a long downhill stretch into Aberfoyle. With the cutest cyclepath ever. Lots of illustrations covered the way with slogans to be more nature friendly. All in all, my favourite day! So much beauty! Unfortunately I don’t have many pictures to show as my phone was out of battery.
