The mighty "Central scrutiniser" (Frank Zappa- Joes Garage) had decided we were to be slightly freed from our shackles and be given a slightly longer bit of chain so the rule this week (well this minute) is stay within your local council boundaries unless essential to go somewhere to get something you can't get locally. I needed to get the letter "U" in a place name for a photograph, unfortunately the nearest place that starts with a U is just over the county line in deepest Fife, Upper Largo, nobody was at risk, we only stopped for a photo, bikes still running and helmets firmly on heids! Then as quickly as possible back to the confines of Perthshire where we can go about our business without fear of persecution by big brother.
Now I realise some of you may be confused with the "U" thing but for this I blame the Triumph Owners club who suggested a while back that it might be an idea to visit places whose initial letters spell TEA CUP, always up for a cup of Tea we thought it a great idea and a fine excuse to visit such fine sights as Upper Largo whose delights may have gone unnoticed for centuries had the chaps at the TOMCC not come up with this wheeze.
We visited (but didn't stop except for a photo) Trinafour, Enochdhu, Aberfeldy, Calvine, Upper Largo and Pitlochry, obviously not in that order. It was a almost bright but cold Easter Friday so what else would you do? In the end 170 miles gathered the necessary photos and we had a great run in the process, the photographic evidence below!
|Bonnevilles ready for the quest|
|Over the County Line|
|Enochdhu or so it says anyway|
|Calvine on the old A9|
|Chickens on a wall, the one on the left is doing some bizzare standing on one leg ritual|
|Trinafour with a sign that needs drawn in again|
|4pm before we stopped for lunch, time flies when you are enjoying yourself|
|I needed that cup of tea|
|Finally Aberfeldy and home, braw|
|Stunning day for it|
|What a backdrop!|
|Nae Snow today thankfully|
|Over the pass at Ben Lawers|
|This sums it up, just brilliant|
|Stopped by a babbling brook|
|Sometimes its just braw to look at nature in this way, as long as there is a bike or two to look at as well!|
