Today's ride gave us a true feel for what the rest of the trip will be like - Loch Tulla, Glencoe Mountain, Loch Leven and the scenic A82 - the highlands in all it's glory. A heavy rain shower just before we entered Gelencoe reminded us why we waterproofed the gear. Stopped at Fort William and again in Fort Augustus at the south point of Loch Ness where we had Fish & Chips. Taking the route on the eastern shores of Loch Ness past Inverfarigaig was a good choice to get away from the daily tourist traffic. Passing through Inverness - the official starting point of the NC500. We overnight in Invergordon with a beautiful view over the estuary.
