Hi Davytdm... the boat is the Sir Walter scott. It is a lovely part of the country. The fuel can is a proper adventure style fuel cell, multi skinned with an excellent quick release mount system. It's from a US company called Rotopax. Windingroads.co. uk and adventurebikeshop.co.uk stock them. Not the cheapest but very good.

Lol...thanks to the mild winter and hot wet summer so far...they were the worst I have seen in years.. really bad! When we stopped you dare not open your visor never mind take helmet off. Camping will be fun this year.

After seeing this thread this morning, I decided to take a look on my way back from Glencoe. The road around the Loch is closed to traffic, except bicycles and pedestrians. Great road heading there :)

Glad you enjoyed it....I just bypassed the gate and continued round the Loch....the other end brings you out on the road to Inversnaid hotel then into Aberfoyle. It was later in the day I done that when no one was around 😉
