Coast and Castles North will be our third and final tour of 2017. It begins in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and the finish of our 2013 Coast and Castles South tour. The route follows NCN Route 1 and crosses the Firth of Forth into the Kingdom of Fife with its beautiful countryside. Along the way, there are stunning views of sweeping beaches and romantic ruined castles, as it follows the coast north passing through fishing villages and historic sites, such as Dunnottar Castle, on its way to the Granite City of Aberdeen.
On this tour, Sarah and I will be joined by the two Andy’s from Stockport Community Cycling Club again. Indeed, this will be our third tour as a team, following the Scottish C2C and Way of the Roses 2017. We will also be joined by tour ‘newbies’ John and Louise.
At the end of the tour, Sarah and I are cycling on to Midmar to spend a few days with her cousin. All in all, it is going to be another exciting trip.
