Hi Guys, after recently buying an SLK55 AMG I decided it would be good to add to the 9000 miles it had on it already. Me and the wife decided to have a few days travelling through Scotland to places we had not been to before. Here are the details of what was a superb 5 days ,in case anybody is wanting to do something similar. We didn't really have a set route ,we just decided pretty much ad hoc as we went. Monday we set off from Manchester. Drove up to Aberdeen. Tuesday went on to Inverness through the Cairngorns past a ski resort, Lecht I think it was called, totally green at the moment though so no snow there, which wasn't a problem for us as the roads were fantastic. Drove on up to Wick . Wednesday drove up to John o Groats then across the top of Scotland to Thurso Tongue, Bettyhill , past Dounray and then down to Ullapool. Thursday drove through Kyle of Lochalsh onto Skye over to Uig where we got the ferry to Lochmaddy in the the Outer Hebrides. (we had lived in the outer Hebrides 25 years ago for 13 months so this was a visit really to see if anything had changed ,although it really does have some beautiful beaches.) Friday we set off back but couldn't squeeze on the midday ferry so had to wait 8 hours for the next one so we drove around and found a great beach near Bernaray on the Island. Got off the ferry at 2200 on Friday and set off back towards Fort William, Loch Lomand and then Glasgow and then back down motorway to Manchester. Covered just over 1500 miles and the car performed fantastic. Much of the scenery was absolutely fantastic and many of the roads were a drivers dream ,in particular through the Cairngorms. The over taking ability of the SLK 55 was a pure delight. Listening to it roar as it dropped down a gear or two and shunted us forward with ease. Much of the driving was done with the roof down as well ,as the weather was actually great for most of the trip. I think we hit a low cloud over the mountains at one point but powered through it without getting wet really..! Some scary roads as well that required a bit of common sense especially the return from Uig to home as this was done in the dark due to not getting the early ferry and we came round many a corner to find a deer staring at us in the middle of the road. All in all it was fantastic and we really enjoyed the car , it was a whistle stop tour but we both thoroughly enjoyed the car and the roads . Hope its not been too long winded for you guys but thought it may be worth sharing. Cant wait for the next trip.
