Hi. I am a Swede planning to take my scrambler to a trip around Scotland this summer. Thought I'd ask you here a few questions.

1. During witch time is it best to visit? Main concern is rain.

2. Do you have a certain time period when most people have vacation?

3. Can you go offroad legally?

4. Are you allowed to set up a tent by the road or in nature. If not is there a lot of commercial camping grounds.what does a night cost. Maybe guesthouses?

5. Would be pleast to get suggestions for cool MC stores. Scrambler / cafe racer related.

6. Do one have to think about gas. Are the gas stations sparse?

7. What's the alcohol limit?

Regards / Carl

HI CwL any chance you could give my son a lift home he goes to school in Stockholm LOL.
1 The only difference between winter and summer is the rains warmer in summer.
2 July- August.
3 Some forest tracks you can get access to, but you still need to be careful regarding noise speed etc.
4 Plenty of camp sites,wild camping and bunk houses etc
5 Mmmmmm none I know.
6 Even up north fuel stations aint a problem.
7 22 micrograms per 100 ml this is very low so the best thing to do is DONT DRINK AND RIDE.

Cheers J

Thank you for answering my questions.

Your son would be stuck in gothenburg :)

Well i don't drink and drive. I drink sleep then drive. On vacation i tend to party more. So have to be careful for the next day. Good i asked tho, because i know now that there is different limit in Scotland compare to the rest of the Uk.

Ok so upgrade rain protection then.

If you are going to the North west, Ullapool and North, then May/June seems to be best for weather but like any where in Scotland you can't depend on that. Expect rain. If it is warm and wet you can also expect midgies especially from June to September.
There is only one Ducati dealer in Scotland, in Glasgow.
