Tour of The Highlands – Introduction

A Wee Burl in the Highlands is the story of The BCR’s  participation in the Tour of the Highlands. A three day multi stage sportive that loops the Scottish highlands, tackling eight categorised climbs, four ski centres and two of the highest roads in Britain.

What started as a virginal attempt at a multi day sportive soon turned into a whole lot more.  No self aggrandizing promises of ‘Voyage’s of discovery’ or ‘battles against adversity’ here! Just the trials and tribulations, warts and all account of three dudes attempting to do something they haven’t done before.

Originally penned as a lessons learned type journal but the words kept coming, so I let them be ( excluding the vicious editing and grammatical errors).  The full story from start to finish is captured in six instalments and written  in conversational style to preserve ma colloquial tongue.

NOTE: No animals were hurt in the making of this, not even a cockeral ( that quite possibly could have been)
