    Default Skottland 2014

    Ifjor reiste vi fra Alta til Island via Færøyene i 6 uker.
    Iår går turen til Skottland og kanskje Orkenøyene og Irland.
    Last year we travelled from Alta to Iceland via Faroe Islands. Total trip 6 weeks.
    This year we head for Scotland and Orkney Islands and maybe Ireland.

    Turbilen er en 1985 MB 300GD kort cab med glassfiber hardtop. Jeg skal presentere den nærmere med flere bilder og detaljer.
    The expedition vehicle is a 1985 Mercedes Gelendewagen 300 Diesel with STT turbo. Short wheelbase with fiberglass hardtop. I will present it further with pictures and details.

    If we have rain we may fit a tent under the canopy like we did on Iceland last year. We also have a mosquito net for the aft canopy.

    Da er vi klar til å dra. Det blir ferge/fraktebåt fra Gøteborg til Immingham på østkysten av England , ca 400km fra grensen til Skottland. Starten går fra det som skal bli landemerket i Alta , Nordlyskatedralen. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1402426266.025965.jpg

    Klarte ikke å laste ned kart, men vi kjører det som i fremtiden skal bli E45 hele veien fra Alta til Gøteborg.
    1975km som tar 22-25 timer med kjøring. Regner med at vi skal være i Mora fredag morgen og ankomme ferge rundt 1800 fredag kveld. Fergeturen tar et døgn og koster 5500 svenske hvorav 3500 er for kost og losji. Blir godt for en gammel sjømann å få dekk under beina igjen!
    Failed to download a map, but we will drive the planned E45 all the way from Alta to Gothenburg. 1250 miles that will take us 22-25 hours of driving time. We have to be at the ferry 6 pm on Friday. The ferry crossing takes 24 hours and will set us back $900. The cabin and 3 meals for the two of us is $600. Anyway, it will be a blast for an old sailor to use his sea legs again.

    Camped in a forest in the middle of nowhere. Nice an clear weather when we went to bed but raining in the morning. We headed for the coast yesterday due to heavy rain inland.
    Regn om morgenen. Campet i skogen ute i ødemarken. Liker ikke å vill-campe nær store gjennomfartsårer. Igår dro vi ut til kysten fordi det var meldt mye regn i innlandet.

    Denne ekvipasjen var stilig. Jeg bidro med en ledning slik at han fikk lyd i sirener sine.
    Nice setup. An old police car but the poor guy did not have his sirens hooked up. I happened to have just the piece of wire he was missing and the guy was blowing his horns like a madman when he drove off the rest area.

    Ikke mye uteplass på fraktebåten, men grei lugar og messe og dagrom. Fikk også se Holland slå Spania i VM!
    Not much of an outdoor area on the ferry crossing to England. The cabin was ok and the dining room and lounge sufficed. The food was lousy. But we could watch zHolland beat Spain in the worldcup on TV!

    Attachment 95606Attachment 95607 English countryside. Avoiding the highways and driving the byways is rewarding scenery wise but progress is slow. We loved it, though!
    Vi foretrekker å kjøre sideveiene og nyte landskapet. Det går saktere men gir en større opplevelse.

    Also Staithe. Her tilbrakte Kaptein Cook sin ungdom!

    Vi hadde vanskelig for finne campingplasser og de stenger svært tidlig, kl 1800.
    Bilkjøring krever litt mer enn på kontinentet. Først er det venstrekjøring og dernest har de enormt med rundkjøringer. Ikke bare er de mange men store og noen har sågar trafikklys for å komme ut av de. Har hatt et par skumle opplevelser, men så langt er vi ok.

    Finding campsites is not easy. Most are caravans only and some takes long time parking only. Few accept tents even when they are on top of a car. Driving is challenging on the left side of the road and roundabouts are hard to negotiate. They are numerous and enormous and even with traffic lights in the middle. Puh!

    Shots are from GoPro camera. Memory card on Canon failed so GoPro will have to do the job. The scenery along the byroads is gorgeous and one have to see to believe.
    Fikk problem med minnekort på kamera så må ta fra GoPro kamera. Fantastisk landskap som må oppleves.
    En rariteter er at jeg får 3G dekning på iPad men ikke på iPhone. Samme leverandør!

    Vi kjører stort sett såkalte B veier som er svært smale og uten plass til å stoppe i veikanten og ta bilder. Derfor mister vi mange foto-muligheter. Har stoppet etpar ganger og parkert i veikanten men det har ført til farlige situasjoner og anbefales ikke. Men du verden for en frodig natur og for et fugleliv. Ikke rart at det er så mange skotske fugletittere rundt i verden. Traff en gang en midt i jungelen i Sarawak på Borneo som nektet å følge guiden tilbake fordi han ville se noen spesielle fugler ved Dagrun, så han overnattet alene midt i jungelen.

    By choosing the byways, B-roads, we miss a lot of good photo opportunities. The roads re narrow and have no shoulders to park the car. After two scary incidents we don't risk our lives for a photo any more. The landscape in the southern region is very fertile and there is no spare land to waste for roads. The bird life is incredible and I wonder no more why there as so many Scottish bid watchers around. We once had to leave a Scotsman behind in the middle of Sarawak's jungle as he insisted on staying overnight to catch some rare species during daybreak. Scary!

    Default 18 juni Castle Douglas to Girvan

    Another glorious day with the bird symphony starting shortly after 4am. Didn't ruin my sleep, though, as I rested till 8am.
    Våknet til en ny flott solskinnsdag med fuglesang fra 4 uten at det ødela nattesøvnen.

    Trøtt av motorvei. Tired of highways. Ferry across a fjord (firth).

    Campsite near Oban. Wild camping is permitted but impossible to find an area off the road with space to park the car. Most land is fenced.
    Vill-camping er tillatt men umulig å finne plass i denne delen av landet. Alt er gjerdet inn. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1403259607.462543.jpg
