A tale of Victorian town hall urinals, the incredible 'how many broon coos can you fit in a trailer?', a girl from Devon with a nice bottom, punctures and bulging tyres, peach sheep, the inaccessible village (it's a local village for local people), Velo's run in with the shonky Fiesta and the cattle-grid, the magical open tea room, Rob's pocket speed camera for single-track lawbreakers, the Ben Lawers descent and Killin' by sundown...

ZigZag has a way with words indeed but just about summed it up in one paragraph.

Despite the weather and steep hills it was another grand MacRetro day out.
