haven't done the scottish stuff yet, planning for next summer but i quite often do wales trips.
bearing in mind i live in southampton i try and break up the driving by starting from home early, going to afan and riding something there, a mix of whites level and skyline usually, then drive north to dolgellau and stay over night, then ride coed y brenin, then stay another night then ride there again then return home.
these trails i like as they seem to flow quite well and the visitor centres are good with showers and cafe's available aswel as bike shops to have a sniff in!
here is a facebook link of my most recent ride there with by mate adam, he was riding my clockwork and i was on my ST4, and believe it or not but this was only november!!

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
