Descent into Gonachan

If we were to recommend just one bike journey in Central Scotland, this would be it. Tough ascents of the Tak Ma Doon and Crow Roads are interspersed with a relaxing ride through the beautiful Carron Valley, followed by short sections of the Strathkelvin Railway Path and Forth & Clyde Canal. All this within 15 minutes train […]

Loch Dhùghaill, Isle of Skye

In May, the Dahonies headed north and took a wonderful spin around the Sleat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye. With hillsides covered with dreamy bluebells and spring flowers, it’s not hard to see why this area is also known as the Garden of Skye.

In February the Dahonies took a trip to Croatia. Even though we left our beloved bikes behind, we couldn’t resist going on a couple of cycling expeditions while we were there. On our very first day in Zagreb, we took a bike tour of the city then cycled to the 3,273 foot summit of Mount […]

After spending much longer than anticipated at the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway Museum, we decided to make a weekend of it and complete the journey from Linlithgow to Stirling over 2 days. […]

It includes one of the highest road passes in the UK, one of the longest steepest climbs and a downhill to match, all set in 360 degrees of incredible scenery. Find out how the Dahonies fared on the legendary road to Applecross. Day […]

Carradice SQR Trax

Cycle Route 7 is a long distance route between Inverness and Carlisle. We’ve already explored the lovely rural Glasgow to Lochwinnoch section, and were keen to experience the Ayrshire coast, which is easily accessible from Glasgow. The weather forecast was iffy, but we carried on regardless and were rewarded with a mostly sunny day which […]
