A Bit Scott-ish by Mike Carden
Pedalling through Scotland in search of Adventure, Nature and Lemon Drizzle Cake
Currently out of print.
A Bit Scott-ish is the tale of a journey through Scotland, chance encounters with locals and fellow travellers, delving into Scotland’s tumultuous history, surviving storm and wind, and discovering just how hopeless it is possible to be at Nature. And at finding the way. And at quite a few other things as well.
The author pedals via the Orkney Islands, the flow country of Sutherland, the Cairngorm mountains, rolling Perthshire, historic Stirling, the rocky coast of Fife, the romantic city of Edinburgh and the Borders, bringing his own descriptive style to a beautiful land.

“A comical take on a very serious challenge.” The Orcadian
“Witty… a light touch” Cycle Magazine (CTC)
