James reports on day one from John O’Groats to Lands End on 3 wheels

Ape attempting to grind Scotland to a halt

Ape attempting to grind Scotland to a halt

All went well on Monday. The APE ran sweetly all day, and in these conditions (almost no traffic or traffic lights) it hits the dizzy mileage of 10 miles+ per litre.
Anyone feel like contacting the Guinness Book of Records? The smallest production van in the world snapped on the official shortest street in the world in Wick, part of Mackays Hotel:

Other highlights were Loch Ness and then the commando memorial near Fort William with its panorama over ben Nevis and other still snow spotted mountains. Fortified in the evening with excellent dinner at Lime Tree B&B, shellfish and halibut would not be bettered (or battered?) anywhere in Scotland I suspect. In the morning it’s south to the smoke of Glasgow, then the borders.
