‘A journey of a thousand miles starts with… a google search’
Over the years I’ve had numerous idle pub conversations about how satisfying it would be to visit all the MBA bothies in Scotland. Then, on one particularly significant hazy evening at the back end of 2011, an inspired drinking buddy suggested writing a book about my pet subject. It didn’t take more than a precursory search online to realise there was a gaping hole waiting to be filled with a seminal reference text, and my pulse quickened as I begun to think about how mad it would be if I could actually get all the information together. The first obvious stumbling block was that I had no access to a car, so I made a rather rash assessment that the whole project could be undertaken by bike and public transport, and thus bothiesonabike was born.
Do get in touch about anything bothy related, I’m always happy to help
