In the August issue of MOTOR SPORT I note that you have resurrected my old Wolseley 7 (page 1108).
This was indeed an horizontally opposed twin 14 b.h.p, manufactured in 1923, so. like its one time owner. I should think it was veteran.
The trip took place in 1931 and in 1959 my wife (the same one) and I did a re-run over the exact route.
Always having a penchant for faraway places. the undersigned, when over 60, drove a Mini 848 c.c. from Gothenberg in Sweden, over the tortuous Arctic highway to the North Cape in Norwegian Lapland.
Again in a Mini, at well over 70,Bealach nam Bo, the Pass of the Cattle, was the attraction. This pass rises to 2,054 ft. wtth an assortment of hairpin bends at 1 in 4 gradient.
At the summit, the views of Skye, the Coolins. the Outer Isles, Lochs Kishorn and Carron are breathtaking.
The road continues to Applecross and until recently was the only link inland.
