The author hopes this travelogue/biography will be useful to other motorhomers planning a similar tour, especially when it comes to the difficulties of driving a large vehicle along roads that were originally designed for horses and carts! Written in a light-hearted and sometimes self-deprecating style, it includes ideas for stop-overs, snippets of history, personal observations and lots of photographs.
It follows the original blog format (dates), and each section gives the mileage covered that day. It differs from standard travel books in that it’s about touring popular tourist destinations but keeping away from the hotspots and finding other lovely places to go. There is lots written about all the famous places in Scotland and Ireland. Bessie, Mike and Me is unique in that it offers a more offbeat type of tour.
