Dreary weather today. Heavy cloud and a brisk breeze from the south-west with an occasional shower. A dreary road too. Very long, straight sections over open moorland.
There were a few more interesting things towards the end of the day. Several miles of giant wind turbines, and a Scottish Heritage site.
Hazel was her usual brilliant self; meeting me for lunch in Watten and finding the next night’s accommodation. She didn’t even give me a hard time when I produced the keys to last night’s room from my pocket. Oops.
Still, 19 additional miles under the belt. Feet are a bit sore but otherwise legs feel ok. Another nice place to stay; Loch Watten House.
An early night required as tomorrow could be interesting. 50mph winds are forecast for most of the day, and I’ll be on the A9 cliff-top road. If it’s dangerous I shan’t be walking. Stay tuned.
