    ... moor and coastal scenery. Then to John O'Groats, NOT the most northerly tip of Scotland( see tomorrow). John had wanted to come here since 1989 and today he made it. Looked around the small village and took the usual photos with the signpost, then moved from the small settlement to the headland at Duncansby Head to camp. There we met Nigel and Sandra, an English ...

    Royal Hotel, Thurso. Weather fine with clouds, sunny periods and then some rain showers late in the day A lovely breakfast at the B&B before we left to drive through Inverness and up the east coast to Wick, John O'Groats, Dunnet Head and into Thurso. We stopped at Golspie for morning tea. Free parking and free toilets up north! We then stopped at Hill of Many Stanes, a Pict historical site. It had 22 rows of stones up ended and they are not sure whether they are astronomical ...

    ... pie from Jaimisons bakers. We checked the route ahead and decided to include Dunnet Head, the most northerly point on the mainland. This would ensure out trip totalled more that 1000 miles. So on through Dunnet then a left turn. Now we knew there was a wind. As the road wound its way northwest we were climbing into the wind. We were now getting a taste of what that poor couple we passed earlier were going through. I felt for them, it must have been hell. We ...

    ... be for me to have a bigger car because it is sturdy and seems to do well on rugged terrain.

    The best part about this day was going inside some burial cairns. They are mounds of stone with inner chambers that the ancient people of Scotland used. I will include some pics. I thought they would be bigger, scarier, and darker than they were. There were two cairns, a long one and a smaller round one, called the Grey Cairns of Camster. The inner chamber in the smaller one was ...
