... as well. Which David Cameron has said will allow the various parts of the UK to start to self govern. I think this may be the best option, it gives more power and independence to everyone while allowing the unity to keep us secure and strong as a whole. Hopefully there will be change for the better and maybe in ten years we can be in a better position to become independent. Whoo! That's a lot of brain work! Im glad it's over! I'm currently in Kirkwall waiting to go into ...

... Enjoy a wee dram of the finest whisky at the Highland Park distillery before returning to your hotel.

When we arrive we walk around the walled garden which is wonderful. Big ...

... our first goal is to get there for an early lunch or by lunch time at the latest.     After yesterday's ride the legs are a little sluggish and the weather is delivering a cold biting headwind.    Dave keeps stopping to blow his nose, which isn't a problem as Tina keeps lagging behind (her excuse admiring the scenery). Several local buses go past that look pretty empty.    Tempted as one of us is (not the scenery admirer) to jump on the next one, ...

... even longer detours away from the sea. It almost seemed liked the sort of 'badland' topography one associates with semi-arid regions.
The next bay I came to was Melvich Bay. Fortunately there was a good footbridge leading to the beach avoiding a long walk along to the road. Beyond the bay, the village of Portskerra was perched on a headland and the road looped through the houses.
By now it was after 6pm and I was conscious of my destination, the ...
