      ... 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 ...

      Total mileage: 44
      Actual cycling time: 4 hours 53 minutes

      Who would have thought Scottish weather this far north would be so fine - thank you high pressure!

      The journey for the day would follow the north coast east until we hit Thurso, our last stop before John O'Groats. The landscape for the first 20 miles was still hilly ...

This is famous for being one of the best spots in the world from which to view bottlenose dolphins from land, as a pod of about forty big ones (up to 4m long!) live year-round in the Firth and play and feed in the incoming tide. They are reputed to be easily visible when the salmon are running (ie, now.) We stood about on the stony beach for a while, freezing to death, amongst the serious wildlife photographers with ...

      ... br> Next port of call was Dunnet Head, which is the genuine most northerly part of Britain, John O'Groats be buggered. (Locals say scathingly, "John O'Groats is just the end of the road!") It is reached by driving through a most gorgeous pink, purple, orange and golden peat moor, all studded with little lochans. The colours all come from the heather, of which several species are now over, and all covered with little golden seedpods, but other ...

      ... br> We had an excellent lamb dish and then made our way carefully back to Thurso in the rain. Funny how one never drives across country after dark when touring a foreign country - or we don't, anyway. You are where you're going to be by dusk, and then if you drive somewhere for dinner it's in the town where you're staying. Anyway, it wasn't so bad (says the navigator) and we are now safely ensconced back on our attic overlooking Hoy after a day filled with unexpected ...
