    Journey to Thurso

    A travel blog entry by rerowand on Aug 08, 2014

    ... We had an hour to go to Thurso. Along the way we saw some oil rigs that had been decommissioned, and later near Thurso, we could see active oil rigs. We did make a photo stop at a statue in honor of those Scots who had to emigrate to other countries due to the displacements during the Highland Clearances. Once at the hotel St. Clair, a family run hotel (our guide compared it to Fawlty Towers), we waited for the bags. The ...

    ... or so in the middle of a massive pod of dolphins playing jump-and-chase in the late afternoon sunshine. It was absolutely magical, and has rather spoiled us for other dolphin sightings.

    So we went back to Rosemarkie to see their ruined cathedral. It's quite sad, really, as only the sacristy and north aisle remain, the rest of the cathedral having been completely removed and built into sheep pens or cottages over the years. The sacristy at some later stage was used as ...

When ...

    ... 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 ...

    The day started with Mo jumping on my bed at 5:30am shouting, "Its Christmas, Its Christmas!" Not sure, but I think I detected a bit of excitement. So, were up creeping around the house with the most loose floorboards in the world. Helped ourselves to breakfast, did a final bit of packing and were out the front door. We collected our bikes from the barn, I loaded the luggage onto mine, set off ...
