    ... a huge number of massive wind turbines spinning away.

    Thurso, the capital of Caithness is a normal enough appearing Scottish town in the midst of the northern barrens. My hostel was in the center of town. I noticed from the lilting sing-songy way of speaking of the hostel owners that the accent in the far north is quite different, probably very Gaelic influenced. I had to concentrate hard to try to understand what he was saying to me. ...

    ... the mist and fog followed around the bend and a lovely rainbow spread it's arc right over the Old Man. It really was a spiritual moment.

    The old Atlantic was quite rough after that. High up the swells we went and down in the trough.

    ... and interesting talk, well worth a donation to the upkeep in their collecting box.

    It's getting late and we head towards Wick. Our last stop of the day is at Noss Head where we are able to visit the ruined Castle Sinclair Giringoe. It makes a spectacular silhouette against the blackening clouds on the horizon. A history of the castle along with sketches of how it would have looked are placed along the way. We also observe a peregrine falcon as it swoops past ...

    Woke refreshed at Mrs Leask's. Now off to John O Groats. Remember the saying 'don't like the weather? Well wait 5 minutes and it'll change'. That's what I got when I left hail, rain, sunshine, but my constant companion was the wind; a flipping north westerly - in my face the whole way.

    Got to JO'G and had obligatory photo taken with a man with ...
