My two nights at the Strathy Inn were comfortable and relaxed. The breakfasts were thoughtfully presented. My hosts went out of their way to be helpful, checking bus timetable for me. The restaurant was obviously popular with locals and people staying at accommodation elsewhere. It offered a much more interesting range of dishes than one might expect from the usual 'bar meals.'

... changed from our last visit in 1989. Re-enactments, conducted tour, and excellent interpretative centre. The last battle fought on British soil, 16th April 1746, saw the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites for good. Fish and chips for lunch at the small village of Helmsdale (Valley of the Helmets). Driving up the east coast, good weather and ...
... house there were a few builders there that I asked if we were in the right spot. We took a few photos and headed on our way. The next "castle" we went to find was part of Dall Estate.

Vince was talking and was stopped in his tracks as we sailed past the junction with Charles still asleep in the back. Steve & Elaine just laughed, which woke Charles. ...
... t wanted to stop at any B&Bs in passing. The first few looked a bit unprepossessing so we didn't bother to go in; we stopped instead at a big hotel: full! So we thought we'd push on to Kirkwall and get something there. We had parked in the morning outside a pleasant looking pub and hotel on the seafront, so we thought we'd start there with a drink and see whether it looked good for the night. The drink was fine, but the hotel was full. Instead we sat using their free ...
... 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 ...
