Where I stayed
I set out with all good intentions of getting to SYHA Durness and stopping there for the night while paying a visit to Smoo Cave. I got to the hostel at around 11:30 and went down to visit Smoo Cave. This took approximately 10 minutes as there was not much to see except, yes you guessed it, a cave and some water!
So I decided to carry on driving along the North West Highland route, where around every corner was a photo opportunity so as you can imagine I was stopping the car every mile or so just to get out and take a photo
I arrived at my destination, Ullapool at around 16:00, parked the car up outside the hostel and went for a walk along the beach and through the town to get my bearings and to see where I could get some food. The SYHA Ullapool, opened at 17:00 and I booked in and got my bed sorted. Dinner was a Chinese takeaway....mmm!
I make my rolls for the next day and early to bed tonight as I have an early start in the morning.
