Stayed the night at the Portland Arms which after being closed for three years re-opened under new owners on 26th March after 12 weeks being refurbished. Well done to the new owners we had a lovely room, a proper Scottish breakfast including haggis and a warm welcome- we wish them all the best.
Another day plodding along the A99 which became the A9 today. A short day but we have learnt to ease our bodies and feet into the first week – and so far so good. Met a fellow walker from Cologne doing a circumnavigation of the North Sea, only 6,500kilometers. He is splitting it into four trips – don’t know why he can’t do it in one go. He pulls a trolley with his kit. Another highlight was a herd of deer can you spot the odd one out?
