Day 4 Dunbeath to Helmsdale

Distance 16.21 miles- cumulative distance 58.64 – time 5 hrs 45 mins – walking time 5hrs 15mins – Average speed 3.1 mph Accom B&B Belgrave Arms.

The day started well, with a domestic, as usual Steve was in the wrong and Lynn was very forgiving having incorrectly blamed Lynn for picking up and using some of his kit. After a lengthy search including campsite bins the items ‘appeared’ in Steve’s rucksack.

Another day on the A9 and the first day with some long climbs but we were excited by our first roundabout. We eagerly anticipate traffic lights.  Light showers again today but milder as we left Caithness and entered Sutherland. The only deer we saw today was roadkill so no cute deer photos today but Lynn found a friend who, unlike Steve, gave her flowers.

  1. Great blog, you two, keep it going as it’s making us chuckle! That bear is awesome, especially with his Elvis tie and MUCH better looking than Steve, Lynn! Keep safe πŸšΆπŸ»πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ™‹πŸΌ xx

    1. John I think your mistaken, that is Steve. All this walking has meant that Lynne hasn’t had time to shave him.
