Day 5 Helmsdale to Brora

Distance 10.58 miles – cumulative distance 69.22 miles – 3hrs 35 mins – actual walking 3hrs 30mins – pace 3.1 mph – camped Brora caravan club site.

After a large Scottish breakfast we set off on our last full day on the A9. A few dodgy bends with very narrow verges meant we played chicken with a few lorrys. Most drivers have left us plenty of space. The weather has been fine and Steve’s arms put in an appearance and no wooly hats required. An early finish left us with a free afternoon so we went for a walk along the beach into downtown Brora. The campsite is in a lovely location adjacent to the links golf course by the beach with fantastic views along the coast.

Thanks for all the comments please keep them coming. Our apologies for not answering each one individually but cell and wifi coverage has been intermittent.

Following a request for more photos of Steve, Lynn’s best effort so far is below.

Clearly our last spot the odd one out photo was too challenging for some, today we hope to have found the right level.

  2. I don’t get it there’s no Dear. Having said that it must be the sheep but not because it’s a sheep but because it’s walking across the field and the other are walking down the field!
