19.55 miles- cumulative miles 88.77 – 8hrs 5mins – walking time 6hrs 35mins – 3mph – camped Dornach Caravan site
Started the day with an hour lie in due to rain but it cleared up and stayed dry.
Left the A9 (hurray!) and walked along the beach from Brora to Golspie passing through the grounds of Dunrobin Casstle. Saw loads of seals including females waiting to pup. A first for us was seeing an Otter all of this wildlife slowed our progress as the seals demanded and posed for photos. Had to rejoin the A9 for a further 7 miles (boo!) and much to our collective competitive disgust we were overtaken by another walker who was obviously in a hurry, hardly spoke to us and hardly moved aside for the passing traffic and he was only wearing trainers (on his feet) he will be lucky to survive past Inverness.
When we rejoined the A9 our eager anticipation for traffic lights was at last fulfilled with a fine set in Golspie.
The final 5 miles was along minor roads next to the Moray Firth so even more seals and bird life. Dornach is a tourist centre busy with golfers.

You lucky pair, seeing wildlife you would only see in Scotland.
That’s what happens when you have a lie in, you end up letting a naked rambler over take you 😉
