NC500 Part 4

We started the day recovering from a stormy night. A couple of tents around us were flat on the floor by morning light. We went to bed after a good cup of tea. I’m not sure how well we slept as I heard the wind and the rain on numerous occasions during the night. The £99 tent stood up to its claim of being waterproof (to 3000 mm) and stormproof. 

Coffee was at the cutest little hut which had an amazing view across Loch Eriboll. The owner, an elderly gentleman, hailed from Yorkshire and made excellent cakes and scones. It was well worth stopping. 

The scenery along the north coast is just as majestic but entirely different from the west coast. I’ll leave you to enjoy it for yourself. 

The next stretch brought us to Thurso. The scenery is changing but the variety is engaging. I love this touring life. Keep watching there’s still more to come.
