I battled for 3 miles against the wind to get to Duncansby Head, but the wind has kindly escorted me back to Thurso.
It's been a hard couple of days, - from Tongue I left quite late as I met a nice gent there who let me use his PC to do some uploads and blogging. When I got going the rain started and at Bettyhill it started to get very wet, so I went into the Hotel and ordered a haggis & Cheese Panini.
After that I stopped to chat toe the Digital UK guys at melvic as they've just switched over up here, and then it was into the rain and a headwing battering all the way to J'O G. I called in at Dunnet Head on the way as the rain eased for half an hour, but after that it gave me a good soaking all the way to the hostel.
I'm now retracing the road back towards Melvic, and then turning South and down Strath Hallidale - should be pretty, and quiet and out of the winf I hope!!!
