A bit misty as I made my way out of Strathy this morning but I was assured that it would burn off before the afternoon session of walking!
I made my way along the main road and turned left towards Portskerra where I popped in to see Sarah and Bob and their new addition to the family at their home, I had first met Sarah at a BnB in Withernsea on my trek up the east coast of England so it was nice to catch up and eventually meet her husband.
I walked out of Portskerra and followed the coast to the lovely beach at Melvich, here I had my first "do not use this bridge as it is unsafe" sign of the day but whats life without a little danger? I picked up the main road again after Melvich and made my way to Reay and past the Nuclear Power Station at Dounreay.
I turned the corner at Holborn Head and picked up a well trodden track that took me down to the lighthouse at Scrabster, which has been converted into someones home and a lovely tearoom!
Accommodation: The Weigh Inn Lodges. £35.00 BnB. A very big Motel on the outskirts of Thurso, not bad for the price though.
