After a 7 month absence from my coast walk I couldn't wait to get going again.... but I had an 8 hour journey to my start point!. I arrived at Dunbeath just after 5pm, I was hoping to make it to Helmsdale before it got dark but I had forgotten to factor in that Scotland in May gets darker a lot later than Devon!
|Looking back to Dunbeath|
The rest of the journey was a little up and down and skirted around the village of Badbea, I arrived at 9.15pm and it was still light (phew!) but it was still light at 10.15pm so I needn't have worried about the time. :)
Accommodation: Helmsdale Hostel £19.00. I was attracted to this Hostel because of having single beds instead of Bunks. It was very clean and very comfortable....for a hostel!
