Day Three

We left Ullapool in the mist, heading north along the North Coast 500.

We saw the ruins of Ardvreck Castle on the shore of Loch Assynt.
The views were amazing – dramatic coast,
rolling hills,
lochs and heather.
We waited for the sheep to pass.
We followed the coastline.
We stopped at the Drumbeg viewpoint.
We crossed the Kylesku bridge.
The Kyle of Durness reflected the lovely blue sky.
We stopped for a picnic overlooking the ferry to Cape Wrath, the most north westerly part of the Scottish mainland.
Balnakeil beach,
where a game of cricket was in progress.
Beach near Tongue

The Bettyhill hotel, our hotel for the night, overlooking the beach at Torrisdale Bay.
We went for a walk on Farr beach, just up the road.
Jellyfish
Andy on the beach.
Looking inland from Farr beach.

Tomorrow we are headed for Wick, via John o’Groats.

Stay safe
