Scotland Tour – Day 3

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.
Andy on the beach.
Looking inland from Farr beach.
View from the hotel.

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

Stay safe

  1. Your trip covers areas from where my ancestors came from. It sounds amazing. Look forward to next instalment. 😊

  2. wonderful colourful deserted beaches. the jellyfish pic lends itself to some sort of creative project for me in due course perhaps. enjoy your explorations! the heather should be out above some of the less busy beaches a d hillocks on the Isles of scilly too – our destination next week.
