Northwest Highlands

In late September 2016 I flew up to Inverness to join Graham Nevett for a week's cycling in NW Scotland.

My start was delayed for a day while I waited for my bike to arrive in Inverness, but in the late afternoon of 27 September I took the the train north to Invershin and cycled up Strath Oykel (in rain and a gale force headwind) to the Altnacealgach Motel. The rain continued all of the next day too, when I rode north to Scourie where I met Graham at the Minch View B&B. The following day we continued north to Durness where I spent two nights at Hillside B&B and we made an unsucsessful attempt to ride to Cape Wrath. We left Durness for Crask (staying at the Crask Inn) and finished by taking the train south from Lairg back to Inverness.
