Dingwall 93.3 miles later

I hadn't been looking forward to today, knowing from the planning that it was the longest day, then to find heavy rain warnings. And we did get some of that and took shelter several times. BUT we had a strong tailwind much of the way and the A890 turned out to be a nicely graded road sober made good progress. In fact we averaged 13.5 mph which, considering the weight of the bikes, isn't bad. Tomorrow Rob is collecting our bags on his way up to join us so we will have lighter bikes from now. The photo shows one of the sunny bits on the A890/A832 with a mountain with an unpronounceable name. Traffic was pleasingly light. This evening we are meeting a couple Chris's friends who are on holiday here. The B&B is out of town a bit but a pleasant enough bungalow with a view across to the Cromarty Firth and the long road bridge across it. This is the furthest north I've ever been on the mainland! Until tomorrow that is .....
