We has another big day of driving ahead of us, we made our way through the cute town of Ullapool a picturesque fishing town, nestled on the shred of Lochbroom where we settled into a tavern for some not so amazing coffee and hot chocolate. Stopping at Kylesku for lunch (sausage rolls with sauce), we were again privilege to another great view of Loch Glencoul.
Arriving in Durness a wild and remote town surrounded by dramatic landscape, we were immediately happy to be staying a night there. It is the setting for the most north westerly point in the British mainland, with spectacular scenery of rocky coastline, pristine beaches with turquoise waters and vast open spaces. We made our way on foot visiting the Smoo Caves (a gaping hole in a sheer limestone cliff) and the beautiful Balnakiel beach. It was again another stunning Scottish location that we loved. On arrival we were exhausted from over a 1000miles of driving and less than ideal sleeps, we attempted to find the perfect sheltered camping spot perched on a cliff top overlooking the stunning coast, but gale force winds were against us. After a little reluctance we decided that one night in a bed was needed. Finding a cute little hostel (Lazy Crofter Bunkhouse) we bunkered down, made our way for the pub and enjoyed beers and hot chips for dinner. Perfect.
