  • The Last of the Mohicans
    5 May 2019

    A note on Scottish weather: if water is falling out of the sky, it's not necessarily raining.


  • The Pass of the Cattle
    6 May 2019

    The day dawns clear and sunny. We head down to the hotel to get some breakfast. Packing up after eating, we get on the road around ten. About three hours later, we sit down for lunch at the Applecross Inn. We've covered 20km.


  • Beautiful Soup
    7 May 2019

    Sunshine again. We were 30km under planned distance yesterday, so this is how we start our day.


  • Unhappy Feet
    8 May 2019

    It's blinding bright. I still can't feel my feet. It's too early. I refuse to wake up.


  • The Wee Mad Road of Inverpolly
    9 May 2019


    That might be the best day I've spent on a bike, anywhere, anywhen.


  • The North Coast
    10 May 2019

    We have a breakfast of cheese and ham sandwiches in the morning sun.


  • Flow Country
    11 May 2019

    Easy day today. We're hoping the wind blows us all the way to Bonar Bridge.


  • Loop Complete
    12 May 2019

    Pack up, roll out. Last day on the bike.
