It was wet and raining this morning when I got up, so I thought I’d drive out somewhere and get a cooked breakfast. Somewhere was going to be Haddington, but that turned out to be the place where the only car park I could find was for people working for the council. Just to be sure I drove back through the town but still could not see a car park!
So somewhere turned out to be North Berwick and this is what I spent my money on.
Forres in Bloom
Loch Morlich and the Cairngorm Mountains
Logie Steading and River Findhorn
Yachts in the Caledonian Canal Locks
Black Rock Gorge
Evanton Wood and the River Glass
Thunder storm at Dingwall Campsite
John o’ Groats and Ness of Duncansby
We had been camped here for eight nights – so we left our marks! A couple of days of sun and rain should fix it.
The MX-5 is not big enough for two to go camping, so we need some extra luggage room. The boot bag fits securely and adds 50l of extra space.
We headed north today – all the way north.
John o’ Groats
We walked out along the coast, leaving the tourist area behind. There were even two caches along our route – the most northerly mainland caches.
We stopped here mainly to eat, but we also visited the “shortest street”
Ebenezer Place was built in 1883 and measures only 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m) long. It has only one address: No 1.
It was also the location of our last geocache of this holiday.
For a small Highland town Invergordon can be very busy – cruise liners stop here. Today there were two of them at the docks. We were stopped by four Americans, who asked for directions, their cruise was heading on to Reykjavik and then to New York.
We visited the interesting museum, avoided the craft fair and any cafe, but still picked up four geocaches in this very busy town.
Having spent some time on the couches in the Sunflower Too (sic) Cafe, and with the weather now turned sunny we went for a walk along the coast at Tain.
