The rain did slow to a drizzle after breakfast, so I set out to walk some of the beaches, coast and areas around North Berwick. Of course I picked up several geocaches and photos along the way.
We headed north today – all the way north.

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.
We drove to Glenurquhart Forest using the A833, rather than via Inverness, as the day was good enough to get the hood down on the MX-5 and it is a much more exciting drive.
Once there it was a great place to walk, have our lunch, brew some tea and we scored several caches as well.
We did drive back along Loch Ness.
We got out walking today and so we did not waste the good weather we stayed local.
We decided to use geocaching to plan the route so the first stop was Tollie Red Kites – where we did see Red Kites and a weasel.
We also drove out to Knock Farril – a site of an ancient hill fort.
The weather was so good that we got the hood down on the MX-5.
Alex and I walked a circular route today, from Southrey using both The Viking Way and The Water Rail Way.
We stopped along the way to brew some fresh coffee, scored a geocache that I could not find last time I passed it and got a couple of good photos.
