Hefty side slab that. Lovely pictures as ever. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Bit of an unexpected one, this. With the A9 just below I expected it to be utterly trashed. Clearly it's not, although the vibe's not the best. But great views and as you say, hefty chamber stones. That'll do. Hopefully more people travelling up the coast might want to stop off for a break... or head up Glen Loth for Ben Uarie! GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Seeing your epic Scottish visits does make me sometimes wish I could drive. The train is less willing to stop off and let us out! Certainly makes me want to explore the area above Dornoch some more though. So much to see :) thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Ironically , perhaps, I don't like driving and don't like cars in general. Very much a means to an end although it means I can't do linear walks like you do ruling some stuff out nowadays. I prefer going out on day trips from a base to touring 2,500 miles... But guess the lack of agenda on these trips suits my impetuous nature GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Yes, there's definitely some upsides to walking. The main downside (of walking from a public transport drop-off) is that you can't always start anywhere near the place you want to get to, so sometimes there's tedious miles of roads or paths before you really get going and often not much time when you eventually get there.

I like the lack of agenda thing though, and you're certainly getting to see loads of high quality stuff.
