Land's End to John O'Groats Cycletouring Trip Part 2


Day 37 - Ullapool to Scourie

The distance to Scourie was 43 miles with no other campsites on the way except for one just outside Ullapool. The scenery by this campsite was exceptional. However, I was alarmed that I in the first three hours of cycling I could only make 15 miles progress.

I stopped for lunch at a cafe in Inchnadamph. There is a monument here to the Geologists Ben Peach and John Horns who were part of a team back in the 30's exploring and discovering the geological history of the area. The scenery is excellent, and is now the second day of such views.

I stop at Arovreck Castle on Loch Assynt, and take a few photographs including this one of a boy fishing.

There were good views of the Quinag as I eventually get to Scourie. The campsite here is clean, attractive and well kept. The ground is tiered and the views good. The charge was £4 for the night.

In the evening I went to the local pub where I met Vanessa and Stefan from Germany who were camping at the campsite. We enjoyed a few beers and some games of pool.

The distance travelled today was 43 miles.
