Home after a fabulous 5 days away split between Kentallan near Ballachulish and Dornoch. The weather was kind to us too but my plans to swim at Dornoch were hit on the head due to the size of the waves!

Had some wonderful drives… most notably up to John O Groats then along the coast to Tongue followed by a 34 mile drive along a single track road through the most breath taking scenery back to Dornoch.

The only problems we had were with car… my fuel gauge stopped working… so I had to guess when to fill up… this bloody xtrail really is a crock of shite!… didn’t help matters when we visited Portmanonack … only car in the car park… when we returned after a walk on the beach we discovered someone had rammed the back of my car! No note left but it was a hefty blow… I suspect the dustbin lorry that was doing the rounds but I cannot prove it… the air was blue!
