Thurso and back again….

A good weekend was had by all, although a bit showery on the way up over the Lecht and again for the last 20 miles to Thurso. The Royal Hotel was a  fine place to stay as long as you could remember your way about….a labyrinth indeed. For £35 a night it was fine and we all could stay in the same place. Saturday was dry and the run to Ullapool was good, although one of us stopped at Durness as his back tyre was knackered. (should have changed it before we left….) Some beach walks were had instead, more relaxing than a  blast for 200 miles. A good curry to finish the day and of course a few beers to wash it down, and we even got a  complimentary round from the proprietors!

A good run home on sunday in superb weather, but some delays at Tomintoul on the way back thanks to a cycle event closing the Lecht.
