Miles travelled: 66
Metres climbed: 1175
But the views were stunning (pictures to follow…)
By the time we reached Melvich we were all lagging slightly, but after a great soup and toffee apple muffin (highly recommended!) at the Halladale Inn, we were revived and happily the road did begin to flatten out a little :).
We went on through Thurso and the beautiful Dunnet bay…
We then had a quick coffee in Castletown, which the lovely Laura at the Castletown hotel refused to let us pay for 🙂
And it was just another 16 miles into quite a strong headwind before we finally made it to John O Groats!
We have all been so touched and grateful for all the support and kindness we’ve received from friends and strangers alike… It’s still hard to believe that we’ve actually made it! Maybe it will feel more real after our “little swim” as Alice calls it…
